The Confetti Vegetable Medley topping these Spicy Ranch Chicken Grilled Foil Packets gives this recipe a festive feel…which is exactly why you’ll want to enjoy them at your next backyard BBQ!
Our grilling adventures continue this summer with Spicy Ranch Chicken Grilled Foil Packets. It’s the type of dinner you might enjoy on a camping trip. But, you won’t be roughing it. Nope. You and your family and friends will be savoring chicken slathered with a spicy ranch dressing and topped with a confetti of diced vegetables. They’re as tasty as they are pretty!
You’ll love this recipe because:
- Each packet is completely customizable right down to the vegetables that go inside and whether or not the dressing is spiked with sriracha. (Everyone’s happy!)
- You don’t need plates…eat right out of the foil packets if desired. (Fewer dishes!)
- It’s perfect party fare. After dinner, make s’mores and tell ghost stories! (That’s what we did!)
We are roughing it out on the porch! 🙂

Spicy Ranch Chicken Grilled Foil Packets Tips and Tricks
I looooove a medley of finely diced vegetables (Check out Vegetable Rice Pilaf and Cajun Dirty Rice Bowls if you feel the same way!) The presentation is so pretty and the flavors meld together so nicely. That said, you don’t have to go to the extreme. Slice the carrots and cook the green beans whole. It’s almost a rainbow!
Tyson® boneless, skinless chicken thighs are the flavorful base of this recipe. They’re topped with Hidden Valley Ranch® dressing spiked with a touch of sriracha…if your dare. If you don’t want the heat, just leave it out!
Let everyone make their own packet. Provide a buffet with all the ingredients. Each person will mound the chicken with vegetables of their choosing and drizzle more dressing over the top! Fold it up and let the grill work its magic. (Don’t forget a marker to label the packets!)
