I love the idea of taking this as a camping meal. Anyone see an issue with making this ahead of time at home including stuffing the pouches? Seems clean up would be easier since it involves chicken. Also any thoughts on switching the meat to beef and a different flavoring? It would have about the same cooking time, right? I can't wait to try this!

I made this recipe. It turned out great. My husband is a very picky eater and he loved it. Will make it again and again!

I make this in a skillet on the stove. I make a little more sauce and serve it over wild or brown rice. Its a hit with all of us. That sauce would be good on anything, just the right sweet/spice/savory combo.

Contrary to bkjean, with reasonable heat, you WILL get sear marks on the contents if they are in direct contact with the foil and over the fire.
Since the Foil is usually wrinkled, it can look like grill marks.

The only way to get "grill marks" as shown in the picture of this recipe is if you actually seared the chicken and veggies on a hot grill BEFORE putting them into the foil packet.

I use pineapple tidbits (drained without the juice) rather than chunks.

Our family loves this recipe. We grill this at least once a month, and it is a favorite when camping too.

The photo of this recipe looks great, with a browned and roasted look to the chicken pieces and pineapple. In reality, when I opened the cooked foil packets, there was no roasted look to the food. The chicken looked so pale, and the fresh pineapple had watery juice that contributed to this combination that was cooked, but not especially flavorful or appetizing.
After chopping up all the ingredients, better results could have been achieved with a stir fry in a saute pan, adding a little cornstarch to thicken the pineapple juice, and caramalize the food.
I would not use this recipe again.
