Hobo Dinners

Hobos? aka Boy Scout Dinners, Camp Fire Dinners, Pouch Meals

Cut chicken into bite size pieces, season to taste. Cut vegetables of choice. Fold large heavy-duty foil double and make a "bowl." Place chicken on bottom, then put veggies on top.

Spoon 1/4 to 1/2 cup sauce of choice on top. Seal foil at top very securely. Bake in oven at 350 for 45 minutes or until chicken is done.

Ground beef/turkey is also yummy. Tender roast meat works. I like corn, onion, potato, okra, tomato, squash/zucchini, diced chiles. The Mighty Hunter likes jalapenos too!

Sauce? I do my rotelly chicken sauce. 1 can Rotel. 1 equal sized can tomato sauce. 2 T brown sugar. The Mighty Hunter wants Worcestershire in his - lots of it. Stinkerbell likes Worcestershire and brown sugar.

These are good on the grill, campfire (hence Boy Scout Dinners), you name it. Eat right out of the foil or spoon servings on to plates. Make this recipe your own with your own sauce and adding your favorite veggies.

Hey Auburn Gal! Thanks for dropping by my sunday supper blog.

You should definitely make the brown bag roasted chicken. You will not be sorry. My family eats it up like a bunch of starving dogs. Especially the kids. :)

As for weight watchers, I haven't really changed the way I cook since I started. I am a member of WW online and they have a recipe converter. I type all my recipes in there and it converts it and gives me the number of points per serving. Very handy.

Glad you enjoyed the blog. Keep checking back - I post new recipes each sunday.

Growing up, Hobos were hamburger patties on the bottom of a casserole dish, sliced onions on the top of each, then they were covered in cubed potatoes. I'd slater ketchup all over mine & pig out (after giving my onions to my mama, of course!)

A few years ago, our chef at work made Hobos, but he had each patty topped w/ green beans and cream of mushroom, then potatoes. It was yummy, too.

I've never heard of it with chicken... guess there's probably a million different versions of it out there!

Makes me hungry (and wishing my mom still cooked for me!)
