How To Make BBQ Chicken Foil Packets

Create these chicken foil packets if you want a dish that is rich in flavor and wonderfully tender. This recipe only needs 5 ingredients to accomplish.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 10 minutes



  • 8pcschicken drumsticks and thighs,on the bone, skinned
  • 1tspkosher salt
  • ½tspsmoked paprika
  • ½tspgarlic powder
  • 3cupsfrozen mixed vegetables
  • ½cupBBQ sauce,divided
  • fresh parsley,chopped for garnish, optional
  • 4pcsReynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil,(12×18 inches)


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat or the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Cut four large 18×12-inch pieces of foil and layout on a flat surface.

  3. Place 3/4 cup frozen mixed veggies in the center of each piece of foil.

  4. Season chicken with salt, garlic powder, and paprika. Brush both sides of the chicken with ¼ cup of BBQ sauce and place 2 pieces in the middle of each foil packet.

  5. Bring up the long sides of the foil, so the ends meet over the food. Double fold the ends, leaving room for heat to circulate inside.

  6. Double fold the two short ends to seal the packet tight, so no steam escapes.

  7. Place foil packets onto a preheated grill over medium-high heat and grill, covered over indirect heat for 50 to 55 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and chicken reaches an internal temp of 160 degrees F when tested with an instant-read thermometer.

  8. Remove from the grill and carefully open the foil packets. Brush chicken with reserved BBQ sauce and cook uncovered 5 minutes more.

  9. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
