Chicken Bacon Broccoli Ranch Foil Packets

Howdy from Austin!
I have been gone FOR-EVER I know...packing, house hunting, moving, road tripping, hotel-ing.  Technically, I am still not even back...I am battling the mind numbingly slllooowww hotel Internet to write this post.  Our house will not be ready until the 18th, so we have been hotel dwellers.  Oh.  My.  Hell.  I am so sick of hotel breakfasts and restaurant food, BLERG!
I was looking through some recipes I had saved up and saw this, and like Pavlov's pooches, I drooled.  It was so stinkin' good and I could possibly sell my pooch to have some now.

My sweet Bella
Awww, never mind, she's too cute...I miss her....she has been staying with Auntie Jan since we are doing the Urban Camping thing.  Urban is when you cram 2 adults and 3 kiddos into a hotel room.  It sounds much more glamorous than it is.  Trust me. 

Anyway, it was scrumptious...seriously, what is not to love about chicken, broccoli, bacon, cheese, ranch, and a handy dandy foil packet?!?!  I highly recommend that you make it immediately, if not sooner!

Chicken Bacon Broccoli Ranch Foil Packets
Recipe Source:  the brilliant Cassie from Cassie Craves
  • 1 package chicken-flavored stuffing mix prepared to package directions
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 4 TBSP ranch dressing, yup the stuff out of the bottle
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray 4 sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil with cooking spray.
Divide the stuffing mixture onto the center of each foil sheet.
Top stuffing in each packet with a chicken breast half, season with salt and pepper, then add 1 cup of broccoli. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the cheese and one slice of bacon, then drizzle with 1 TBSP of ranch dressing. Repeat with all packets.
Bring up foil sides and fold to seal, leaving room for heat circulation inside.
Place packets on a cookie sheet and bake 25 to 30 minutes. Remove packets and let stand 5 minutes. Cut slits in foil for steam before opening.
