Reynolds Kitchens® Tips


Using Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil on the grill makes cooking, cleaning up and wrapping leftovers a breeze.


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1½ pounds fingerling potatoes, sliced ¼ inch thick
  • 2 lemons (1 juiced, 1 cut into 4 wedges)
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 shallots, sliced ¼ inch thick
  • 8 sprigs thyme
  • reynolds wrap® heavy duty foil


Step 1

Preheat a grill to medium high. Lay out four 18-inch-long sheets of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil on a work surface. Generously season the chicken with salt and pepper. Toss the potatoes, lemon juice, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a large bowl.

Step 2

Divide the potatoes and any juices among the foil sheets, mounding them in the middle. Top evenly with the shallots, thyme and lemon wedges. Top each mound with a chicken breast. Brush the chicken with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Bring the short ends of the foil together and fold to seal, then fold in the sides.

Step 3

Grill the foil packets seam-side up, 8 minutes. Flip the foil packet, gently press down and continue grilling until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender, about 6 more minutes.
