Chicken-Bacon-Ranch Foil Packs

Whether you make this meal in a foil pack or as a casserole, the prep is quick and easy, using a few different ingredients.

I would make this as a casserole by placing the ingredients in a casserole dish and bake covered in a 400 degree oven (which may need to be tweaked a bit).  The foil pack method is attractive as a no-mess alternative.

Many reviewers of this recipe used sliced potatoes instead of brocolli with great results.  Some used italian dressing instead of ranch.  Of course I would add fresh mushrooms!


3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, each cut in half lengthwise
1 cup ranch dressing
1 bag (12 oz) frozen broccoli florets, cooked 
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
6 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled


Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 6 sheets of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray.

Place 1 boneless skinless chicken breast half in center of each sheet of foil. Sprinkle each with salt and pepper. Top each with 2 tablespoons ranch dressing, 1/4 cup cooked Green Giant™ Valley Fresh Steamers™ broccoli florets, 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese and 1 tablespoon crumbled cooked bacon.
Wrap each foil pack.  Bring 2 sides of foil up over chicken-broccoli mixture so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again.  Allow space on sides for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal. Place foil packets on ungreased large cookie sheet.

Bake 30 minutes. (Some reviewers reported having to bake longer for 50 minutes)

Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. 

Serve with additional ranch dressing, if desired.
