I have made hoboes with ground beef for years, but found this and couldn't wait to try and I was NOT disappointed.
Picture
Ingredients:
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!
Picture
Directions:
 - 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 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!
Picture
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!

Not sure the answer to this question since I've never made it on a grill...but I would say to judge it by how long you would normally cook your chicken on the grill...I'm thinking it would be around the same amount of time as in the oven...but hopefully someone that has cooked them on the grill before will answer your question on here. Happy cooking!

05/22/2012 11:05am

You can make this without stuffing..I put my chicken breast in the foil and sprinkle it with seasoning salt..then wrap..wrap my potato after puncturing it and then set the oven at 325..go off to church and when I get back all I have to do is warm a vegetable or have salad and dinner is done.. by the way, I have let this bake up to an hour and a half and it does not burn, but the meat will melt in your mouth..this is with the skin on, but you can peel the skin off after it is cooked..

Reply
06/03/2012 2:40pm

It will be a different dish without the stuffing, but season the meat to your taste with the seasoning you are wanting and maybe add another vegetable along with the broccoli ... close up the foil and cook. If it is a potato that you have added, make sure that you have sliced it thin. Hope that helps Stephanie.

I would be careful about adding the chicken in the packet ahead of time as raw chicken can contaminate other foods. But the rest of the food you should be ok to prepare ahead of time.

I would use your own judgement ... you are dealing with raw chicken - so be very careful and aware of that. It is so easily put together, you could have your ingredients prepared ahead of time and throw it together in less than ten minutes...if time is your concern. Enjoy!

I saw someone ask if you can refreeze uncooked chicken. I have wondered this before and looked it up on USDA's website a while ago. Basically, if you defrost frozen chicken by letting it sit in your fridge a while then you can refreeze it. Here is the link: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/FactSheets/Focus_On_Freezing/index.asp#14

There has been some discussion about doing these on the grill. I usually do foil type dinners for about 45 minutes (for thicker pieces of meat I do them a little longer). I also put shredded cabbage on the bottom so that the meat or whatever is on the bottom doesn't burn. I love the way the cabbage keeps everything moist. And most of the time I eat the cabbage (I like it a bit on the browned side.) I'm definitely going to try this recipe. It sounds scrumptious.

Thanks so much for this recipe! It was a huge hit, even with our non-stuffing fans. Being an unusually hot summer, I cooked the packs on the grill - worked like a charm! (Allowed 45 minutes; convection grill - very moist w/no burning.) My only "creative touch" was to cut my HUGE chicken breasts into the size of thick tenders, then wrap in slices of ham lunch meat; two per pack. We have a new family favorite!

You place a hamburger patty on a sheet of foil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Top with slices of onions, carrots and potatoes. (I sprinkle with a little more garlic powder over veggies) Top with a pat of butter. Seal the foil and I bake at 350 for an hour. I now make this in a casserole dish where I smash a pound of meat in the bottom of a 8 x 8 dish, layer the veggies, top with patts of butter, cover and bake. I have added a little beef broth to this since I use 93/7 ground beef.

Delicious! Made this for dinner tonight. I opted for placing all of the ingredients into a glass casserole dish & covered with foil. I baked it at 400 degrees for 40 minutes and it turned out perfectly.

Was great! Hubby said it was like thanksgiving dinner. Cut my chicken into cubes to make sure it cooked thru.

I made this tonight and it took WAAAY longer than 35-40 min! It's been in the oven now for over an hour and the chicken is still pink in the middle. Also, my stuffing is now all watery. What the heck have I done wrong? I don't believe I've done anything wrong because I followed the instructions step by step!

Amanda, I make this almost every week. I find that small chicken breasts work well. I put mine in for an hour every time. 30 mins is def. wayyyy to short of a time. Also, the stuffing will get watery if the chicken breasts have been halved by yourself.

Do you cook the stuffing according the the instructions on the box or just mix it with the water then proceed?

This was a great, easy, healthy weeknight dinner. I followed directions exactly and it turned out great. I baked mine at 375 for about 40 min. Thanks for sharing, this would be a great camping recipe too.

Thanks for the idea. I made this tonight, it took 60 mins to cook. I merinated my chic in Italian dressing overnight, then followed your recipe. Broccoli was fantastic, I think I wolf like BBQ sauce more than ranch next time. Thanks again

My family loved this! I made it tonight, without the bacon, and hubby and our 2 girls sucked it down and asked for more! I only made it without the bacon because I didn't have any in the house. Next time I'll make sure to have the bacon on hand. This is definitely a keeper!!

o.m.gosh. Tried this tonight, BF loved it! Me too. I didn't use the stuffing because he is diabetic and I have problems with wheat. Just chicken, broccoli, cheese, Food Lion precooked bacon, and sugar free buttermilk ranch dressing. I used Grill mates Seafood rub for the chicken and broccoli. I used more than a tbsp of the dressing and we had a gravy to run the chicken through for each bite. He even had more for "soppin' gravy" as he says, to run a piece of sourdough through. Yum! He said he would definitely eat this again! This is a keeper! Thank you!!

Made this again this afternoon. This time I added onion and garlic and used extra dressing for gravy. We had picked up a half of buttered garlic bread from Wal-Mart for $1.05 and he used that to soak up the extra gravy from the sauce. So good!! I don't use the stuffing due to the carbs for himself who is diabetic.

TRIED - OMG!!!! This was soo freakin' good!!! I followed the recipe to "T" except I added bell pepper. (Next time I will add sweet vidalia onions) and instead of cooking strips of bacon I used real bacon bits which worked great! also my chicken breasts were kinda thick so I cooked on 350 for 1hr. Very simple and easy to make. Thanks so much.

Just wanted to say YUM! This is now one of our family favorites. Working many hours I dont always feel like fixing a hot meal and take out is too easy and not the best on your health. This I can cook in no time flat-I can even precook the bacon ahead of time and keep in the frig., The broccoli can be chopped and ready also. Just a matter of minutes to throw together and pop in the oven while I wind down from work. Thank you so much for such a simple healthy meal!!

WOW! This will make camping a true gourmet treat. After decades of being a Girl Scout & leader, I was getting pretty tired of the burger routine. I did do a pork chop, sweet potato, onion & mandarin orange foil dinner, but never thought of the stuffing. I'm in love with that idea!
