In the summer, sometimes you just need an incredibly delicious meal fast so that you can get out and enjoy the sunshine rather than slaving away in the kitchen. This grilled barbecue chicken and vegetables in foil recipe is a healthy dinner that requires minimal chopping and takes less than thirty minutes to cook. This chicken recipe is also cooked on a grill rather than in the oven, which means you can be outside enjoying a cold beverage while your dinner cooks itself. If you adore perfect, juicy chicken breast and roasted summer veggies, this barbecue chicken recipe should be added to your meal roster.

Quick and easy meals are a benefit when you are limited for time in the evening or want to spend time doing other things. By wrapping chicken and vegetables in foil, they will be protected from the flames and smoke of the grill and are relatively low maintenance as a result. Traditionally grilled chicken recipes have been a problem because they stick to the grill and become charred, but in the case of this grilled chicken with zucchini and peppers recipe, there won’t be that problem. As far as easy chicken breast recipes go, this chicken and vegetable recipe are one of the easiest, because there is a minuscule amount of chopping. After that, you just have to assemble the bundles for the grill. Just be sure to check the chicken continuously with a thermometer until it reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit; the timing will vary depending on the size of the chicken breasts you are using. If you don’t have a barbecue to complete this barbecue chicken breast recipe, don’t worry, because you can prepare this in your oven instead. Katerina, the author of ‘Diethood’ recipe blog, gives alternative instructions, which involves baking the foil packages at a high 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for a similar amount of time. This temperature would be equivalent to what a grill at medium heat would be. The main benefit to cooking this easy chicken recipe on the grill versus the oven is that you won’t heat up your kitchen and can spend the evening outdoors. Otherwise, both methods for producing this delicious chicken and vegetable recipe work just as well as the other.

Many people love healthy chicken breast recipes when they are trying to eat nutritiously and watch their weight. Healthy baked chicken breast includes much more meat than chicken legs do and has much less fat. If you prefer dark meat to chicken breast, however, you could substitute with chicken drumsticks, thighs, or the entire leg in this simple chicken recipe. Just make sure to adjust the roasting time accordingly, since they are likely to require more cook time to reach a safe temperature. Serve this chicken and veggie recipe as is or alongside baked potatoes or steamed rice.
