One of my favorite traditions growing up was tin foil dinners. That’s what we called them anyway. My mom always made them the same way: handmade hamburger patties + quartered baby potatoes + baby carrots. We’d cook them on the grill or over an open fire and when they were done, smother the heck out of them with ketchup.

Every now and then I still get cravings for my mom’s tin foil dinners, like this week I was dying for one. So I made one… with a totally new twist. Okay basically the only thing that was the same about it was the idea of food wrapped in foil and cooked on the grill. I swapped out hamburger meat for chicken and added 6 other simple yet totally irresistible ingredients…

pineapple + chicken + red peppers + green peppers + onion + the BEST and EASIEST two ingredient sauce everrrrr x10.

This recipe just might be my new favorite summertime dinner – try it, you’ll fall in love with it too!

Yummy! This sounds really good!!

    Thanks Shawnna! We really loved how easy and tasty this meal was!!

Mmm! Im definitely going to make these this week for my family!

Could you cook these in the oven instead of grilling them?

    I haven’t tried it but I bet you could! Probably at 350 degrees but I’m not exactly how long they will take to cook so you’ll need to check on the chicken here and there to check for doneness 🙂

This looks so good! It’s on my list of recipes to try 🙂
What temperature would you use on the grill?
