Hobo Chicken – All in One Kind of Meal

We are big lovers of this recipe, everything is cooked together in tin foil, all the flavors mingling, tastes amazing. It has taken a bit of time to figure out just how much to make, because, my kids really like it, I really like it, and I like to have leftovers for lunch the next day.

You can cook these in the oven, or toss them on the BBQ. This makes it perfect for the whole year. I personally prefer them on the BBQ, they get an extra smoky flavor that the oven just can’t beat.

  • 4 Chicken breasts – cut into bite size pieces
  • 5 carrots – diced
  • 5 potatoes – diced
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits
  • 1 large onion – diced
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to make this Hobo Chicken meal:

Dice your veggies – potatoes, carrots, onions. Minced garlic – a lot. Dice your chicken. Try to cut things evenly, so that everything cooks evenly.

Lay out your tin foil. We cook about two servings in each piece of tin foil to give you an idea of how much is in each packet. Use a little butter to cover the bottom of the tin foil to prevent sticking.

Add in all the veggies, the chicken, garlic, and some salt and pepper to taste. Top with some real bacon bits.
