Ranch Chicken & Broccoli Foil Dinner

I love Tin Foil Dinners in the summer. We have a fire pit in our back yard and are always roasting marshmallows, tin foil dinners, cooking hot dogs, enjoying woof-ums, etc. But since winter doesn't allow that as much, ya have to do what with ya can. These are so filling and full of flavor.

Ranch Chicken & Broccoli Foil Dinners
1 package chicken-flavored stuffing mix
1 1/4 cup water
4 6-ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts ~ cut into bite size or halved.
4 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
real bacon bits
4 tablespoons ranch dressing
salt & pepper to taste

Spray 4-6 sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil with cooking spray.  Combine stuffing and water. Spoon about 1/4 of the stuffing mixture onto the center of each foil sheet.  Top stuffing in each packet with chicken, season with salt and pepper, then add 1 cup of broccoli. Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup of the cheese and bacon, then drizzle with 1 tablespoon of ranch dressing. Repeat with all packets.

Bring up foil sides and fold to seal, leaving room for heat circulation inside.  Place packets on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, till chicken is fully cooked. Remove packets and let stand 5 minutes.
