We are big lovers of this recipe, everything is cooked together in tin foil, all the flavors mingling, tastes amazing. It has taken a bit of time to figure out just how much to make, because, my kids really like it, I really like it, and I like to have leftovers for lunch the next day.
Bonus, you can cook it in the oven, or toss them on the BBQ. This makes it perfect for the whole year.

Dice your veggies – potatoes, carrots, onions. Minced garlic – a lot. Dice your chicken. Try to cut things evenly, so that everything cooks evenly.
Lay out your tin foil. We cook about two servings in each piece of tin foil to give you an idea of how much is in each packet. Use a little butter to cover the bottom of the tin foil to prevent sticking. Add in all the veggies, the chicken, garlic and some salt and pepper to taste. Top with some real bacon bits.
Foil it over, sides and the ends to keep the steam and juices in.
Bake at 400 until cooked through, about 45 minutes. Make sure your chicken is cooked when you check it, we don’t want anyone to get sick from this delicious hobo chicken recipe.
