Look how perfectly cooked the potatoes, corn, onion and zucchini is and the chicken is so succulent!

Friends, I could not wait to share this easy, finger licking good recipe with you. Can you believe that you put the marinated chicken and veggies in a foil pack on the grill and you actually get to sit back and relax while your meal cooks itself? Unbelievable, isn’t it?

For me, opening the pack full of tender moist chicken, perfectly cooked potatoes and tender crisp veggies was like opening a gift! After enjoying the dinner the gift keeps on giving as there is almost no clean up involved.

This is definitely my ‘go to’ dinner this summer.

I let the boneless skinless chicken thighs marinate overnight in the refrigerator. I used my home made green chutney with fresh cilantro and mint. I have so much mint in the garden now and was excited to use it! But you could easily substitute store bought cilantro-mint chutney.

For veggies, I used zucchini and red onion, corn on the cob and baby potatoes in various colors. But you could add whatever fresh summer veggies you find and like.

Make sure you have 2 foil squares stacked so the package is sturdy. I added about 1½ teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil to each pack and topped it with the chicken and veggies. Sprinkle a little kosher salt, garam masala powder and paprika (optional), and close the foil packs!

Ingredients-

For the marinade-

  • ½ cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of green chutney, store bought or homemade. I used a palm full of cilantro leaves, ½ inch fresh ginger, a clove of garlic, 1 green Thai chili pepper, 8~10 fresh mint leaves, juice of ½ lime and salt for my homemade chutney.
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 palm sized pieces of skinless, boneless chicken thighs, about ¾ pounds

For the foil packs-

  • 4 squares of aluminum foil, large enough the enclose the chicken and veggies
  • 3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ear of Corn, 1 zucchini and 1 red onion cut in about 2 inch pieces
  • 6 baby potatoes- I used yellow, red and purple baby potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • Kosher salt to taste

To make the Grilled Chutney Chicken and Veggies in Foil Pack-

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the marinade and add the chicken to it. Toss well to coat. Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours or overnight.
  2. To assemble each foil pack, stack two squares of the aluminum foil. Drizzle 1½ teaspoons of the extra virgin olive oil. Place one piece of the marinated chicken with the marinade. Add ½ of the corn, zucchini, onion and potatoes. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of the garam masala and ¼ teaspoon of the paprika, if using. Sprinkle some kosher salt and close the foil packs shut. Repeat with the other foil pack.
  3. On a preheated 400~ 450 degree Fahrenheit grill, lay the foil packs and let it cook at about 400 degrees Fahrenheit, with the grill cover closed, for about 25 minutes or until the chicken and veggies are cooked .
  4. Serve the foil packs of Grilled Chutney Chicken and Veggies!

    YUM….and getting to eat outdoors is a bonus. I haven’t been able to find those purple potatoes but have been wanting to try them. Do they taste different or is it just the color?

      Yes I love grilled food an deating outdoors! I found the potatoes at a local supermarket. They came mixed in a 2 pound bag. The purple ones I feel taste a tad like yams.

    Brilliant Sandhya, love, love, love this dish. Your presentation at the end just blew me away. Love how you added the serene scenery around and that glass of beer 🙂 I make a green masala too, so perhaps that would be a good way to start with the marination. I see you used chicken thighs and grilled it on a high heat. I’ll bet it was more than finger lickin’ good. Love those purple potatoes and onions too. If I could eat with my eyes, this would be a winner! Enjoy your weekend 🙂

      Thank you so much Loretta! Yes the green masala would be so good. I really am hooked on this now- the chicken and veggies all cooking together in that foil pack lend such a yummy flavor. I love grilled food.I took the photos when my husband and I were having dinner in the backyard. He was getting impatient having to wait while I took pictures:) Btw, the drink was a cantaloupe ginger mocktail I made to finish up the cantaloupe pieces I had 🙂
      Have a great weekend ! Loving your posts. It looks like you have come back refreshed and ready to take on the blogging with full gusto! Good for you!
