Chicken and Broccoli Hobo Dinners

I love hobo dinners, they remind me of girls camp when I was a teenager :)  Here is a fun twist in the ground beef version.  The chicken turned out super juicy and very flavorful.  I'm sure it had a lot more calories than I would have liked, but really good!

Chicken and Broccoli Hobo Dinners

1 package Stuffing mix; chicken flavor
1 1/4 cup Water
24 ounce Boneless skinless chicken breast; 6oz each
4 cups Broccoli Florets
1 cup Shredded chedar cheese
4 slices Cooked bacon; crumbled
4 tablespoon Ranch dressing

- Oven to 400
- 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 25-30 mins
- Remove packets and let stand 5 mins
- Cut sits in foil for steam before opening.

  1. I made these a while ago and we loved them! What an easy dinner to make on a busy night.

    1. Glad to hear! Our family loved them as well.

  2. Tried these at home in oven, then I tried in a cast iron dutch oven outside, worked great! Not to cook it in 3 dutch ovens for 14 Scoutmasters this weekend for Boy Scout Camporee.

    1. Glad these worked outside for you! I'll have to give them a try this year camping as well.

  3. Made this last night in a dutch oven over a fire while camping. It turn out great! Yummy!

    1. So glad! I've only done the oven version...I'll have to try it out camping this summer :)
