Today I brought you a mess of a dinner.

Trust me, I realize it’s not much to look at.

But it’s one that my kids LOVED so I figured I had no choice but to share it with you.

Have you ever made hobo packs? The idea is that you just pile everything into aluminum foil, seal it, and then put it on the grill until everything is cooked through.

So they are great to do while camping but since I’m not much of a camper, I did these in the oven. Either way works though!

Cheesy Chicken Hobo Packs Recipe!

I’ve avoided these hobo pack recipes for years now because I assumed those guys I live with wouldn’t like them.

But these Cheesy Chicken Hobo Packs have cheddar cheese, ranch dressing, and bacon. All things my guys love! And it even has the only veggie they all agree on.

They are super simple to make because you just put all the ingredients in an piece of aluminum foil and then bake until the chicken is done.

And clean up is a breeze since the mess is contained in the aluminum foil.

Seriously, so easy!

How to Grill Hobo Packs

To change the recipe from the oven to the grill, just cook the hobo packs over medium heat for 20 – 25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
