Stuffed Chicken Grill Packets
More recipes for the Fourth seems to be the theme this week as everyone is gearing up and getting ready! Today is a gloomy day with rain and the forecast for the next 10 days seems to hold high chances for more rain which includes Independence Day and don’t know how many people will be able to cook out, at least not in our neck of the woods! Two days ago was the 1 year anniversary of Debbie, and I’m sure a lot of people around here are keeping a sharp eye on this rainy forecast we have in store, praying we don’t see Debbie’s sister or brother rearing their ugly head. With that said, this recipe can also be cooked in the oven if push comes to shove. If forced to cook inside, bake in a 350 degree oven for about the same amount of time and test chicken for doneness as in the recipe. I thought that this might be a nice alternative of cooking on the grill in case you’re not into the traditional versions of barbequing with sauces and such.
- Heavy duty aluminum foil
- 1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed as dry as possible
- 1 cup seasoned stuffing mix (I use plain dried bread cubes and season to taste)
- 1 can (7-1/2 oz) ready to serve cream of celery soup
- ¾ cup grated Swiss cheese
- 2 teas minced sweet onion
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Salt and paprika to taste
- Cut 6 pieces of the foil, large enough to place a single chicken breast with stuffing, and enough left over to cover chicken and seal well, forming a packet.
- Combine the spinach, stuffing, soup, cheese and onion and mix well.
- Divide the stuffing equally onto each of the pieces of foil (about ½ cup each).
- Top with a chicken breast, tucking the chicken around the stuffing; season with salt and paprika.
- Bring the foil up and around the chicken and seal tightly.
- Have charcoal ready for cooking and cook chicken over medium-hot coals about 40 minutes or until chicken is tender and juices run clear; turn chicken half-way through the cooking time.
Hope you can cook out for the big day………….enjoy!
