    1. In a large bowl, or a large zip-top bag, combine the chicken, onion, mushrooms, yellow pepper, red pepper, garlic and potatoes. Pour in the olive oil and lemon juice, then mix well.
    2. Evenly divide the mixture between 4 large sheets of aluminium foil. Top each with another sheet of foil, and roll up the edges tightly. Wrap each packet again, securely in another sheet of foil to double wrap.
    3. Cook in the hot coals of a bonfire until the chicken is opaque and the potatoes are tender, around 40 minutes.

    we always masde this when I went camping as a kid...but we would use hamburger, onions and carrots (subbing for the chicken and peppers) and keeping all the rest of the recipie. LOVED it every time... I have made it at home in the oven too, never as good as on the campfire though.  -  11 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We used frozen hashbrowns and they were great! We did as suggested and just left them in the cooler, it was a nice change from the usual camping food...thanks for sharing!!  -  10 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for my boyfriend and he ate three of the four! He loved it! I made it in the oven at 375 degrees for about an hour. I also added mushrooms and left out the carrots. I'll have to double it next time!  -  26 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
