    It is a strange time of year. The temperature says “summer and time to fire up the grill,” but your schedule says “back to school and fall.” To tackle both of the temperature and the schedule, look no further. It is the best of both worlds; a simple meal, made on the grill.

    Make sure you PIN this BBQ Chicken Hobo Dinner!

    This BBQ Chicken Hobo Dinner has minimal prep time. With only a few chops of onion and sweet potato and clean up that is relatively nonexistent (you only need to throw away the aluminum foil,) it leaves you free to get all your other things done.

    Since BBQ Chicken Hobo Dinner doesn’t require much oversight or tending-to once the packets are on the grill, you can make them well into chilly weather. Pop them on the grill and head back inside to keep warm.

    What is a hobo dinner? I know, it’s an odd term to use in a recipe since hobo is technically a migrant worker who often is without a permanent home.

    That said, a hobo dinner is named as such because it is a meal that can be cooked easily, anywhere, and be self-contained in a foil packet.

    A hobo dinner is when a meal is all cooked together in a foil packet. Everything is thrown in together to create an all in one meal. It makes for easy prep, simple clean up, and 100% delicious food.

    You can easily change up the veggies you choose to stuff your hobo packets with. Some substitutions can be red or white potatoes, different types of onions, carrots, bell peppers or additional fresh herbs.

    Should you have folks who don’t love meat, these packets work great as a 100% vegetarian recipe. Throw everything in but the meat and you are good to go.

    Use your favorite BBQ sauce; I like my Homemade BBQ Sauce or when I’m feeling spicy, Chipotle Honey BBQ Sauce. That said you can use anything that tickles your fancy at the store or from your favorite local BBQ spot.

    Chipotle Honey BBQ Sauce is a delicious recipe that will leave you with your very own homemade BBQ sauce! Slightly sweet and slightly spicy, it tastes perfect on anything that needs homemade BBQ sauce. #BBQsauce #homemadeBBQsauce www.savoryexperiments.com
