How To Make This Lemon Feta Campfire Chicken Recipe

What makes this recipe so simple? This is one of our easy camping meals that features standard, readily-available ingredients and only takes about 15 minutes to prep.

Step 1. Start your campfire. Get out your camping fire starters to get your fire going.

You can use a tripod or campfire grill grate to hold your Dutch oven for cooking over hot coals or low flames … you will be cooking over medium heat. If you are camping with fire restrictions activated, you can also make this meal as regular camp stove recipes by placing your Dutch oven directly on your camp stove or RV stove.

Step 2. Prepare the veggies and other ingredients.

Now you will slice/chop the onion, tomatoes, garlic and parsley. Then juice the lemon.

Step 3. Season the chicken. Liberally add salt and pepper to both sides of the chicken breasts before placing in the Dutch oven.

Step 4. Heat the oil. Pour oil into a 12-inch cast iron Dutch oven and very carefully place it on a campfire tripod or campfire grill grate.

Step 5. Add onions and chicken to the pot. This is one of our Dutch oven camping recipes that is cooked uncovered. Place the onions and chicken into the Dutch oven, stirring occasionally until the chicken is browned on both sides which will be about 10-15 minutes.

Step 6. Add remaining cooking ingredients. Add tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice, olives and oregano to the Dutch oven and simmer an additional 20-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 7. Cook the rice. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the rice according to package directions.

Step 8. Remove from heat and serve. Remove the campfire chicken breast pot from the heat, then top with feta cheese and parsley for serving over rice.
