Foil Packet Chicken with Peas and Carrots

While you can still get your hands on some fresh snow peas and carrots, you must try this recipe. It is one of the most delectable dinners I’ve had in a while.

The ingredients are super simple: chicken, peas, carrots, hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger. But the combination is out of this world. I loved the simplicity of this meal and how quickly and easily it came together.

The chicken, after steaming in the oven, is tender as can be and the subtle taste of garlic and ginger is all this dish needs to be flavorfully perfect.

My kids thought it was ultra-cool that they each got their own foil packet for dinner and they ate everything right up. Apparently, peas taste better baked in foil.

I will definitely be making this meal again while fresh produce is in season! My husband called this a “Gourmet Tin Foil Dinner.” Good thing he didn’t know how easy it was to throw together. He just may get this for his next campout!
