Hobo Dinners Recipe
With hot weather here no one wants to spend lots of time over the stove or in the kitchen.
These dinners are delicious, easy, adaptable to tastes and adjustable to the amount of persons you're feeding. They work great for camping trips also!
2 chicken leg quarters
Mesquite flavored chicken rub seasoning
1/2 stick butter
1 ear of corn on the cob split in half
2 medium sized potatoes
8 baby carrots
8 cherry tomatoes
1 onion peeled and halved
Preheat your oven to 350*
Lay out two large sheets of aluminum foil
Place on each chicken leg quarter seasoned with dry rub.
Arrange veggies around the chicken leg.
Shake a little more seasoning over the veggies.
Place two single tablespoon pats of butter in the mix before cooking. Especially over your 1/2 ear of corn and the potatoes.
Roll up the foil into pouches.
Place on a cookie sheet.
Place in preheated oven. Roast for 1 hr 30 min. Then check progress. Roll foil back to expose just the chicken. Turn heat up to 425* and finish cooking for 30 more minutes. This will brown and crisp your chicken skin. I check mine using a meat thermometer which for poultry should read 180*. If you don't have one the juices should run clear and there should be no pink left in the meat.
Place everything in the foil.
Roll 'em Up!
Yummy! Piping hot and done!
