Chicken Bacon Ranch Foil Packet

You will love these delicious Chicken Bacon Ranch Packet Meals. We recently went to stay at a cabin in Red River Gorge KY and made them for dinner.

These foil packets are the perfect all in one dinner for camping or anytime you are staying at a cabin. We cooked them on the gas grill but you could easily cook them on a campfire.

I love to cook foil packet meals because they remind me of my childhood. This easy recipe is a twist on the traditional Hobo Dinner because it uses chicken. Everyone loved the flavor combination. I mean you really can’t go wrong with Bacon, Ranch, Cheese and Chicken can you? We think not.

This Chicken Bacon Ranch Packet dinner was easy to prepare. Each family member could customize it to suit their needs and tastes which is always a Mom win for me. I would suggest this heavy duty aluminum foil to cook your meals in.

You can serve this dinner with a nice salad or green beans if you desire. Our crew absolutely loved this meal. I will be making this again for sure at home and while on vacation.

We hope you enjoy this easy dinner recipe as much as we did. It was a crowd pleaser for sure. With ten people eating and not one complaint I call that pure dinner joy.
