Ingredients

6
oz. extra-lean reduced-sodium cooked ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (1 cup)
2
large carrots, thinly sliced (1 cup)
1
medium green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1
(8-oz.) can pineapple slices, drained
1/4
cup purchased sweet-and-sour sauce
1
cup uncooked instant white rice
1
cup water
  • 1 Heat grill. Cut two 20x18-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil. Fold each in half to form 18x10-inch rectangle.
  • 2 Place half of ham, carrots, bell pepper and pineapple onto each piece of foil. Drizzle 2 tablespoons sweet-and-sour sauce over ham and vegetables. Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
  • 3 When ready to grill, place packets on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 12 minutes or until vegetables are tender and ham is thoroughly heated, turning packets over once.
  • 4 Meanwhile, cook rice in water as directed on package, omitting margarine or salt. To serve, open packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Serve ham mixture over rice.
