How about a dinner idea with minimal clean-up? Look no further than this full of flavor Foil Packet Pineapple Coconut Chicken with sweet potatoes, red onion and bell peppers that can be prepared in either the oven or grill.
Why hello there, grilling season! You sure have been missed around here – especially by the husband. Did I mention he’s become obsessed with Barbecue Pitmasters on television? (Truth they have television shows about absolutely everything.) After Kellyn was born, we watched a marathon of episodes and he’s decided if this whole medicine gig doesn’t work out, he’s going to go on the competitive barbecue circuit… Aye, aye, aye.
But I digress. Sundays in our house always mean grilling for dinner as long as Andy’s call schedule cooperates. That usually means that he’s then in charge of dinner but on occasion, I dream up something and then give it to him to actually cook. This is where I admit that I hate to smell like smoke, thus I make my husband cook my creations. This Foil Packet Pineapple Coconut Chicken is awesome in that it can be cooked on the grill but also can be cooked in the oven in case of inclement weather. Or you know, in case my husband has gotten paged and is not available to cook my dinner for me.
This dinner couldn’t be easier and is absolutely packed with flavor. All of my children gladly gobbled up their portions, as did Andy and I. Sweet potatoes, red onion and bell peppers are kicked up a notch thanks to the absolutely amazing Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Sauce from my friends at Robert Rothschild Farm. A little sweet, a little heat and absolutely perfect. I found myself dipping a few extra pepper slices in this awesome sauce while I waited for dinner to cook. Yes, it’s that good. Everything is then wrapped in an aluminum foil packet and then baked or grilled. Done and done. The fact that there are minimal dishes to wash after this meal is just icing on the cake.
I garnished my plate with additional sauce and flakes of unsweetened coconut. You could also use sweetened coconut if you already have it on hand. This Foil Packet Pineapple Coconut Chicken is sure to be on our menu often during grilling season!
