  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, mix melted butter and ranch dip mix. Coat each chicken breast in butter mixture. Wrap each chicken breast with 1 slice bacon, stretching bacon to cover as much of the breast as possible; secure ends of bacon to chicken with toothpicks.
  • 2
    Stack two 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil; fold edges over, and bring up sides to make a basket. Spray foil with cooking spray. Place foil on grill over medium heat; place chicken on foil. Cover grill; cook 4 minutes. Turn; cook 4 minutes, then turn again, cooking 3 to 6 more minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove toothpicks. Serve chicken topped with ranch dressing and dill leaves.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure to use thick-cut bacon since regular bacon can dry out and burn on the grill.
  • Fresh dill adds a lovely brightness, but if you’re not a fan, feel free to substitute chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley.
