Our new favorite dinner recipe!

I read Darby's blog at almost on a daily basis. She is just such a fun writer and her kids are adorable. We have a lot in common, so of course it's easy to think we'd get along in real life. Anyway, Todd and I are both not big on veggies. We try to like them, we try to get them into our meals each day, but it's a struggle for us. We're cheeseburger and fry people at heart!

Zuchinni and yellow squash are one of our favorites though. We always threw together these chicken packets when we knew we wouln't have time to cook or didn't want to deal with the dishes to clean after dinner. Then we'd just serve it with a side salad, some crusty bread, or sometimes some roasted asparagus, another favorite of ours.

But I saw the recipe for chicken delight on her post. I had everything on hand, so I thought I'd give it a try. We ended up LOVING it and it's so easy. Just tear a couple square pieces of foil, lay on chicken, season with seasoning salt, top with sliced zuchinni and squash. Then top with marinara and some parmesean and mozerella cheese. Then fold up the foil packet leaving room for the cheese to melt and toss on the grill for 25-30 min.
For an easy side, I just tore off an extra square of foil, sliced up on of those 99 cent loaves of french bread from Kroger (on sale for $.68), top each slice with butter and a little garlic salt and toss on the grill for the last 8-10 minutes.
This recipe was soooo good......I didn't even get pictures of the final product. They smelled so good that everyone just dug right in! Maybe next time....
