Campfire Chicken Stew

My family loves these chicken stew packets on camping trips, but they're equally good on our backyard grill. —Florence Kreis, Beach Park, Illinois

    4 servings


  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up

Divide the potatoes, carrots and green pepper among the packets. Top each with soup, water, salt and pepper. Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.

    I came across this recipe looking for something to make with extra chicken pieces I had. I put all the ingredients in a baking dish and baked it in the over for 1 and 1/4 hours at 350 degrees. It was delicious and so very easy to make.

    This recipe was tasty and fun but we thought that it needed a little more texture, next time we will grill the chicken first to make a crispier skin. It was so easy to put together and very satisfying.

    I used chicken breasts, and about 1/4 italian dressing. It was very good.
