Foil-Pack Chicken & Broccoli Dinner

It’s mid March.  We’ve hardly had any snow this winter.  It’s March.  It was in the 60s today.  In Minnesota.  In March.  So what do we do here in Minnesota when it’s near 60 degrees?  We put away our winter clothes, we grab our spring jackets, (and according to the news – this past weekend a woman was laying on the beach in a bikini)!.  And if you’re Brooklyn, you come home from school, put on your tank top, shorts and dress shoes and go ride your bike!!

If you’re Nana, you fire up the grill and cook your dinner on that instead heating up the house with the oven!!

It’s not the first time that we’ve grilled, but today was a perfect day to try a new recipe and see how it turns out!  And this was pretty good!

what you need

1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken

1-1/2 cups water

6 (I used 4) small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), 1/2 inch thick

4 cups broccoli florets

1-1/2 cups KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese (I used fat free)

1/4 cup OSCAR MAYER Real Bacon Bits

1/2 cup KRAFT Ranch Dressing

make it

FIRE and bring it to 400 degrees (if you don’t have a thermostat on your grill – just get it hot!!)

COMBINE stuffing mix and water; spoon onto centers of 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil. Top with remaining ingredients.  I sprayed mine with Olive Oil Cooking spray so the stuffing wouldn’t stick.

BRING up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in 15x10x1-inch pan.

Grill 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Remove packets from oven; let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packets.

VARIATION

Prepare using KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese and KRAFT Light Ranch Dressing.

COOKING KNOW-HOW

To prevent stuffing from sticking to foil, spray foil with cooking spray or use nonstick foil.

COOKING KNOW-HOW

If the chicken breast halves in your market are larger than 4 oz. each, they will take longer to cook. Be sure to cook them long enough so that they are no longer pink in the centers and the juices run clear (165°F).

When I took the chicken out today my intent was to make the Pulled Chicken Sandwiches, but because it was so nice again, I couldn’t pass this up.  Glad I did.  This was a “will do” again.  I thought about slicing potatoes and putting that on the bottom of the foil pack with some cauliflower or fresh green beans!
