6 to 8 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 onion sliced
6 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup chicken broth

Instructions

Prepare grill. Spray a large piece of heavy duty foil with cooking spray. Place potatoes and onion on the foil. Dot with butter. Combine cheese, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Sprinkle over potatoes. Fold foil around potatoes and add chicken broth. Seal foil tightly. Grill covered, over medium heat, 30-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Serve with butter and sour cream. Serves 4-6. You can also prepare individual packets for each person.
