The minute it starts to warm up, my boys start asking to have fires in the fire pit. Sometimes we have fires just for fun but most of the time we also cook dinner over the fire. Their favorite meal is tin foil dinners!
I grabbed our Electrolight fire starter from HomeRight (they are giving one away today!) and got going on starting the fire!
Sometimes we use hamburger patties, potatoes, and carrots but my favorite kind of tin foil dinner is BBQ chicken. I make tin foil “dishes” and put in a chicken breast covered on BBQ sauce. Then I add red & green peppers, onions, and pineapple. Basically it is how I make my favorite kind of kabobs but they are not on a skewer.
I cover then with another layer of tin foil and they are ready to go!
They cook best when the fire has died down some and there are mainly hot coals. Once they were on the coals, I got some bread dough and wrapped them around the roasting sticks. Thinner is better so they don’t end up doughy in the middle. You also need to have them cook slowly for the same reason.
They take longer to cook than a marshmallow so my youngest got board and I cooked his. They turned out pretty good!
Depending on the thickness of your meat, the tin foil dinners should be ready in 20-30 minutes. I take off the outer layer of foil and eat them right out of the foil “dish”.
Do you cook dinner over the fire? What are your favorite campfire meals? I would love some new ideas of things to try!
