Potatoes (I prefer red, but any will do)
Step 1: Prepare Ingredients
Cut up potatoes, onion, chicken, and butter. I am a big eater, so I normally use a couple boneless skinless chicken thighs or a large chicken breast, 3 medium sized red potatoes, and 1 small onion. You can adjust the proportions according to the appetite of those you are cooking for. I normally use 2-3 tablespoons of butter.
Step 2: Aluminum Foil
Cut 2 pieces of aluminum foil about 18" long. Lay them on top of each other. Add about a tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle some garlic salt and pepper onto the foil. You may also sprinkle on any of you other favorite spices (I like to add lemon pepper sometimes). Don't add too much as you will be adding more in the next step. Repeat for as many portions as you want to make.
Step 3: Mix Ingredients
Take chicken, potatoes, onions, and butter and mix them together on the foil. Add 1-2 more tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle more garlic salt and pepper (and other spices if desired) over the cut up ingredients. Repeat if making additional portions.
Step 4: Package it Up
Pull the two long sides of the aluminum foil together like a hot dog. Starting at the top fold the foil over again and again until tight in small (3-4 mm) increments to seal the contents inside. Do the same thing on the two ends but with larger folds (1 cm). Repeat if making additional portions.
