Summer is still in full swing and don’t you love the ease of grilling foods? Foil packs are a wonderful way to enjoy the BBQ and with very little clean up at all. They are perfect for camping or even a picnic when you have a BBQ. They can be made ahead of time and waiting for you when you want them. Using Little Potato Company’s Creamer potatoes makes these Grilled Spiced Chicken Potato Foil Packs even easier. They come pre-washed so all that is needed is to slice the larger ones in half and you are ready to go. For this recipe we used their Blushing Belles!
With lots of spices the chicken and potatoes are delicious. I also added in red pepper for a splash of color and flavor and bacon for that over the top taste making these foil packs irresistibly good.
Just pile your ingredients after a quick toss in oil and spices and then top with red peppers and bacon. It is this simple but the results are nothing short of magnificent! I love using ancho chili powder as a spice as it is not hot but adds great flavor and color!
Once done you can eat them right out of the foil packs so this saves you dishes too. A plate underneath is a nice support too though but it won’t get real dirty. A paper plate would work well also.
Look at those luscious little potatoes. They cook up perfectly in these packs on the BBQ. This recipe and many others would be fantastic with any of the Little Potato Company’s varietals. Like Baby Boomers, Blushing Belles, Little Charmers, Fingerlings, Something Blue, Dynamic Duo, Terrific Trio or Chilean Splash. Each one having their own wonderful plate appeal. Also, giving you a blast of 19% potassium per serving!
