These juicy and flavorful BBQ chicken foil packets with peppers and onions are the perfect all-in-one meal! Make them up early in the day for dinner or prep a whole bunch of them for your next cookout…


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 4 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Cut four pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil into 16-inch lengths.
  2. Lay a boneless, skinless chicken breast in the center of each piece of foil. Divide the bell peppers and onions into four portions, and sprinkle one portion around each breast.
  3. Brush each chicken breast with your favorite BBQ sauce. Drizzle the veggies with olive oil, and then sprinkle everything with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Pull the short foil edges together and roll them down toward the chicken. Scrunch up the ends tightly to seal each packet.
  5. To grill these packets: Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and place the packets directly on the grill. Close the grill cover and cook for 25 minutes (or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees internally), turning once.
  6. To bake these packets: Place side by side on a baking sheet and bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees until the chicken has cooked through to 165 degrees, about 25 minutes.
  7. Carefully unwrap each packet before serving. Brush each chicken breast with more BBQ sauce, as desired, and season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
