Great meals made easy!
When I was a young girl my older sister and her two daughters were very involved with the Girl Scouts. They would go on camp outs and they learned how to cook over an open fire, (sometimes they grilled). They would tell Grandma (my mom), about all the fun recipes they made. One favorite was a potato dish they would make in foil and cook it on the grill. My mom adapted the same basic dish for the oven. I never knew what the real name for this dish was, but in our family it is known as Girl Scout Potatoes. I hasten to add the disclaimer that this dish is no way sanctioned by the Girl Scouts, nor is it meant to violate their copyright!
It is a very simple dish, and for some reason we only made it in the summer…I guess it was a tradition for us. It doesn’t have much spice, but relies on all the flavors of the vegetables and it is delicious anytime of the year. Give it a try and see what you think!
You can also make individual portions, in heavy foil, the “Girl Scout” way. Butter the foil and layer the vegetables as described. Gather the foil around the top and cook them on the grill until the vegetables are tender.
Chicken Kebabs Marinade:
Normally I would put onions and peppers on my chicken kebabs, but when I serve Girl Scout Potatoes I only put chicken on the skewers. Here is a good marinade to use with the chicken:
Ingredients: (Enough for 8 pieces of chicken.)
