Hobo dinners are the easiest thing in life. And no clean up. That's impressive.
You've probably made them before, or maybe you have forgotten about them so here I am bringing them to the front of your brains.
The best thing about these is you can change them up to utilize whatever ingredients you have on hand.
I happened to have carrots, frozen chicken tenders and red potatoes.
I layer the dinners according to which ingredients cook the slowest. So potatoes, then carrots and then the chicken. Like so:
First though, I spray the foil with some oil so the food doesn't stick to it when it cooks.
After layering I sprinkle on some:
and slice some butter on top. Mmm...butter.
Double wrap your dinners.
After swaddling those babies I fire up the grill. (or oven if you prefer) Then I shut the lid and forget about them. No seriously, tonight I forgot about them. Good thing my propane ran out and my little children (not the human ones) just sat there and steamed until I came to my senses. But ideally you want to take them off when the carrots and potatoes are tender. Check them after fifteen minutes or so.
I didn't take a picture after they were cooked. I guess we were hungry. But they were gooood. And you can use any spices you want. Did I mention there is no clean up? Awe.some. Hubby likes to eat them with BBQ sauce but I can't stand BBQ sauce so I eat them as is. So there.
