Treats for the Trail: Bacon Ranch Chicken
6/22/2017 6:30:00 AM BY Hanna Inman

Each month, we feature one campfire recipe to help you expand your outdoor cooking skills. This month, we’re sharing a delicious chicken recipe from Joe Hudson, a Trail Life USA Point Man for Pennsylvania and leader with Trail Life Troop PA-0328. The ingredients in this recipe should be measured to your taste (though, don’t overdo the ranch or things could get messy!) and feel free to add or remove flavors. 


Bacon Ranch Chicken


  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast or thigh
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Crumbled Bacon
  • Choice of seasoning
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Raw Cabbage Leaves (optional, but suggested)


  1. Place cabbage leaf in foil, if using. Lay chicken on the cabbage. Put a dollop or two of the ranch dressing on top of the chicken. Add cheese, bacon, and seasoning. Add another cabbage leaf on top, if desired.
  2. Close the foil and cook 15-20 minutes on each side, depending on the size of your chicken. The cabbage leaf will help retain the moisture inside the foil pack and help prevent your food from burning.


*Important: Always be sure to check the temperature of poultry before eating. Fully cooked chicken should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit (75 degrees Celsius)
