Basil Chicken Packets

Basil Chicken Packets
  • 4 chicken breasts - I use boneless skinless
  • Heavy duty aluminum foil - 4 sheets approx. 12x18"
  • 2 T. chopped parsley
  • 2 t. grated lemon peel - I use fresh lemon zest
  • 2 t. dry basil leaves - I use fresh chopped basil
  • 1/2 t. each salt and pepper
  • 2 medium yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 medium red pepper, cut in rings
Center 1 chicken breast on each foil sheet. Mix parsley, lemon peel, basil, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle over chicken. Top with squash and red peppers.
Bring up sides of foil to make a packet.  Leave room for heat to circulate inside.
Place packets on grill over medium hot coals. Grill for 11-13 minutes or until chicken is cooked and vegetables are tender.
