Basil, garlic, pepperoni and mozzarella give plenty of pizza flavor to chicken, green pepper, zucchini and cherry tomatoes in these individual foil dinners. This speedy grilled supper is a tasty way to get little ones to eat their veggies. —Amber Zurbrugg Alliance, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2013

"This was a delicious meal and really nice to cook outside and not heat the house up. I agree with penney00 that the packets were watery, but they were also very good. I added some more chicken but kept all the other amounts of ingredients the same and split it among 5 people. We will be making this again!!!!!"

"It was ok. The packets were very watery when done. Seemed to lack something, maybe marinade the chicken."
