Tin Foil Dinner

We love to go camping as a family and have made this recipe on two trips already this year. You don't have to go camping to enjoy it, though. You can make it in your oven and the clean-up is easy!

2 Tbsp uncooked instant rice
1 bone-in chicken breast half
1/4 cup sliced carrot
2 onion slices, separated into rings
1/4 cup julienned green and sweet red pepper
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 to 3 tsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp butter

Place rice in the center of a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 14 in. square); top with chicken and vegetables. Combine the water, Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce; pour over vegetables.

Dot with butter. Fold foil around the chicken and vegetables and seal tightly. Place in a baking pan. Bake at 350 for 65-75 minutes or until chicken juices run clear (more around 30 minutes for us in the fire, it will vary). Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 1 serving.


  1. Good camping idea! We did these at girl's camp but I had forgotten about them. I especially like the part about no dishes!
