Tin Foil Dinners

I do not have fond memories of tin foil dinners from when I was a girl.  When we made them when I was a Guide the chicken was either so raw I’m surprised we didn’t all come down with food poisoning or the whole meal was so burnt that everything tasted like tin foil.  I recently returned to the idea of foil dinners but now I use pre-cooked protein for much better results.

Ingredients:

  • pre-cooked protein such as chicken breast, sausage or vegetarian patty
  • white and/or sweet potatoes
  • vegetables such as corn, carrots, zucchini, onions, celery etc.
  • butter or vegetable oil
  • heavy duty tin foil

Instructions:

  1. Clean and chop the potatoes and vegetables.  You want to make sure all the pieces are a pretty consistent size and not too thick or large.
  2. Mean while, build a fire and form a bed of hot coals
  3. Give each girl a piece of foil and let her build her own dinner.  This way everyone ends up with what they like.
  4. Wrap the dinner like a package with the shinny side of the foil on the inside.
  5. Wrap in a second layer of foil to ensure all the good stuff stays inside the package
  6. Lay on coals to cook, turning occasionally.
  7. Cook for approximately 20 min, open and enjoy
