Grilled Barbecue Chicken and Vegetables in Foil

Come to think of it, we can never get enough of this. You just can’t stop taking, bite after bite… By the end of they day?!? Only crumbs remain. Seriously awesome chicken… seriously.

Okay so, the chicken and veggies are really incredible. I enjoy this more than the Italian Chicken I made for you last year. This is packed with enough flavor that I’d MAYBE consider eating it without the barbecue sauce. I’m lying.

The real winner here IS the barbecue sauce! AND I want to slather it on everything humanly possible.
