Serves: 6
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 20-30 minutes


  • 6 chicken thighs, skin on
  • 6 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • Olive oil
  • Montreal Chicken Seasoning
  • 1 package baby carrots, sliced in half lengthwise
  • ⅓ pound fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 6 small/medium Yukon gold potatoes cut into small cubes
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • Salt to taste


  1. Prepare grill or campfire to medium-high heat, about 375-400 degrees.
  2. Cut out 12 large sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil.
  3. Scatter carrots, green beans and sliced potatoes onto 6 of the foil sheets, and season with salt/pepper or your favorite vegetable seasoning.
  4. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towels, rub with olive oil and Montreal Chicken Seasoning and place in the middle of vegetables. Lay a slice or two of lemon on top of the chicken and scatter shallot on top.
  5. Fold foil into packets. Lay each packet seam-side down onto the second sheet of foil and fold again. This will help prevent leakage.
  6. Cook chicken packets on preheated grill grates for 20-30 minutes, flipping packets halfway through. The internal temperature of the chicken should be 165 degrees when fully cooked. Be careful when opening the packets – hot steam will escape.
