Foil-Pack Chicken and Broccoli Dinner

Matt liked this... I thought it was ok.  I have a lot of commentary to make it better haha.  Here is the original recipe and photo.  I think the bacon gets too chewy and you need more than 1 slice, the chicken portion is large, I would rather have the savory herb flavored stuffing instead of chicken and it is kind of soggy, needs a little more cheese..... haha.  And it took closer to 45 minutes than 30 to bake these suckers so maybe downsize the breast or pound it thinner.
