Cheesy Ranch Chicken Foil Packets are super easy to put together for a make ahead meal that can be cooked on the grill, in the oven, and is great for camping, picnics, and barbecues!
Foil packets, also known as tin foil dinners, make the perfect summer meals. You put them together ahead of time and cook when ready. The best part is they are a complete, self contained meal.
They can be cooked in the oven, on a grill, or even on an open fire which makes them perfect for camping. And you know those grills at the park? These are perfect for them too! They are self contained so you don’t have to worry about how gross the grill is. Because I’m not the only one who worries about that, right?
This recipe is all about the sauce. This flavorful ranch sauce tenderizes the meat and brings a lot of flavor to both the chicken and the veggies. And who doesn’t love ranch? It’s a classic flavor combination for a reason.
This recipe is also easily customizable for picky eaters. You can mix and match veggies to your liking. When using potatoes, just be sure to cut your potatoes into small pieces (less than 1/2 inch) so that they cook at the same rate as the chicken.
