If you have ever been camping you have probably had one of these or something similar for dinner. You can make them with chicken, pork chops, fish, etc… and the vegetables of your choice. I don’t know why I never thought of making them in the slow cooker before. These would be great on a cold winter night to recreate that ’round the campfire feeling. Especially if you have a fire-place start it up and have a picnic dinner!
These were so good! Both of the kids loved them and started planning what they would like in them the next time we make them. The best part is that clean up is minimal and you can take one packet out at a time if you are eating at different times on a busy night. So, great.
Tip: Use the leanest cuts of meat possible to avoid your packet being too greasy. Our ground beef was 85% and I would not go any lower than that in making these packets. Ground turkey, chicken breasts would all work really well.
