This Is The Ultimate BBQ Chicken Recipe For Summer!

Easy grilled chicken smothered with bbq sauce and topped with veggies is the ultimate summer food!! Each little packet is complete with tender, juicy and delicious meat and veggies.

Why, yes, I seriously AM showing you how to drench chicken in barbecue sauce, stick it in a foil-pack and grill it! It all started with FFWD…
Besides, if it wasn’t for foil-pack dinners, we wouldn’t survive. Okay, kidding! But still. It’s a good story.

SO! Hiiii, you guyyyyys! How are you? All is well? GOOD!

In this corner over here it’s a little past midnight, I’m chomping on Wheat Thins – reduced fat – and talking to you!

Why am I up this late, working?

Beeeecause… I went for a run on the treadmill at 10 pm and now I am friggin’ wired! I can’t fall asleep. I can’t even sit still. I could literally go for a Tarjay-run right this minute, if only Tarjay was open this late.

I’m also starving, and looking at this delicious grilled barbecue chicken is not helping. I could eat a horse. I won’t. But I could.

Grilled BBQ Chicken Recipe

I occasionally pride myself on being able to throw together somewhat creative and delicious meals including chicken – which is something that someone must do when their only reason for not going vegetarian IS grilled chicken – and adding things like tons of sweet-with-heat barbecue sauce is something I could inhale day after day.

Come to think of it, we can never get enough of this. You just can’t stop taking, bite after bite… By the end of they day?!? Only crumbs remain. Seriously awesome chicken… seriously.

I’m a very fun girl, I promise.

This Chicken Has The Best Homemade BBQ Sauce

Okay so, the chicken and veggies are really incredible. I enjoy this more than the Italian Chicken I made for you last year. This is packed with enough flavor that I’d MAYBE consider eating it without the barbecue sauce. I’m lying.

The real winner here IS the barbecue sauce! AND I want to slather it on everything humanly possible.

    This turned out perfect as written. So delicious, not to mention healthy! Will be making this again soon!

  2. Renae says:

    I made these over the 4th of july and everyone loved them. The only issue I had was all the liquid that was in the pouch when I opened them. How is everyone else keeping this from happening.? A little liquid is good to keep chicken from drying out but I had to have a bowl on the table to drain each pouch before plating them. Will small holes in the foil end up making it all dry out since most of the liquid will escape?

  3. Charlene Connell says:

    We grill this up regularly with zucchini, bell peppers, and asparagus and serve with potato salad. Or we bake it up in the winter.

  4. Fashionista says:

    Amazing work! I love the way you explain all the things. But I want to know should I grilled it on the electric smoker or not. If I do than for how minutes I have to grill it.
