These Lemon-Parlsey Foil Packet Potatoes are delicious, made with baby potatoes drizzled with olive oil and spices, finished with lemon zest and parsley.  The perfect side dish for chicken, steaks, or anything you’re grilling! You can make just about anything in a foil packet! A few other favorites I make Cajun Shrimp Foil Packets, Meatloaf Foil Packets and Shrimp Scampi Foil Packets.

My preferred foil for grilling is Reynolds Wrap Heavy-Duty Aluminum Foil which is a heavier gauge foil than standard Reynolds Wrap, which is perfect since you don’t have to worry about breaking or tearing, even with heavier foods and it protects food over direct heat.

Lemon-Parsley Potatoes

What makes these potatoes so tasty is the lemon zest and parsley, so don’t skimp! If you’re using larger potatoes, just cut them into smaller pieces so they cook faster.

Reynolds Wrap is produced using food safety and quality standards, making the foil my go-to in the kitchen and on the grill. Heavy Duty Foil is also available in a wider 18-inch roll, great for larger foil packets to throw on the grill.

How To Make A Foil Packet

  • Tear off an 18” sheet of foil.
  • Center the food on the foil sheet.
  • Bring up the long sides of the foil, so the ends meet over the food.
  • Double fold the ends, leaving room for heat to circulate inside.
  • Double fold the two short ends to seal the packet.
  • Bake or grill as instructed.

  1. How did you get 5 purple we for this? Isn’t the only points the oil at 0 pts. So 4 points at 4 servings would be 1 pt per servong.

  2. This was a wonderful side that I was able to make with sirloin steaks grilling at the same time. Simple and wonderful! Thank you Gina for all of the great recipes.

  3. I made these in my air fryer. They weren’t cooking well in the foil, so I dumped them directly into the basket. They cooked much better- and were delicious! (Sorry, Reynolds…)

  4. Had this with steak last night and it was delish. Only change I made is mincing a couple cloves of fresh garlic as oppose to the powder.

  5. What a simple way to cook these potatoes. Its warming in Australia and we’re going to be able to get back on the bbq soon and have freinds over. Looking for inspo for recipes.

  6. These are delicious. I made them to accompany a steak with mushrooms. I doubled the recipe (used one large heavy duty sheet on bottom and one on top) and cooked as directed. Delicious and will make again. 

    I also tossed them under the broiler for a couple of minutes at the end to get them a little more brown. 

  7. These were so yummy. I made half just for myself and finished them all.  Will definitely make again and they’ll be great for guests.  And so easy.

  8. These were amazing, I made them exactly has specified and they were a hit at dinner. Thanks for another great recipe

  9. How well do these reheat?

  10. About how many potatoes is 16 ounces?

    • I would encourage you to purchase a scale as I use mine all the time. My brand is Eat Smart. When I made this last night, I halved it for 2 and had about 6-7 potatoes, however it all depends on how small your potatoes run.

  11. Can these be done in an air fyer? if, so what temp & time? LOOK SO DELISH!

  12. Absolutely delicious idea, photos and presentation ! Thank you very much !

  13. How do you get a short end and long end from a square????

  14. I just made this in the oven and broiled an extra 10 mins.
    Beautiful flavor. It tasted like Greek style potatoes minus the organi. Perfection! I will definitely be making this often.

  15. Looks delicious, thinking of substituting cauliflower for a low carb version!

  16. Can these foil packets be added to an Instant Pot meal?

  17. I would like to take these camping. Can the potatoes be parboiled prior to packing for quicker cook time?

  18. can i make this in the instant pot?

  19. I know this is a Reynolds sponsored post. Do you think this would roast ok in a covered dish?

  20. This looks yummy! Can this be done in the air fryer?
