This easy dinner just landed at the top of our must-make recipes!

Inspired by the classic Hawaiian haystacks, it is beyond delicious! Made with chicken, rice, fresh vegetables, and teriyaki sauce for a flavor packed meal the entire family will love.

My husband said this foil packet is full of nostalgia. He can remember making these as a kid around the table with all of his siblings. Part of the fun was letting everyone have a hands on experience. They would serve the ingredients in separate bowls and let everyone stack on their favorites.

Can you cook tin foil dinners in the oven?

This is one of the most versatile dinners to make. It can be cooked in the oven, on the grill, or on hot coals. The foil packs are a great makeshift dinner plate and make for easy clean up! Just crumple and throw away.

How to make Hawaiian Haystacks in tin foil:

  1. Create double lined rectangles with your foil. Fold the sides up creating a 1″ rim.
  2. Mist the foil with non-stick spray.
  3. Divide cooked rice between the packets.
  4. Top with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Seal.
  6. And cook!

Hi, This sounds delicious. I'm not familiar with tin foil cooking so I have a couple of questions. Is the 1 1/2 lbs. of chicken raw or pre-cooked? When you place the ingredients in the tin foil do you cover the top or cook open? Thanks so much, Abbey

Hi abbey! Yes, the chicken is raw when you stick it into your foil. You also do want to fold the tinfoil into a packet with a closed top.
