Top-ranked recipe named "Foil-Pack Chicken and Broccoli Dinner (15)"
So easy... put in the oven and eat in 30 min. Be sure to use chicken cutlets for fastest cook time and no pre-cooking.
"My husband is the pickiest eater ever. And he loved this. I did make slight changes but not much. Used tenders instead of breasts. Seasoned with seasoning salt garlic salt n a dash of pepper. Fried on skillet just to brown with some pam. And for the stuffing only added 1c of water. Added spinach to it as well. Boiled that for 5 min and did not precook broccoli. The steam is good in the packets that it will cookbthe broccoli just fine. Also cooked it for 35 min. Came out PERFECT!!! even my 2&3 yr old loved this. Ty so much for the post!!!! Will def make again!"- mommy2pt
- Oven to 400

- 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

Many people are precooking, searing, or something else to the chicken. The whole point is to have a quick and easy no clean up meal. 6 oz cutlets work the best in this recipe and bring it to perfection at the thirty minute cooking time.
dmillersquared 3 weeks agofew things I did differently.... i used cooked brown rice instead of stuffing, omitted the bacon and used bacon ranch dressing, and used thin sliced chicken breasts instead of whole. cooked the broccoli fully beforehand and baked for 15 minutes since the chicken was thin and everything else was precooked. also seasoned chicken first.great base recipe. there are so many variations you can use with this!

Largwin 2 months agoAwesome used less water as suggested in another review. The chicken breasts were pretty thick though, next will cut them thinner
kelly7150 5 months agoSince the kids love broccoli I added more broccoli than the recipe called for. The whole family loved it!! My toddlers even asked for more. Will definitely be making this again!!
christinagarrett 5 months agoFinally tried this recipe tonight. I did NOT precook anything. Used thawed broccoli and instead of ranch (not a fan of ranch) I used cream of chicken soup. I always use broth in my stuffing. It was a hit. Will try again using BBQ sauce.

MGallucci 6 months agoI love this recipe and most importantly so did my kids. I am making this for the second time tonight for dinner and the reaction from them was music to my ears.
rlbowers92 6 months agoThis is sooo easy and my 4 year old loves it! I didn't change a thing about it and it comes out perfect every time. This works great for nights that I work late and don't have the time or energy for an elaborate meal.
soly9800 6 months agoI make this on the weekly! My girls love it. I've perfected it. Buy chicken strips. Wash & dry. Season with garlic & onion powder, basil & oregano. I use sage or chicken stuffing. Just add 3/4 cup chicken broth to mix. Slightly moist not wet. DO NOT USE FROZEN BROCCOLI. SPRAY FOIL WITH PAM. 30-40 min it's done. Due to dieting I omit bacon & use light rank & low sodium stuffing
