(Originally made 6/28/2007)
Needed a side dish to serve with Grilled Dixie Chicken. A friend sent me this wonderful cookbook
from Good Housekeeping, it's called GRILL IT! I've got so many post it
flags marking recipes to try, it looks like a rainbow :)
what I settled on, easy and good and the timing was perfect with the
chicken. I forgot the garlic at home, so I substituted a teaspoon of
garlic salt and omitted the 1t salt called for in the recipe.
Lemon Garlic Potato Packet
2 1/2lbs red potatoes, not peeled, in 1" chunks
12 garlic cloves, peeled (omitted, subbed 1t garlic salt)
2T olive oil
1 1/2t fresh grated lemon peel (I used Penzey's dried)
1t salt (omitted)
1/4t coarsely ground black pepper
outdoor grill for covered direct grilling over medium heat. In large
bowl, toss potatoes, garlic, lemon peel, oil, salt and pepper until
evenly coated. Layer 2 30"x18" sheets of heavy duty foil to make a
double thick sheet. Place potatoes on middle of foil. Bring short ends
up and fold over to seal. Bring up other way and do the same, sealing in
Place packet on hot grill over medium heat and cook,
turning once halfway through the grilling time, until potatoes are fork
tender, about 30 mins. Makes 8 side servings.
