Cajun Style Grill Foil Packets

Simple Dinner Idea ~Cajun-Style Grill Foil Packets

cajun-foil-packet-grill

Easy recipe for a tasty, no fuss dinner that can be put together quickly and made to your taste. In this recipe, you can use chicken, sausage or shrimp. There is NO MESS and the best part is, easy clean up. You can prepare the packets ahead of time. Pre heat your oven to 400-degrees. Place each packet on a cookie sheet and bake as you would on the grill. Another great thing about these foil packets is that each person can make and customize their own, which makes EVERYONE happy. No one picking through the contents and turning up their nose because a shrimp touched their potatoes… etc..

INGREDIENTS:

• 8-12 pieces of corn on the cob (4 full cobs cut in half or in thirds)
• 4 red potatoes, washed and cubed
• 20-30 uncooked shrimp (peeled or not, it’s up to you)
• 1 Lb. smoked sausage, cut into chunks
• melted butter (or olive oil), to taste
• 1/2 c. chicken broth (you may not need that much)
• Cajun/Creole seasoning (we like to use Tony Chachere’s brand), to taste
• salt and pepper, to taste

METHOD:

• (makes 4 grill packets)
• Heat grill to 400-degrees (you can do this in your oven, too, at the same temp.).
• Evenly distribute corn, potatoes, shrimp, and sausage between 4 heavy-duty foil sheets (appx 12×18 inches each).
• Drizzle melted butter and about 2 Tbsp. chicken broth over each foil packet.
• Season evenly (and generously), to taste with Cajun seasoning and salt and pepper.
• Tightly seal foil packets by folding up the sides over the contents and tightly folding up the ends over the seam.
• Bake or Grill 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender, flipping once half-way through (be careful opening the packets to check for doneness, the steam inside is VERY hot)!
