What Are The Benefits of Chicken Baked In Foil
Besides easy cleaning up, there are many reasons to use foil for baking chicken or meat in general.
When we wrap the chicken in foil, it helps to seal the natural juice and keep it moist and tender. When we cook chicken in the oven at a high temperature and keep it open outside, the skin gets dry unless you keep basting.
With the foil, it helps to keep the steam trapped and cook faster as well.
How To Make Broccoli Chicken Stuffing Foil Packs?
Prepare your oven by preheating it to 400°F.
Season the chicken according to your taste preferences on both sides. I use a mixture of seasoning salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Then tear four equal-sized squares of foil from the roll of foil. Place them on the counter, one next to another.
The spray each of the centers of foil to avoid the food sticking.
Combine the stuffing mix and water and mix it well. The water will absorb into the stuffing.
Spoon and divide the stuffing evenly onto the center of foil sheets.
Now take a place a seasoned piece of chicken on top of the stuffing mixture. Add broccoli florets on top of chicken.
Drizzle the ingredients with ranch dressing, and sprinkle bacon bits on top.
Add ¼ cup of cheese on top of everything.
Bring up foil sides and leave a small opening up top to allow steam to escape. Fold to make four packets and place them on a baking sheet.
Bake the packers for 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.
Can I Use Frozen Broccoli In The Foil Packs?
Yup! You sure can. Fresh or frozen broccoli can be used for this recipe.
