Grilled Chicken Dinner to Die For  

As prepared by Bev Cooks

I don't really want you to die, but this chicken foil packet is gonna have you flirting with it.


Scene:

It's at the end of a work day. Or any day. You're exhausted. Your kids are cranky. Your spouse is crankier. Your limbs are hanging on by a strand of dentil floss. You're starving. Your kids are starving. Your spouse is starving-er. You're this close to eating grout sealer with a swig of polyurethane. Your kids are this close to eating Play-Doh with a swig of Elmer's glue. Your spouse is this close to….well, I don't want to stress you out, but don't look in the dumpster.

Solution:

Foil packets on the grill! Ohhhh, but not just any foil packets, my little birds. This is all about shortcut city, so that you can save the lives of your loved ones before they resort to cannibalism.

Rotisserie chicken, Progresso soup and a couple of veggies and that. is. all. you. need. And love. You do need some love in there too. HEY THE BEATLES DO NOT LIE.

Let's make it!

Grab a rotisserie chicken. Mine was a little under 2 pounds, so depending on your family size, maybe grab 2. Also, you'll need some pre-sliced mushrooms (time saver!) and a bunch of asparagus. AND…get this, a can of Progresso creamy tomato and basil soup. This is going to t.r.a.n.s.f.o.r.m. the meal.

Ingredients for Grilled Chicken Foil Packets

Give the asparagus a quick slice.

And then you divide the chicken into pieces for the foil packets. I chose a thigh and a drumstick for mine. With the skin on. NOM.

Toss some of the mushrooms and asparagus over the chicken.

Then the magicalness part occurs. Spoon a few tablespoons of the soup over the foil packets. Your heart will dance. Toss a little salt and pepper over each packet, fold her up and crimp her up.

I had leftover soup, just fyi. But you can save it for lunch the next day!

Drizzle Progresso Creamy Tomato Basil over Packets

Grill for about 15 to 20 minutes. Since the chicken is already cooked, it will just get moist again (sorry to those who hate that word) from the soup and the veggies will soften oh so perfectly.

When you unfold the packets, it's like a wonderland opens up and your mouth will become a pond of drool.

And you can pick your favorite Progresso soup and switch out the veggies and craft it to the liking of your taste buds. YEAH.
