Campfire Chicken Foil Packet Dinners

Campfire Foil Dinner packets are a fun and easy way to cook dinner. You can mass-produce these or allow each person to customize their foil packet just the way they like them. Use heavy duty aluminum foil and double-wrap for added protection. Then just nestle the dinners into the campfire coals and let them cook while you relax!

Campfire Chicken Foil Packet Dinners

  • 1-1/2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken thighs – cubed
  • 3 onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 green bell peppers, coarsely chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, coarsely chopped
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, sliced thin
  • 8-10 small red or yellow potatoes, cubed
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 tsp ground sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.

  2. Using Heavy-Duty aluminum foil – tear off 12 large sheets (to make top and bottom of packets). Evenly divide the chicken mixture between 6 sheets. Use the remaining 6 sheets to top the chicken mixture. Roll up the edges tightly. Tear off additional foil to wrap each packet with a 2nd layer of aluminum foil (you need each packet double-wrapped).

  3. Place chicken packets in campfire coals. Cook at least 40 minutes.

  4. Carefully remove from coals and open packet (being especially careful of steam coming out of packet). Dinner is done when chicken is cooked through and potatoes are soft & tender.
