These foil packets are easy to make and even easier to clean up!

I love foil packets for a simple weeknight dinner, or for dinner while camping.

You can make Chicken Bacon Ranch Foil Packets in the oven, on the grill or even over a camp fire.

These foil packets are filled with juicy chicken, mini potatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon and ranch seasoning.

What you need to make Chicken Bacon Ranch Foil Packets:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb.)
  • Baby Dutch yellow potatoes (you can also use mini red potatoes)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Ranch seasoning mix
  • Reduced fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Center cut bacon
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper

You’ll want to use heavy-duty aluminum foil, especially if you’re grilling the foil packets.

Prepping this meal is very easy. I started by cleaning the mini potatoes, then cutting them in half.

I added them to a medium bowl and drizzled them with olive oil, then added ranch seasoning. Give it a good stir so all of the potatoes are covered in the seasoning.

Lay out four pieces of aluminum foil. You want them large enough to fill with the chicken and potatoes plus roll up the aluminum foil.

Make sure you spray the foil with olive oil spray or the food could stick to it.

Add 1/4 of the potatoes to the center of each sheet of foil.

Top each set of potatoes with one chicken breast. I added more ranch seasoning mix, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to the chicken.

Fold together the top and bottom of the foil, then the sides to form a packet.

If you’re baking the foil packets it will take 30 minutes, grilling takes about 20-25 minutes. Once the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees it’s fully cooked.

Carefully open the foil packets, it will be very hot. I added cheese to each packet then closed it up to melt.

Once the cheese is melted top it with bacon pieces and green onions. It’s a delicious, easy meal!
