Foil-Pack Chicken & Broccoli Dinner

1 package Stuffing mix; chicken flavor; 30 min box
1 1/4 cup water
24 ounce Boneless skinless chicken breast, 6 oz each
(OR Chicken Tenders)
4 cups Broccoli florets
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
4 tablespoons Ranch dressing

Preheat the oven to 400*

Spray 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 w/ a 6 oz chicken breast half

Top chicken with 1 cup broccoli

Sprinkle with 1/4 of the cheese and 1 slice of bacon, crumbled

Drizzle with 1 tablespoon ranch dressing

Bring up foil sides and fold to seal, leaving room for heat circulation inside

Place packets on a cookie sheet and back for 25-30 minutes

Remove packets and let stand for 5 minutes

We have a gas stove so we don't usually follow the time frame given on most recipes because then our food generally burns. We put ours in for about 15-20 minutes our chicken came out looking like this...

Still pink in the middle.
(This image doesn't give it justice)

We ended up putting our packets back in the oven for a few more minutes. 

Beware of how thick your chicken breasts are. My husbands chicken was thicker than mine so when all was said and done my chicken was a bit tough. We think chicken tenders would work best.
Then you don't run into the broccoli being too mushy or the stuffing too crunchy. 
It will then come out just right!!

Let us know what other variations you did to make this great for you!
