Savory Sundays: Chicken Foil-Pack

Welcome to the first installation of Uncorking Peonies’ Savory Sundays. This was actually our dinner Friday evening before staying in on the raining night and renting a movie from RedBox. It was just one of those nights where I didn’t want the fuss of making an extensive recipe or doing dishes afterwards. Plus I hadn’t made this little digit for G yet and it is SO tasty — it was a must to end the week!

Though not the healthiest option, this recipe utilized all items I already had in the kitchen and some chicken breasts I had meant to cook a few days prior (but opted for some of the best local pizza instead. #YOLO) It received many compliments from my future hubs, so no complaints on this end for an easy Friday at home.

Chicken Foil-Pack

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Place in the oven and eat in 30 minutes -- how easy is that! Be sure to use chicken cutlets for fastest cook time with no pre-cooking.

I love to make this easy foil-pack on nights I’m not feeling a lot of clean up afterwards. You get to skip dishes completely as it’s simpler to keep these chicken mixes in the foil even while eating!

Ingredients

  • 1 package stuffing mix, chicken flavored
  • 24 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast (sliced into 6oz)
  • 1.25 cups water
  • 1 fresh broccoli head, cut into florets
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 cup bacon crumbles
  • 4 Tbsp ranch dressing
  • celery salt, salt, pepper, garlic powder

Directions

  1. Spray 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil with oil
  2. Combine stuffing mix with water
  3. Spoon 1/4 of the stuffing mixture onto the center of each foil sheet
  4. Season chicken breast with seasonings to taste
  5. Top stuffing with a 6oz chicken breast
  6. Top chicken with 1/4 broccoli
  7. Sprinkle with 1/4 of cheese and 1/4 of bacon crumbles
  8. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp ranch dressing
  9. Bring up foil sides and fold to seal, leaving room for heat circulation
  10. Place packets on a cookie sheet
  11. Bake 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees
  12. Remove packets and let stand for 5 minutes
  13. Cut slits in foil to allow steam out
  14. Serve immediately on foil as juices will have accumulated

There is no need to pre-cook the chicken if you slice it into 6oz strips. The whole point is to have a quick and easy, no-clean-up meal.

Enjoy, friends!
