  • 4 chicken breasts 4 oz each (boneless & skinless)
  • 15-16 green beans ends trimmed, & cut into 2-3 pieces
  • 2 carrots peel and slice Large carrots
  • 1/2 head Brocolli and cauliflower cut both into florets
  • 2 bell peppers red, green, or yellow, deseeded & diced
  • 1 onion peeled, quartered, & layers separated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper as per taste
  • ½ cup barbeque sauce or any sauce of choice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika for extra heat, optional
  • 4 tbsp cilantro freshly chopped
  • 4 heavy-duty foil sheets


  • Set the grill for preheating at medium-high heat.
  • Lay the 4 foil sheets (each sheet being 18*12 inches) on an even surface. Place a chicken breast on the center of each foil sheet.
  • Divide the green beans, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, diced bell peppers, & onion pieces into 4 equal parts and arrange them around the chicken. Drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle salt & pepper on top.
  • Prepare the sauce in a bowl by mixing the barbeque sauce, honey, lemon juice, & smoked paprika.
  • Brush the sauce generously on both sides of chicken breasts and keep the leftover sauce aside for later. Sprinkle ½ tbsp chopped cilantro on top of each chicken.
  • Fold the edges of the foil sheets over the chicken & veggies. Seal securely ensuring they don’t open up during grilling.
  • Place the foil packets on the preheated grill rack cautiously. Grill for 10-12 minutes on each side.
  • Finally, remove from the grill and let them sit for 2-3 minutes before opening. Serve them by brushing the chicken with the leftover sauce and fresh cilantro garnish.
  • To Cook the Grilled BBQ Chicken Packets in the Oven:
  • Place the prepared foil packets on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° F for 20-25 minutes on a preheated oven.
  • After baking, partially open the top of the foil packets, and broil for 3-4 minutes.


Be sure to mix and match Veggie. I use what I have on hand, great way to use up odds and ends from a weekend of camping.
