Treat your family with Mediterranean dinner! Serve tasty grilled chicken and veggies packets with rice.

  • Prep Time 20 min
  • Total Time 45 min
  • Servings 4

Ingredients

1/2
package (4 oz) crumbled basil-and-tomato feta cheese
2
tablespoons grated lemon peel
1
teaspoon dried oregano leaves
4
boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 lb)
4
roma (plum) tomatoes, each cut into 3 slices
1
small red onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
20
pitted Kalamata olives
1/2
cup uncooked rice
1
cup water

Directions

  • 1 Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Cut four 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix cheese, lemon peel and oregano. On one side of each foil piece, place 1 chicken breast half, 3 tomato slices, 1/4 cup onion and 5 olives. Spoon one-fourth of cheese mixture over chicken and vegetables on each foil piece.
  • 3 Fold foil over chicken and vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 4 Cover and grill packets over medium heat 20 to 25 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 10 minutes, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. While packets are being grilled, cook rice in water, according to package directions, omitting salt.
  • 5 Place packets on plates. Cut large X across top of each packet; fold back foil. Serve chicken with rice.
