We are so excited for camping this season.  SO EXCITED!  It’s hard to express our level of excitement in words.  Really.  We just bought a new camping oven, an oven… to take camping!!! And I cannot wait to test out a few recipes in that puppy.  Let me tell ya!

I will be sharing a few camping recipes in the next weeks and months so 
be sure to stay tuned.  This Butter Chicken is a fantastic way to start!  This is a brilliant “one pot” type of meal that makes preparation and clean up while camping a breeze.
 

Tin Foil Packet Butter Chicken

Foil Packet meals are truly the way to go when camping.  They allow you to throw all of your ingredients together in one packet to cook.  Then you just toss the tin foil and have very little mess and clean up ~ which is really the goal when you are camping!
 

Tin Foil Packet Butter Chicken

4 chicken breasts (1 lb), cut into strips
1/2 cup (125ml) butter chicken sauce
10 button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 small onion, diced 
1 bell pepper, diced
 
 
 

Tin Foil Packet Butter Chicken

Place your ingredients on the shiny side of the tin foil.  The shine helps to reflect the heat and creates a little oven in your packet.  We layered our chicken with the vegetables on top.  Then we roll the foil into a packet.  I find that it helps to fold the edges of the foil over once before creating a package ~ the foil in more sturdy that way.
