Quick and Easy Chicken Dinner on the Grill




Every big, juicy steak deserves to be seasoned with an equally big, bold flavor. Next time you fire up the grill, layer on savory goodness with spices and marinades. They bring out the natural flavor of steaks, ribs, roasts, burgers, chicken and fajitas.

Start with a tender, savory cut and there is no need to marinate. Simply rub on a few com­ple­men­tary herbs and spices then sear in the good­ness on the grill. Come up with your own combination or let the professionals do the work. Prepared blends, such as those from Mrs. Dash, are a quick and easy way to give guests great-tasting dishes, salt-free. After all, salt has nothing on the smokin’ flavor of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning Blend. A blend that includes sweet chili, cayenne and chipotle pepper, it gives a flavorful kick to ribs, chicken, rice or beans.

Herbs and spices aren’t just for entrees. Shake some extra flavor on side dishes and appetizers. They can turn your backyard grilling into some­thing grand and gourmet.

Quick and Easy Chicken Dinner on the Grill


Servings: 4
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 12 minutes
4 sheets non-stick aluminum foil, 12 x 18 inches
4 (4-ounce) boneless chicken breasts
1-1/3 cups instant rice
12 thin slices red onion
12 thin slices red pepper
1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
4 teaspoons natural butter flavor sprinkles
4 teaspoons Mrs. Dash Original Blend
1-1/3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Preheat grill to medium high.

Place 4 sheets of non-stick aluminum foil on a flat surface. Turn up edges to form a lip. Place 1 chicken breast on each sheet of foil. Arrange 1/3 cup instant rice around chicken breasts. Arrange 1/4 of the red onion, red pepper and zucchini on top of each chicken breast. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon natural butter flavor sprinkles and 1/4 tea­spoon of seasoning blend on each chicken breast. Add the balance of the seasoning blend to the chicken broth.

Double fold top on one end; pour 1/3 cup of the chicken broth into each package. Fold ends tightly, leaving room for heat to circulate and rice to expand.

Place on grill and cook for approxi­mately 12 minutes.

Remove from heat; be careful of steam when opening foil.

Remove chicken breasts to serving plate. Stir instant rice and vegetables together, place on plate with chicken breasts and serve.
