Ranch Chicken and Potato Packets

A few weeks ago we tried these Ranch Chicken and Potato Packets. They were super simple to make and added a nice variety to our meals. Our grocery store always has chicken thighs on sales. So, after a little research I found this recipe on the pillsbury website.

Step 1: Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut four 18x12-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray foil with cooking spray.

Step 2: For each packet, place about 1 cup potato wedges and 3 chicken thigh halves onto center of foil sheet. Drizzle with scant 1/3 cup ranch dressing. Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.

Step 3: When grill is heated, place foil packets, seam side up, on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill. Cook 45 to 50 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (180°F) and potatoes are tender.

Step 4: Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle each with bacon, onions and pepper.
