Set up your cooking environment. If you are cooking with a campfire, try fire sticks to get it started. Then, put your cast iron skillet on a grill grate to cook … or, you can use a propane camp stove or RV stove as the heat source for this recipe. 

Toss together and set aside In a non-reactive bowl, combine these ingredients and set aside.

  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ½ lemon, juice from it

Brown the meat In a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, cook bacon till almost done.

  • 4 slices thick bacon, cubed

Now add these ingredients and cook till softened

  • ½ small onion, diced
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced (omit or increase based on your heat level preference)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced

Chop your veggies on cute retro RV camper trailer flexible cutting mats! 

Now add chicken and brown on both sides

  • Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken before placing it in the cast iron skillet
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves

Now add these ingredients, reduce heat, cover and simmer Cook covered till chicken is cooked through (about 30 minutes depending on size of chicken breasts).

  • 1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can corn, drained
  • ¼ teaspoon dried cumin 

Long “Tweezers” help you stay a safe distance from the campfire while adjusting it for cooking temperature.

Add toppings, just before serving

  • 1 bunch cilantro, rough chopped
  • Avocado tossed in lemon juice (you prepared and set aside)

Serve it, I like to serve this chicken over brown rice.

When cooking this Cast Iron Skillet Camp Chicken Recipe with a campfire,  I like to use “tweezers” to arrange the campfire logs and coals. Tweezers provide more control than just using a fire poker or shovel. You’ll want to keep your campfire flames roaring to keep you warm but more controlled for cooking.

Be careful when handling hot cast iron camp cooking equipment! I like using Heat Resistant Gloves that extend well above my wrists. These are especially handy when cooking over a campfire which is much hotter than cooking with a camp stove or RV stove.
