Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Roughly chop the peppers. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic.

2 Assemble the foil packet & grill the potatoes

Place a large piece of foil on a work surface. Place the diced potatoes and chopped peppers on one side of the foil. Add 2 tablespoons of water. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the oregano; toss to coat. Fold the foil in half over the potatoes. Fold the three open edges inwards to completely seal the packet. Grill 14 to 16 minutes, or until the water has cooked off and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the grill and carefully open the foil packet.

Meanwhile, place the prepared scallions in a large bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place a large piece of foil on a work surface. Place the tomatoes and chopped garlic on one side of the foil. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to combine. Fold the foil in half over the tomatoes. Fold the three open edges inwards to completely seal the packet. Reserving the bowl, grill the seasoned scallions 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until softened and charred. Transfer to a cutting board. Grill the foil packet tomatoes 4 to 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes are slightly blistered. Remove from the grill and carefully open the foil packet.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; drizzle with olive oil and season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra).
