  • Heat grill to medium.
  • Blend dressing, 1 can tomatoes and oregano in blender until smooth. Place chicken on large sheet of heavy-duty foil; bring up foil sides. Top chicken with tomato sauce, remaining tomatoes, olives and peppers. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place packet on grate of grill; cover with lid.
  • Grill 45 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packet. Serve chicken topped with cheese.

Special Equipment Needed

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing.


Prepare using 12 chicken legs or thighs instead of a combination of both.

How to Easily Transfer Foil Packet

Place foil packet on baking sheet to easily transfer it to and from grill.


If you don't have heavy-duty foil, use a double layer of regular foil instead.

Special Extra

For extra heat, add 1 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne) to prepare tomato sauce before using as directed.
