Outdoor cooking is an integral part of camping, bushcraft, and survival activities. It not only provides sustenance but also adds to the overall experience of being in the great outdoors. In this post, we’ll delve into a simple yet delicious campfire chicken recipe using a Dutch oven, inspired by a video from Speir Outdoors.

Ingredients and Equipment

For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • A Cornish hen
  • Baby red potatoes
  • An onion
  • A bell pepper
  • Mushrooms
  • Bacon
  • Your choice of seasoning rub

As for the equipment, you’ll need a Dutch oven and a bed roll stove. The bed roll stove is a handy tool that allows you to hang your Dutch oven over the fire.

The Cooking Process

  1. Starting the Fire: The first step is to start your campfire. In this case, we used a product called Fire Snot and a survival torch to light the fire.
  2. Preparing the Ingredients: While the fire is getting ready, chop up your vegetables and cut the bacon into pieces.
  3. Cooking the Bacon: Place a few slices of bacon in the Dutch oven and let them cook until they release their fat.
  4. Adding the Vegetables: Once the bacon is cooked, add the chopped onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, and potatoes to the Dutch oven. Stir everything together and let it cook for a few minutes.
  5. Adding the Chicken: Rub your seasoning onto the Cornish hen and place it in the center of the Dutch oven, surrounded by the vegetables.
  6. Cooking: Cover the Dutch oven and hang it over the fire using the bed roll stove. Let it cook until the chicken is falling off the bone.

The Result

The result is a delicious, hearty meal cooked over an open fire. The chicken is tender and flavorful, and the vegetables are cooked to perfection. This campfire chicken recipe is perfect for a camping trip or a wilderness adventure.
