    These are wonderful! But my inner grammer alarm is going off. I just can’t help myself and in no way trying to be rude, but y’all need to proof these!

    “You basically mix the chicken, veggies, and spices in a large boil (you mean bowl?). Then place “them individual” (you mean them in individual) foil packets and bake for 20 minutes. The result is unbelievably tender chicken and veggies that melt in your mouth.

    My family loves these foil packets because everyone gets their own foil packet and opening the foil is so much fun! (one more foil for good measure)

    WITH SUMMER HERE – CAN THIS RECIPE BE COOKED ON THE GRILL INSTEAD OF THE OVEN? IF SO, DO YOU KNOW FOR HOW LONG?

      Layla

      Yes, Grill for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

    yolanda

    Do you close the packets or leave them open during cooking?

    Amanda

    Do I need to cook longer if I double the recipe?

      Layla

      I would keep it in there another 10 minutes to be safe.

    besides leaving out the salt-how can you lower the sodium-it is way to high for me and could I do this in my crockpot

      HomeCook

      Are you for real? or was the recipe changed? It says salt to taste…? Add a bit more garlic and omit the salt entirely. Additionally, make certain that the chicken you buy is not injected with brining (sometimes labelled as -salt solution)

        Ty

        The sodium says 1238!

          Layla

          Thanks for pointing that out! The old nutritional calculator was a little buggy and exporting crazy amounts of sodium on all the recipes. I’ve updated the recipe with the new nutritional calculator.

    Lauren

    This required a lot of extra cooking time. Recommend placing chicken pieces on top to ensure they cook through. Ones buried in the veggies didn’t cook as well.

    This is delicious and perfect for cold winter nights!!
