Camp Chicken and Stuffing Recipe

A couple of our Scouts earned their cooking merit badges at our second summer camp this past summer. Meals at this camp were served in a dining hall, but the merit badge counselor brought lots of ingredients and they cooked a couple of things every afternoon. So at about 3 or 4PM we would get invited over to the counselor’s campsite to sample dishes the group had made. It made a nice afternoon snack. This one was LC’s favorite of all of the dishes we sampled.

    Do you have a recommendation for a Dutch Oven? Someone told me it works best if your Dutch Oven has feet also–do you find that to be true?

    Recipe sounds yummy! How long did they cook for after putting stuffing in?

      I think it was about 15 minutes after that.

    The stuffing mix listed here– is it a Stove top stuffing mix or a dry breadcrumb stuffing, like you’d use with a turkey?
