EDR Campfire Chicken Packets
1 chicken breast + 1/2 cup bean mixture
15 Min

Whether you're at a barbecue, camping out, or just having a fun camp-style dinner at home, you're going to love these Campfire Chicken Packets. We stuffed foil packets with chicken, beans, corn, tomato, and a sprinkle of cheese, so you can enjoy a flavorful meal without any mess!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (15-ounce) can great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat, shredded, Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 scallion, sliced

What to Do

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine beans, tomato, corn, cumin, and chili powder; mix well. Place each chicken on a piece of foil, about 16- x 12-inches, and evenly divide bean mixture on top of chicken. Loosely fold foil over chicken and seal edges.
  3. Place foil packets on grill and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until no longer pink in center.
  4. Carefully open packets and sprinkle with cheese and scallion. Serve immediately.


Don't have a grill, it's raining, or just prefer to make these in your oven? No problem! Just bake them at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.

Like fast recipes and have many packs like this and will make it...

Sounds good but do you rinse and drain the beans before using?

Yes, thanks for catching that! We've added that instruction to the recipe. Enjoy!
