Made this tonight and we loved it! So easy and no cleanup to speak of! I used fresh rosemary, thyme and basil since I have them growing just out the door! Used Carrots since I did not have potatoes and zucchini for the yellow sq. same reason. Lots of Vidalia onion too! Can easily be changed out with whatever you have on hand!
I followed this recipe exactly but unfortunately the only thing that cooked properly was the chicken. The vegetables were rock hard and the seasonings were overpowering. I would have nuked the vegetables to finish them off but we didn't like the strong flavors of the seasonings and after a couple of bites no one wanted to eat any more.
Can be made in oven, at 350 degrees;35-40 min. I used parchment paper first then surround w/foil put in baking pan-this kept the chicken more moist,had some fluids in bottom of paper, which was good as I marinade first-didn't use potatoes, just yellow &red peppers-nxt time I'll add potatoes!
My husband has made similar meals with ground beef, but using chicken would be a great alternative. I will certainly keep this one in mind for the next grill meal.
Girl Scouts have done a version of this for years!
