Chicken and Morel Camp Dish
This is a recipe for outdoor aficionados! If
you're hunting, fishing, or searching for
mushrooms, you may also be camping. With the
great bounty now offered by the out-of-doors,
camping doesn't necessarily mean "roughing it,"
at least not when it comes to dining. This
is a delicious and easy-to-prepare campfire
dish which will leave you wishing for more.
Pump up the camp stove and light the burner!
Heat a Dutch oven over your camp stove, adding the butter or oil. Add the onions and garlic, or ramps if you're lucky enough to have some. Sauté until softened.
Add the chicken pieces. Brown and season with salt and pepper. Add the mushrooms and stir. Add the rice and stir well to coat with oil. Add the herbs and liquid. Bring to a simmer and cover tightly.
Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking at a simmer for about 40 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and all the liquid is absorbed by the rice.
