    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.”  The best of both worlds is making a simple meal on the grill, like BBQ Chicken Hobo Dinner.

    Prep time is minimal with only a few chops of onion and sweet potato, and clean up is nonexistent, as the only thing you need to do is throw the aluminum foil in the trash.

    Since BBQ Chicken Hobo Dinner doesn’t require much oversight or hands-on observation after they are on the grill, you can still make them when the weather turns chilly.  Just run out, set em on and run back in!

    What is a hobo dinner? I know, it’s an odd term to use in a recipe since hobo means a homeless person. 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. Easy prep, easy clean up, 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.
