Can of diced Tomatoes/with garlic and onion
Can of green beans...can use french style also
I took a few strips of the Chicken, some green beans, some of the diced
tomatoes, and feta cheese...wrapped it in foil, continued doing this till
ingredients were gone....wrapped them up tight and grilled for 20
minutes...BOY were they yummy! I use a charcoal Webber grill..so maybe
wouldnt take as long on a Gas grill...for those who dont like Feta cheese,
