Pack it Up! Pack it In! 15 Foil Meals for the Grill

When it’s nice outside, no one has the time to be doing dishes. Enter our brilliant collection of foil-pack meals filled with everything from teriyaki chicken and vegetables to Cajun pork chops with red beans and rice—no cleanup required! MORE+ LESS-

It’s summertime and the living is easy. Or at least it should be. These foil pack recipes can help with that! All that’s required is a tiny bit of prep work (your usual slicing and dicing), and some quick tin foil folding. The final step is to pop your packs on the grill—or in the oven—and pour yourself something delicious while you wait for dinner to make itself.

Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetable Foil Packs
Chicken, peppers, carrots, green onions and rice, your protein, vegetables and starch are all here, in one convenient parcel. Talk about having it all! And when you add a homemade teriyaki sauce to the mix? Unreal! But like for real, it’s so good.


Chicken Cordon Bleu Foil Packs
These are for the occasions when you want to seem fancy and like you’ve got it all together, but really you’d rather take a nap. It’s amazing what multicolored fingerling potatoes do for the wow factor. They’re so impressive (but secretly as easy as regular potatoes) that you totally have time for that snooze.


Sake Lime Shrimp and Edamame Foil Packs
We’re willing to bet you’ve never had a dinner on the grill like this before! The foil packs create a perfect environment for steaming the shrimp so it comes out perfectly juicy every time. And yes, there’s enough sake leftover to enjoy with your meal.


Cheesy Potatoes and Ham Foil Packs
Ham and cheese is one of those simple pleasures in life that you sometimes forget about until you have it—and then you end up asking yourself why you don’t have it more often. Which we’re certain will be the case with these packs.


Cajun Pork Chop, Red Beans and Rice Foil Packs
We took a page out of the Louisiana dinnertime staples playbook for this one. And while the recipe only calls for 1 teaspoon of hot sauce, we’d never discourage you from turning up the heat on this classic pork chop, red beans and rice combo.


Lemon-Herb Salmon Foil Packs
Fish on the grill is difficult. Fish in foil packs could not be easier. So thanks, no thanks, cedar planks. This is a job for aluminum foil. The steam trapped inside means your salmon is a perfect 10 (if not an 11) at a fraction of the price. Win, win!


Spanish Romesco Chicken and Rice Foil Packs
Warning: once you get a taste of this romesco sauce made from roasted red peppers and smoked paprika, you’re going to want to put it on everything. And we support that, wholeheartedly.


Indian Chicken Foil Packs
Lentils in a foil pack? Oh heck yes. We cracked the code on how to make it happen and then took it in an Indian direction with garam masala, sweet-tart tomatoes and cool yogurt. This chicken foil pack dinner is anything but boring.


Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Foil Packs
And the award for the prettiest-ever grilled dinner goes to these prosciutto-wrapped chicken foil packs. With pesto and mozzarella rolled inside, prosciutto on the outside and the addition of marinated artichoke hearts, grape tomatoes and fresh basil, it’s as delicious as it is gorgeous.


Tex-Mex Foil Pack
Black beans, sweet corn, and queso fresco with some jalapeno for a hit of spice make these Tex-Mex Foil Packs a summer staple. Whether you look at it as a side or a whole meal, we can guarantee there’s zero chance for disappointment.


Spicy Meatball Foil Packs
Arrabbiata! It’s super fun to say and it’s the name of the spicy, angry sauce (arrabbiata literally means angry in Italian) in these meatball foil packs. As for the meatballs, each of has a fresh ball of mozzarella at its core. Angry, spicy and cheesy, now that’s a dinner worth experiencing.


Sweet Potato and Bacon Foil Packs
Sweet potatoes don’t get invited to cookouts or backyard barbeques nearly enough. These crazy-easy foil packs are about to change that. They pair like a dream with chicken, pork and beef, and if you’re a non meat-eater, they make a solid entrée (just skip the bacon!).


Chili Cheeseburger and Fries Foil Packs
No buns? No problem! These lower-carb chili cheeseburger foil packs have no need for them anyway. But there’s definitely room for (and some would argue, a need for) French fries. We say, you do you.


Coconut Curried Mussels Foil Packs
Here’s a grilling hack that’ll impress everyone you know. Because making mussels at home is fancy, but making mussels on the grill? That’s mind blowing! Also mind blowing is how simple it is. Foil packs, you’re magic!


Grilled Chocolate Banana Foil Pack
No, we’re not drooling; you’re drooling. Obviously we had to end this collection in the same way we like to end our dinner, with dessert. When bananas get the s’mores treatment, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been doing it all along.
