Camping Recipes BBQ Chicken

Getting ready for a group camping trip is a daunting task.  Everyone usually picks a meal to prepare.  I don't see the fairness in someone making a eggs and bacon or sandwiches, then expecting more than hotdogs and hamburgers for dinner.  Dinners are usually a slab of meat, with full on salad and a side, and what about the vegetarians?  There are only meat alternatives that are offered at every meal!  Anyway, this time around we're each just bringing food for ourselves.  So now my dilemma is making my life easy while a 10 people fight over a tiny grill.   Problem solved!  I am cooking everything in aluminum foil so I can just throw it on the grill and walk away, while someone else uses the grill too. 

To help transport/preserve the food, I'm using chicken that has been vacuum sealed and frozen, as well as chopped the potatoes, onions and garlic, in a vacuum sealed bag as so they don't turn brown until dinner tomorrow. 

Be sure to check next Tuesday's post for the Garlic and Parmesan Potatoes.

Sorry no pictures on this one, it was really dark out by the time the coals heated up and the pics weren't nice.
