Bacon ranch chicken foil packet
I have been loving easy foil packet dinners lately and this simple Foil Packet Bacon Ranch Chicken recipe has become a family favorite. I know this recipe seems crazy easy but give it a try.
The chicken is super juicy and the juices from the chicken flavor the potatoes and green beans perfectly. It is a one stop and mess free dinner that the kids will love getting in the kitchen to make.
You can toss it on the grill, a campfire, or you can bake it in the oven. Either way, it is packed with flavor.
This recipe allows you to spend more time with your family and less time cleaning up. Since everything is wrapped in the foil, cleanup is easy.
Just toss the foil and go! No pots and pans to wash!
Sounds like my kind of dinner! It is perfect for crazy busy weeknights when you are running from place to place.
We have an amazing homemade ranch mix that we love. It is super easy and so delicious with this recipe.
Ingredients for bacon ranch chicken:
- frozen (or canned) green beans
- chicken breasts
- Ranch mix (We love this easy homemade ranch mix.)
- shredded cheddar cheese
Products you need:
- heavy duty foil
- mandoline slicer for easy slicing of the potatoes)
How to make bacon ranch chicken foil packet:
Just a tip- You will want to use heavy duty foil for a foil pack so it won’t break when you are grilling. You can use regular foil but I recommend you double wrap it to avoid it breaking in the oven.
First, get 4 pieces of aluminum foil and spray them with non stick cooking spray. Another option is olive oil.
Second, place some of the potato slices on each piece of foil. I like to use a mandoline slicer to quickly slice my potatoes. I love it and it saves a ton of time.
Next, add the green beans on top of the potatoes and then the chicken breasts. Season with salt and pepper. Add the ranch mix and butter on top. Yum!
Top with shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled cooked bacon. This is going to taste amazing with the ranch dressing and it’s so quick and easy.
How do you fold a foil packet?
It is so easy! Just fold up each of the sides of the foil until everything is sealed. You now have a foil pack ready to go!
Finally, put the foil pack on the grill or a campfire. Just be careful when you open the packets.
Serve and enjoy!
How to bake in the oven:
Just make each foil pack as normal. However, instead of putting them on the grill, place them on a baking sheet.
Put in the oven and bake! The baking sheet will make it much easier to remove from the oven.
Carefully open and enjoy!
It goes great with grilled corn on the cob.
I love that you can cook this on the grill or the oven. It makes it super easy to enjoy this year round regardless of the weather.
It is such a delicious meal and sure to be a hit with the entire family.

Have the recipe printed and only need to pick up bacon and ranch seasoning – both added to grocery list 😉 I like the comment regarding the uncooked bacon, might try that since it’s so messy cooking bacon. Or maybe try those salad topper bacon pieces? Looks and sounds great, thank you!
My family went nuts for these! I baked them and they turned out awesome! Matter of fact, I’ll be making these tomorrow! Thank you for a great family meal!
I’m so glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for sharing!
I like my bacon crispy so I use cooked bacon. I usually buy the precooked ones that just have to be microwave which causes less of a mess. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
I hope you enjoy it!
Cooking this for the first time on actual fire coals. Hope it’s as good as in the oven! For you guys asking I cook it in oven at 400 for 40 min. I put the foul packets on a cookie pan. I also use real bacon bits. We had some leftover ham from Christmas. Stick that in too! Yum! And I did dump out the extra liquid I’m love this!
Sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing!
For those who hate the mess of frying bacon. I always cook my bacon on a microwave bacon pan I found in Bed Bath and Beyond, I think. Had it a long time. Just lay the bacon in the pan, lightly cover with several layers of paper towel. Microware for 1 minute at a time until it cooks to your liking. The pan has raised ridges that keeps the bacon from cooking in the grease. When finished it takes a couple of seconds to drain the pan and put it into the dishwasher.
Thanks for sharing! I have used one of those before too and loved it!
This recipe is delicious and easy to make. The chicken is so juicy and tender. The potatoes and green beans have such a good flavor. I’ve made this recipe several times and each time it comes out the same. Last time I added onion rings. Yum
Can I sub rice for potatoes
Are you cutting chicken breasts in half horizontally? Is that what is meant by filleting them? Thanks! Want to make these tonight. Sound yummy!
Yes that is what I mean. You don’t have to, but I like to so it cooks quicker.
Could this be made on a blackstone flat top grill?
Yes, this would work great on the blackstone! We love using our blackstone. if you love recipes for your blackstone, check out our other site – https://grillonadime.com/
Med/high… How long on the Blackstone?
I would cook it the same amount of time – but flipping regularly.
