*I continue bringing this to the front of my recipe blog because everyone that has tried this recipe since 2012 seem to have really enjoyed the taste and simplicity of preparation. Unbelievable response!!!!
You tell me what you think...(by the way...try putting them on the grill so you don't have to heat up you house this summer)
Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Foil Packs (original post)
I have made hoboes with ground beef for years, but found this and couldn't wait to try and I was NOT disappointed.
1 package Stuffing mix; chicken flavor
1 1/4 cups Water
4 Boneless skinless chicken breast halves
4 cups Broccoli Florets
1 cups Shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices COOKED bacon; crumbled
4 tbsp Ranch dressing divided
- Oven to 400
Below is a picture of the ingredients ready to prepare and go into the foil!
- Spray 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil with oil.
- Combine stuffing mix and water.
- Spoon 1/4 of the stuffing mixture onto the center of each foil sheet.
- Top stuffing with a 6oz. chicken breast half.
- Top chicken with 1 c. broccoli.
- Sprinkle with 1/4 of the cheese and 1 slice of your already prepared bacon, crumbled.
- Drizzle with 1 T. ranch dressing
- Bring up foil sides and fold to seal, leaving room for heat circulation inside
- Place packets on a cookie sheet and bake 35-40 mins (depends on the size of your chicken breasts)
- Remove packets and let stand 5 mins
- Cut sits in foil for steam before opening.
Here is the finished product right out of the oven. Is your mouth watering yet? Mine was watering just smelling it bake!
You could eat it straight from the foil...I slid it to a dinner plate...yum!
Most people would say the above is the finished product...but in all actuality - an empty plate says it all! This is for sure a keeper and one that will be made again and again at this house!
One of the most sought after recipes on my site is the Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Foil Packets. More than half a million people (I promise it's true) have been there and many have shared their success in making it. Hobos in a Foil Packet is a recipe that I have made for my growing family for years. It is an excellent meal for camping trips or just those "in a hurry" nights. You can use ground beef or ground turkey and the clean up is a breeze.
1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey)
4 small to medium potatoes
1 onion sliced
Preheat oven to 350. Tear off 4 pieces of foil and spray with Canola Oil Spray. Evenly divide the pound of ground beef or turkey and flatten into a patty on each sheet of foil. Add Salt and pepper to taste. Add slices of onion divided as shown in the picture below. Lightly salt and pepper.
Next add peeled and thinly sliced potato (one per packet) - salt and pepper to taste. Then final layer is the carrot that has been peeled and thinly sliced (one carrot or more per each packet.) Again salt and pepper to taste. Roll up the foil around the meat and vegetables to seal and place on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Take out of oven and Puncture the top of the foil to let out the steam on each packet.
