Chicken Pot Pie

  • 4-6 Whole Boneless Chicken Breast
  • 1 Cream of Chicken, Mushroom or Broccoli Soup
  • 1/2 c Water or Milk
  • 1 Can Mushrooms
  • 2 Bags of Califlower, Broccoli and Carrots (frozen vegetable mix)
  • 1 Large Onion
  • Olive Oil
  • Butter
  • Salt & Pepper (or seasoning of choice)
  • Cooking Spray


Spray the bottom of a medium sized foil baking pan with the cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with sliced onions. Spread the sliced mushrooms and frozen vegetable mix over the onion layer. Mix soup and water (or milk). Spread soup mixture over vegetables. Add a little olive oil and butter. Season chicken and place on top of mixture. Using heavy duty aluminum foil, cover the pan completely from side to side and end to end wrapping all the way over the bottom of the pan to create a good seal.

Put on camping rack over hot coals. Check for doneness after about 1 hour (cooking time will vary depending on the heat from the coals). If you place it directly on the coals it may stick to the bottom of the pan.

Baked Apples

  • Granny Smith Apples
  • Butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon Candies
  • Caramels


Make sure you have a Granny Smith Apple for everyone! Core the apple, leaving a thin layer on the bottom. In the cored out area, put a pat of butter and a tablespoon of brown sugar (less for smaller apples.)

Wrap the apples in foil, (for really HOT coals double wrap). Place the apples on the coals, and roll every 10 minutes. Cook for about 30 minutes, dependant on how hot your fire is.

Serve with a whipped topping, ice cream, cheese, or just as they are off the fire.

Beef and Vegetable Stew

  • 1 Pound Sirloin (cut in chunks)
  • 4 Red Potatoes (sliced)
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1-2 c Vegetables
  • 1 Tsp Salt

  • 1 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp Butter


Preheat your grill to medium heat. Measure out 2 or 3 sheets of aluminum foil in 2-foot lengths, and layer one on top of the other or use a large aluminum grilling bag.

Layer the meat, potatoes, onion and vegetables on foil, salt and pepper, then dot with butter.

Wrap foil around into a sqaure and seal the edges. Place aluminum wrapped package over medium heat and cover.

Cook for about 40 minutes, turning once. Serve hot off the grill.

Campfire Cooking Recipes for Blue Cheese Burgers

  • 2 Pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 c Blue Cheese, Softened
  • 2 Tbsp Minute Maid Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice, Thawed


Combine ground beef and salt; mix lightly. Form into 4 large, thick burgers. Place about 3 inches from broiler or hot coals and cook until desired doneness. Meanwhile, combine blue cheese and orange juice concentrate; beat until smooth. Spread on hot burger.

Tip: Burgers will always be juicier if you form a depression on one side of the burger instead of having them completely round.
