  1. Make four foil packets by the following method, using 1-foot squares of heavy duty aluminum foil: fold square in half and smooth flat. Seal each of the narrow ends by folding over each edge three times to make a 1/4-inch border, smoothing flat after every fold. You should now have a foil packet that is open on one long side. Repeat to form four packets.
  2. In a bowl or resealable plastic bag, combine the potatoes, chicken cubes, red peppers, onion, celery, and barbeque sauce; mix well. Evenly divide the mixture among the foil packets. Roll up the open end of the packets to seal.
  3. Place packets on a grill over the coals of a fire. Cook until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is fully cooked, about 25 minutes, depending on the intensity of the heat.

I have tried this recipe with success and will be making it for our July 4th BBQ.

Perfect for camping. You don't need to precook your potatoes.....just cut them a little smaller. Have been making similar recipes like this for years and when having trouble with potatoes, I jus...

We do a similar recipe when we go camping. We use canned potatoes so they cook about the same time as the other veggies. We even add velvetta cubes (instead of BBQ) for a cheesy sauce. YUM!!

I've never had a problem with the potatoes being raw and we like our vegetables to have a bit of bite. So, with that being said the peppers will not be soggy and cooked all the way through. Some...

This is an easy to prepare recipe for camping, but it can also be made at home either on the grill or in the oven. Just wrap in a packet and cook until chicken and potatoes are done.

Simple, quick, and quite good. As mentioned before, I cooked the potatoes a bit before mixing everything together.

We thoroughly enjoyed this dish even though we cooked it in the oven. I too was skeptical about the amount of barbecue sauce it called for but it really wasn't all that much when separated into...
