Guest Post: Foil Packet Jerk Chicken from Plucky's Second Thought

Hi everyone!

Today's guest poster is Plucky from Plucky’s Second Thought.  Way back in June, I co-hosted her link-up party, so you may remember her from back then.  :)  Like I mentioned, she had an amazing series of blogging tips that you definitely should check from the big names in blogging, whether you are just starting out like me, or a seasoned pro.  :)

Check out this recipe for foil packet jerk chicken first, and then pop over to say hello on her blog!


Hello all! I'm Plucky from Plucky’s Second Thought…but most call me Jess. :) Why "Plucky" you may ask? Well, it was a nickname when I was younger and it was one that was never forgotten! At Plucky’s Second Thought I try to post easy craft projects and recipes that anyone could accomplish. Yep, you don’t have to be Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray to attempt anything on my blog! There are also a variety of travel and product reviews as well as some awesome giveaways and link parties! :)

This is a YUMMY summer recipe that everyone in the family will for sure love! You could make this on a grill or even in doors in a skillet! Did I mention that it was easy to make? :) ENJOY!


Foil Packet Jerk Chicken

  • 18 chicken tenders or 3 large chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 tbsp jerk seasoning (we used Paula Deen's "Butt Rub")
  • juice from 1 lime
  • nonstick foil
  • Toss chicken, vegetable oil, and jerk seasoning on a sheet of foil.
  • Form a packet around the chicken.
  • Grill over high heat (turning once or twice to prevent burning) for 25 minutes.
  • Top with cilantro and lime juice.


Thanks for sharing with us!  I have been wanting to try out cooking in a foil packet, and this looks like just the right recipe to try.  :)  I'm a huge fan of easy cooking and no clean-up!

Remember to head over to Plucky’s Second Thought and say hello "in person" and check out more of her fun posts!
