#WeekdaySupper Chicken and Veggies Packets

For summer weekday meals, I love to use the grill.  It is so easy to turn on the gas, let it heat up and prepping the ingredients indoors.  The heat stays outside instead of inside my kitchen, which is an added bonus!

These foil packets first became popular with my family when we were camping.  We always looked for easy to make, delicious meals with fast clean up.  It occurred to me that I might like those same qualities at home and so we started making these foil packets, especially during the summer.

There are endless possibilities for these packet dinners.  Experiment with your family to find their favorites.  We love BBQ and using our favorite sauce makes this a treat for all of us!
