One of my favorite camping recipes: Mountain Dew Chicken
1/2 lb. thick-cut apple wood smoked bacon
1 gallon zip-loc bag with 1 cup flour
5 chicken breasts
5 Russet potatoes medium/average size
1 bag shredded carrots
1 large Vidalia or sweet onion
1 can Mountain Dew soda
1/2 cup shredded three cheese or five cheese mix
Chop bacon into 1-inch pieces.
Dice potatoes into roughly 1” cubes.
Dice onion to preferred size.
Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise.
Preheat dutch oven by setting on bed of 8 to 10 coals.
Fry bacon in Dutch oven until crispy.
Remove bacon from Dutch oven but leave grease.
Shake chicken breasts in baggie of flour to coat.
Cook in bacon grease to brown, about 5 minutes, turning a couple times.
Pour vegetables, bacon, and Mountain Dew on top of chicken.
Cover with lid and cook at 350° for 45 minutes with 3/4 of coals on lid. Make sure to rotate lid and bottom every 15 minutes.
Using tongs or fork, lift chicken breasts so they are resting on top of vegetables.
Sprinkle cheese over the chicken.
Cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
Serves 6 to 8.
As with ant Dutch oven recipe, this can easily be made at home using either a Dutch oven or a covered electric skillet.
