How to make foil packets
* Use a 12 by 18-inch piece of heavy-duty foil. (If you only have regular foil, double the layers.)
* Place food in center of foil; bring two sides to center and fold them over twice, then fold ends in twice to seal package, allowing room for heat circulation and expansion.
* Place packets seam side up on baking pan (in case of of leaks).
* After cooking, cut slits into packet tops to release steam before opening.
