Chicken Dinner in a Dutchoven

After I make this for someone, everyone has to have the 'recipe', so it will be nice to have this in a spot I can refer them too! Not hard or not much for a recipe but SOOO good.

Chicken Dinner in a Dutchoven

6-8 Chicken Breasts
1 bag mini carrots
6 potatoes, sliced (or one per person eating)
1 big and 1 small can of cream of chicken soup

Sprinkle your chicken with Montreal Chicken Spice done by McCormicks (this is the key ingrediant ;)). Put a little bit of oil in your Dutch oven and 'brown' the chicken. Add the potatoes, carrots and cream of chicken on top. Cook until the carrots are tender. I usually cook it for about 45-60 minutes depending on how hot your coals are. After the first 40 minutes or so, stir everything up to let it get all the way to the bottom! You can always add cheese if you desire as well!


Mountain Man Breakfast

  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 (32 oz) pkg. frozen hash browns
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 1/2 lls, cheese grated
Brown bacon and onion; take out and set aside. Fry hasbrowns until golden brown. Put bacon and onions back in. Break 12 eggs; beat. Pour eggs over first three ingredients. Cover with lid and cook until solid, 14 briquets on top and 10 on bottom. Sprinkle cheese on eggs, cook until melted.

Moose Balls

This is a girls camp favorite of mine. Never mind the name, though!

rhodes rolls dough
hersheys kisses
vegetable oil
powdered sugar

Heat oil in dutch oven. Unwrap kisses. Cover each kiss in dough and roll in to a ball. Put in oil to fry. When ball is done frying, roll the ball in powdered sugar. We've also tried it with other chocolate candies, such as reese's peanut butter cups. SO YUMMY!!

Cheesy Potatoes

We are all about doing simple things in the dutch oven. When we go camping, we always make these potatoes! They are super easy, and super good!

potatoes- as many as you need, sliced
chopped onion
bacon (Grizz likes to cook his seperate, I like to cook mine in with everything else.)
shredded cheese

Cook all the ingredients (except cheese) in the dutch oven until potatoes are soft. Add Cheese and melt.

These are also delicious the next day for breakfast!
