Preheat the grill at medium heat or the oven at 420 degrees F.

Cut out 4-5 foil sheets approximately 9 by 13 inch size.

In a large bowl, toss the lamb, potatoes and remaining ingredients.

Divide the lamb potato mixture among the 4 foil sheets and fold over the edges of the foil to form a packet.

Place the packets on the grill or in the oven on a baking sheet for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.

Serve with your favorite garnishes and enjoy!

Foil Packet Tips:

Make sure the lamb chunks and potatoes are approximately the same size.

Season the lamb and potatoes together in the same bowl ( garlic, onion, herbs, lemon juice, and your favorite spices).

Feel free to add extra veggies here: corn, red pepper chunks, green beans, carrots, and your favorite!

Cut the foil into about 9 by 13 inch sheets. If you have a pan of this size, it would be easy to use it as a guide.

Divide the mixture and wrap each foil while sealing the edges.
