Tomorrow we are having Lemon Pepper Chicken Packets for dinner. You can use whatever veggies you prefer. You can also buy a Lemon Pepper Marinade or make your own (the recipe is below). This recipe is great for camping!
Lemon Pepper Chicken Packet
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 1/2 to 2 pounds)
2 medium zucchini, cut in 3-inch strips
2 medium yellow squash, cut in 3 inch strips
1 medium green bell pepper, cut in thin strips
1/2 cup Lemon Pepper Marinade
1 T flour
2 to 3 tsp lemon pepper
salt to taste
1 jar (7 oz) roasted red peppers, chopped
Preheat Grill. Layout six large pieces of aluminum foil. Lay 1/6 zucchini, squash and bell peppers evenly on each sheet of foil. Combine lemon pepper marinade with flour and pour over vegetables.
Place 1/6 chicken on top of each packet and sprinkle with lemon pepper and salt. Top with 1/6 of the roasted peppers. Seal packets and place on grill over medium high heat. Grill for about 15 to 20 minutes turning once during cooking. Remove cooked packets from grill and carefully open to let the steam out. Serve either in the packets or on plates.
LEMON PEPPER MARINADE
This light and easy marinade uses the power of lemon juice to help tenderize and flavor meats. This marinade is particularly good on poultry.
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 T light cooking oil
1/2 tsp black peppercorns, cracked
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp fresh dill
1/2 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Makes 1/2 cup.
