Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Foil Packs ***

This was much better than I thought it would be.  The chicken was absolutely wonderful.  The kids actually said their favorite part was the broccoli!  That's not as huge as it might be in other families, since my kids do like broccoli anyway, but the veggie isn't normally the highlight of the meal in their eyes.  Needless to say, I was pretty excited at their response.  I didn't measure anything, other than the water that went into the Stovetop (I always use the cornbread dressing instead of the stuffing), but I was able to stretch it into five packs, so that hubby would have one for lunch tomorrow too.  There was plenty to go around, and we were all stuffed when we finished.  I really think that shoving it all into four packs would have been a bit much.  Mine cooked exactly 40 minutes and were perfect.  I also used the pre-cooked bacon pieces, since that's all I had.  Over all, it was a yummy meal that was fairly easy to throw together.  Definitely a winner for us!

1 package Stuffing mix; chicken flavor
1 1/4 cups Water
4 Boneless skinless chicken breast halves
4 cups Broccoli Florets
1 cups Shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices cooked bacon; crumbled
4 tbsp Ranch dressing divided

Preheat 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 35-40 minutes (depends on the size of your chicken breasts).
Remove packets and let stand 5 minutes.
Cut slits in foil for steam before opening.
*Amy's notes: I split mine up into 5 packets, which was perfect.
