Sweet & Sour Chicken Packs #BBQ #LMDConnector

With soccer in full swing (four nights a week for us with both kids) and the heat wave we had last week it is really nice to have something quick and easy for dinner but also healthy and tasty. I love things that can be prepped for the most part ahead of time and then slow cooked, BBQ or thrown in the oven.

I headed over to the Life Made Delicious website to see what I could throw on the BBQ and what I found was quick easy and yummy! Sweet and Sour Chicken Packs can be prepped mostly ahead of time. I chopped up the peppers and onions and made the sauce in the morning and put the packs together right before putting them on the grill.

If you are like me and sometimes don't have different sauces on hand you can quickly make a sweet and sour sauce with only 4 ingredients. My recipe is more of a mix and taste kind of recipe depending on how sweet or sour you like it or how much you will need for your recipe.

Homemade Sweet & Sour sauce

White Vinegar
Brown Sugar
Soya Sauce

I usually start out with ketchup then add about a tablespoon or two of soya sauce and white vinegar. I then add a couple tablespoons of brown sugar and keep adding either sugar or vinegar to adjust to the taste I am looking for.

Sweet & Sour Chicken Packs

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb/625 g)
1/2 cup (125 mL) sweet-and-sour sauce
1 can (398 mL) pineapple chunks, drained
1 medium bell pepper, cut into strips
1/4 small onion, cut into small wedges
1/2 cup (125 mL) chow mein noodles, if desired

  • Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut four 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray.
  • 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. If you like a saucy chicken add more sauce.
  • 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.
  • 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 (170ºF). Place packets on plates.
