EASY Baked or Grilled Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Foil Packets bursting with juicy chicken and tender, flavorful potatoes and broccoli all smothered in cheddar and dipped in Ranch Crema! These chicken foil packets are SO addictingly delicious and a meal-in-one that are quick to throw together and even quicker to clean up!
Remember when I shared my Italian Mozzarella Chicken Foil Packets a few weeks ago as the winning vote of asking my IG friends (IG pic HERE) which of 3 Chicken Foil Packet recipes they wanted me to share first? Well, I didn’t want to bias the jury then, but while I loved all 3 chicken foil dinners, these Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Packets were BOTH Patrick and my favorite.
They are exploding with flavor, have a little kick of heat but still totally kid friendly, and the combo of buffalo + chicken + potatoes + broccoli + cheese = winner winner the best Chicken Foil Packet Dinner! These Buffalo Chicken Foil Packets boast hardly any clean up, can be grilled or baked, are a meal all in one, and a convenient make-ahead meal or grab and go lunch (just pull a cooked packet out of the fridge and reheat). There is so much to love about these chicken foil packets and that’s before you even taste them!
The flavor infusing star of the Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Foil Packets is the wet rub and it creates the juiciest chicken around. My other tip for crazy juicy chicken and the most successful chicken foil packets (as I explained in detail HERE) is microwaving your longer cooking veggies for a few minutes so you cook your chicken foil packets just until your chicken is done and NOT until your veggies are done. This ensures your chicken isn’t overcooked because overcooked chicken is dry chicken – not on my watch!
I used a very modified version of my popular Buffalo Chicken Marinade consisting of olive oil, Frank’s Buffalo WINGS Sauce (NOT original), splashes of lime juice and brown sguar, and hand picked spices resulting in a rounded, dynamic Buffalo flavor that is SO crazy delicious. 1/4 cup of this Buffalo Wet Rub coats the veggies (no boring veggies here!) and the rest of the Wet Rub gets slathered all over the chicken for 30 minutes or you can prep ahead and refrigerate up to 4 hours.
The robust Buffalo deliciousness is complimented by the refreshing, tangy creamy Ranch Crema. Because Buffalo + Ranch = perfection. And you + Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Foil Packets + Ranch Crema = complete and total foodie bliss.
