Mexican Chicken Foil Packets

Since everything tastes better when cooked over a camp fire, I'm not promising these will be as good grilled at home - but they sure were a delicious dinner while camping! I'd never done foil packets over a fire before, so I kinda just went for it and we all agreed the result was worthy of repeating. The filling options for a packet dinner are endless. . . . this is what I used . . .

Start with a large square of heavy duty aluminum foil. Spray center with cooking spray.
Layer the following in the center of the square:
2-3 slices green bell pepper
1 skinless, boneless chicken thigh
sprinkle chili powder and Penzys Sunny Spain on chicken
2-3 spoonfuls canned black beans, drained
2-3 spoonfuls canned corn, drained
top with grated cheese

Fold up two sides of the foil and pinch together, leaving some room inside the packet for steam to move around. Fold up remaining two sides to close off packet securely.

Repeat steps to make as many packets as you want.

Place packets on grate over fire and cook for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Move the packets around every 7-10 minutes to ensure even cooking.

Open packets carefully, dump on plate over rice, chips or a tortilla, and top with salsa.
