  • 1

    Stir together all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Lay out a piece of foil and fold edges up to make a bowl. Pour ingredients onto foil.

  • 2

    Use a second piece of foil to cover the packet. Be sure to pinch the edges closed so it seals well.

  • 3

    Grill the foil packet over medium direct heat for 8-10 minutes per side.

  • 4

    Open foil packet carefully as steam will escape. Serve while warm!

Expert Tips

  • Use heavy-duty aluminum foil to reduce chance of tearing in foil. You can also double up the foil layers to make a sturdier packet.
