Foil packet cooking is popular for a number of reasons, with the best one being that everything cooks together in one pouch. Second best reason: There's little to no cleanup. Third best: They're easy to customize with different combinations of veggies and seasonings. Basically, they make you ask: Why aren't we doing this every night?
Because... what about the nights when the weather's not cooperating for grilling? Well, we have a solution for that, too. Set the oven to 375 F and bake the foil packets until the meat reaches a desired temperature and the vegetables are fork tender, about the same amount of time specified in the recipe.
