How Do I Make Ranch Chicken Bacon Foil Packets?
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees, or a Traeger or a grill to medium – high heat.
- Lay 4 pieces of 10″ – 12″ long heavy-duty foil or 8 pieces of 10″ – 12″ long regular foil doubled, out on the counter.
- Place the chicken on 1/2 of a cookie sheet.
- On the other side of the cookie sheet place the potatoes, carrots, and onions.
- Drizzle with oil.
- In a medium bowl combine the Dry Ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, salt and pepper, then sprinkle over the chicken.
- You may want to turn the chicken and add oil and seasoning to the other side as well.
- Place chicken and vegetables onto the pieces of foil, dividing them equally.
- Sprinkle the top of each packet with bacon bits or chopped bacon that you have cooked.
- Add cheese to each packet.
- Grab opposite sides of the foil, and place them together. Roll them down until they are about 3/4″ from the food. Roll the ends up as well.
- Bake in a preheated oven or place the packets on the Traeger or grill.
- Cook for 20 – 25 minutes, or until all the chicken and vegetables are cooked.
Tips and Tricks For Ranch Chicken Bacon Foil Packets:
- We really enjoy the option of cooking these foil packets indoors, or outdoors on the Traeger or on the grill.
- Add Carrots and onions or not, depending on whether you want them, or add any veggies that you want.
- You can also cook ranch chicken bacon foil packets while you are camping, however if you cook them in the fire, make sure to double your foil, or use a nice heavy duty foil.
- I like to quarter or half the potatoes; that way they cook faster. I also cut the chicken into bite size pieces, so that they cook faster too.
