Arrange beans in centre of large piece of heavy-duty foil or double-thickness foil. Scrub and quarter potatoes; add to beans. Sprinkle with chives, 1 tbsp (15 mL) water, salt and pepper; dot with butter. Fold foil up over vegetables and fold over edges to seal and form packet.

Place on grill over medium heat; close lid and cook, turning once, until beans are tender-crisp and potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
