Chicken and Summer Squash Packets

These family-favorite grill packets are a great make-ahead meal. They can be assembled the night before and refrigerated. Just add a couple minutes of grill time.

Hands-on Time: 35 min. | Total Time: 35 min. | Serves: 4 | Difficulty: Easy

  • 4 tsp. butter, softened
  • 4 (4-6 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp. all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 small (6”) zucchini, cut in 1” pieces
  • 1 small yellow summer squash, cut in ½” slices
  • 4 (½”) wedges red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Cut four 18”x12” pieces of heavy duty foil. Spread 1 teaspoon of the butter in center of each piece.
  2. Dust each chicken breast lightly with flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in center of foil. Evenly arrange squash and onion around and over chicken.
  3. In small bowl, mix mustard, honey and ginger; spread over chicken. Bring short sides of foil up over chicken and seal, using double fold seals. Seal edges using double fold seals and allowing room for heat expansion.
  4. Place packets on grill seam sides up. Cook 20 -25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and internal temperature reaches 165°F, rotating packets once for more even cooking. Carefully unfold packets to serve; sprinkle with parsley.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers.
