Pineapple Chicken Foil Packets

Pineapple Chicken Foil Packets

There’s nothing better than not having to do dishes after a meal. With these pineapple chicken foil packets all you need to do is throw everything into a foil packet, seal, grill, and enjoy!

Pineapple is one of my favorite foods to grill, and I am always looking for more ways to incorporate the juicy fruit into our daily dinner routine. Usually we end up just coring the pineapple (if you don’t have a pineapple corer yet go buy one now, you won’t be sorry!) then eating the pineapple rounds straight off the grill. This time, however, fresh pineapple adds a brightness to this otherwise straight-forward chicken dish.

Foil Packets

Start by placing 3-4 oz of raw chicken breast on a square of aluminum foil. Bend the foil to create a bowl-like structure. Add in raw broccoli florets (or any other vegetable of your choice), a pineapple round, and drizzle sauce over the whole thing. Seal your packet up and place on a grill. Done. The only dishes you’ll need is a small bowl to make the sauce and possibly a cutting board if you aren’t using pre-cut vegetables.

These chicken packets are the perfect light, summer dinner. To complete your dinner, I recommend grilling up corn or potatoes to serve on the side. We had some leftover rice that we heated up to go with it. Whatever you serve with this, I hope you enjoy!

Here’s a toast to not spending your summer nights not doing dishes!

    This is such a good idea for a complete meal in a packet! I might give this a try with tofu!
