BBQ Chicken Packs

This is a recipe I have had and used for years. This is the first time I made it for Jon. Its very easy and pretty quick to put together. I have seen it w/ different meats and veggies and on the grill or in the oven. The packs make it perfect for individual portions and taste. This is the only way I have tried it yet.

 BBQ Chicken Packs
3 Boneless Skinless Chicken breast (1 for dinner and 1/2 for lunch each)
4 small ears of corn
Family size can of Ranch Style Beans, drained
8 tbsp butter (2 per pack)
your fav bbq sauce
aluminum foil
Preheat oven to 400.

Tear out 4 large pieces of aluminum foil
Place meat, veggies, butter down first.
Top w/ bbq sauce and seasonings.
 Dont accidentally open the spoon end of the season salt and pour it allllll over the packet.

Place packets on backing sheet and cook for 40 mins, or until chicken is cooked thru.

Make sure you check all the chicken before serving. 3 out of 4 were done, but one was still under cooked. Luckily it was for lunch today and we just stuck it back on the over while we ate.

Fat 27*

And here is the yummy finished product. Its really juicy once its done and it may seem too much but as you eat and kinda dip the chicken in the juice w/ the beans and corn, its perfect. So good.
*So this would have been a VERY healthy meal w/o the butter, which added 204 calories and pretty much all the fat. Hmmm. I no longer believe in using margarine. But maybe cut it in half or out completely and just spray w/ pam. Its not too bad if the rest of your day is good. And everything in moderation really.

  1. It looks a little eeww lol but I'm sure it tasted good. Butter and fats are good for you, they are healthy! I do mostly low carb and fats are my best friends.
