Chicken Packets

Kathy Sterling


My first recollection of cooking was this Chicken Packet. I was in Camp Fire Girls at the time and we had this as a meal. I was probably 10 years old.

I don't remember if we had a choice of ingredients, but now I vary mine to my mood.

It is easy, fun and healthy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
