Southwestern Chicken Packets ~ Camp Cooking

Although the thermometer is dipping low in much of the country, dreams of the endless summer continues. Snow outside means making plans for a trip to the lake when the heat index increases. Holiday time with friends and family means checking dates on the calendar to head to camp. And what does heading to camp mean? What’s for dinner? A weekend away seeks easy, delicious dishes, that require little clean-up. Even a full week of holiday will do well with some simple and easy dinner fare after a long day at the lake or exploring.

From our friends at Desert Now Dinner Later we bring you Southwestern Chicken Packets. These simple to prep and easy to cook and the individual packet options allows for different taste preferences. Try them out in your oven this winter and I bet you’ll be bringing them along to camp next year!

These Southwestern Chicken Packets are an easy and delicious tin-foil dinner recipe you can cook with a fire (while camping), on a grill, or in an oven.
