Chicken and Summer Squash Packets

These family-favorite grill packets are a great make-ahead meal. They can be assembled the night before and refrigerated. Just add a couple minutes of grill time.

Hands-on Time: 35 min. | Total Time: 35 min. | Serves: 4 | Difficulty: Easy


  • 4 tsp. butter, softened
  • 4 (4-6 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp. all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 small (6”) zucchini, cut in 1” pieces
  • 1 small yellow summer squash, cut in ½” slices
  • 4 (½”) wedges red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


  • Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Cut four 18”x12” pieces of heavy duty foil. Spread 1 teaspoon of the butter in center of each piece.
  • Dust each chicken breast lightly with flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in center of foil. Evenly arrange squash and onion around and over chicken.
  • In small bowl, mix mustard, honey and ginger; spread over chicken. Bring short sides of foil up over chicken and seal, using double fold seals. Seal edges using double fold seals and allowing room for heat expansion.
  • Place packets on grill seam sides up. Cook 20 -25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and internal temperature reaches 165°F, rotating packets once for more even cooking. Carefully unfold packets to serve; sprinkle with parsley.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.
