This was an experiment that turned out wonderfully! I’ve been making tin foil dinners for about forever, but rice never really seemed like it was a viable option since it requires so much water.. even instant rice, but modern day offers a lot of options. So we tried a new experiment.

wonderfully. In preparing this meal I cut up the chicken ahead of time and
tossed it with the oil, salt and pepper in a small ziplock bag before tossing

the other. Place the chicken in the middle along with oil, salt & Pepper.
Toss the chicken to coat. Add rice on top and vegetables. Bring the sides of
the top piece of foil up together and roll downward to create a closed tube.
Roll the side openings up to seal the tube and flip the package over. Repeat
the same folding technique with the other piece of foil and place packet on hot
coals. Cook for 20 minutes or so turning and flipping the package regularly. Remove
from heat and allow the package to cool for a minute before opening. If you
open the package and the chicken is not thoroughly cooked refold the package
and return it to hot coals until the chicken is fully cooked. (Serves 1)
