When it comes to cooking if in doubt, steal. At least never let yourself be caught out not quite knowing what to do or how to make something delicious, especially when we have so much resource at all of our finger tips.
This is one of those recipes, I will pass it off as my own and suggest levels of culinary wizardry that will defy reality. In actual fact, I googled it and found something I liked and that’s what this recipe is.
But bugger me its delicious and worked a treat, so I am claiming it as my very own.
This is a load it all up one pot wonder, which works perfectly for large numbers of hungry people at camp. Get your pan nice and hot over the coals, and then add the oil. I find its good to check the level at this stage and make sure your pan is nice and level and the oil covers the whole surface. This means you are less likely to get sticking burning patches later on.
- Chop up your onions and add them to the pot.
- Slice your packs of bacon into 1-2cm slices.
- Add a table spoon of garlic and brown the whole lot off for about 10 mins.
- Add your chicken sliced into even sized pieces and mix it all around to cover in the onions and bacon, brown the chicken off gently.
- Add the BBQ sauce.
- Add the chopped potatoes and stir thoroughly and let simmer for about 10-15 mins
- Add the peas and keep on a gentle heat for a further 10 mins.
This is not about being refined and cheffy, this is about being practical and producing something delicious that is easy to eat. We cooked this one evening when it was still too hot to be camping, but we had a good team assembled for a mini adventure.
Fortunately we had fed the children first hot dogs on the BBQ, as this turned out to be one of the hottest things I have ever eaten. So be warned, if you get spicy BBQ sauce this can blow your head off.
