    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    4 tbsp. barbeque sauce, divided
    4 small boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 pound)
    2 small unpeeled red potatoes, thinly sliced, divided
    1 red or green bell pepper, seeded and sliced, divided
    1 green onion, finely chopped, divided
    Salt and black pepper, to taste
    1 ½ c. shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided


    1. Place a foil sheet, approximately 12-by-12-inches, on a work surface. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
    2. Spoon about 1-1/2 tablespoons barbecue sauce in the center of the foil sheet. Place one chicken breast half over barbecue sauce, and spread another 1-1/2 tablespoons of sauce over chicken. Top with a quarter of the potato, bell pepper and onion. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. Fold foil in half to cover contents; make narrow folds along edges to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients to assemble 3 more packets. Place packets on grill or over campfire for 30 to 35 minutes.
    4. Open foil packets with scissors and carefully pull back edges (contents may be very hot). Sprinkle a quarter of the cheese over the top of each chicken breast half and return to grill or campfire, unsealed, for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
