  • 1 package baby potatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 each red, yellow and green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Chicken marinade

  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat BBQ to med-high heat. Mix together ingredients for chicken and let marinate for 10 min. Meanwhile, toss veggies and potatoes with olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder and seasoning salt.
  • Create four foil packets and add veggies and chicken to each, spooning a bit of marinade over the chicken.
