Grilled Sweet and Sour Chicken Foil Packs.

Opening up a grill packet is a sweet surprise! Chicken breasts go sweet and sour in a hurry.


Grilled Sweet and Sour Chicken Foil Packs


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
  • 1/2 cup sweet-and-sour sauce
  • 1 can (8 oz) pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 medium bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/4 small onion, cut into small wedges
  • 1/2 cup chow mein noodles, if desired


  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut four 18×12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray.
  2. On one side of each foil piece, place 1 chicken breast. Top each with 1 tablespoon sweet-and-sour sauce and one-fourth of the pineapple, bell pepper and onion. Top with remaining sauce.
  3. Fold foil over chicken and vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for heat expansion.
  4. When grill is heated, place packets on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 10 minutes, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170Β°F). Place packets on plates. Cut large X across top of each packet; fold back foil. Top with chow mein noodles.
