Hobo Packets

I came up with this recipe after talking to my uncle about his days of traveling around Texas as a teenager during the Depression. He told me about smelling the most wonderful smells from a couple of miles away, and tasting the terrific stews, that he said you didn't want to ask what was in it. This tastes great served with cornbread, and you can also use boneless chicken breast or thighs Enjoy and let me know what you think.
