Campfire cooking recipes can be fun to try over an open fire surrounded by your friends and family as you enjoy the sounds and smells of the great outdoors all around you.
Ahead of time make this glaze for the chicken kabobs:
1/4 Cup Orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 Tbs of Honey
1 Tbs of Soy Sauce
Dash of Ground Ginger
1 Lb skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1" pieces
1 Cup fresh pineapple chunks
1 medium green sweet pepper, cut into 1" pieces
1 medium red sweet red pepper, cut in to 1" pieces
Taking 6" long skewers alternate the chicken, pineapple, green peppers and red peppers leaving about 1/4" between each piece for basting. Place the kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over the medium fire and grill for about 12-14 minutes or until no longer pink. Place on hot coals, turning and brushing with glaze for up to the last 5 minutes of grilling time will help prevent the glaze from burning. If you are using wooden skewers instead of metal it is best if you soak them in water first before grilling with them or they may catch fire. You should soak them in water for about twenty minutes before using them.
Roasting Sweet Corn on the Campfire
You'll need about 6 Ears of Sweet Corn with husks, peel back the husks from the corn but do not remove. Clean all the silk off of the corn and rinse, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap the corn in the corn husk and tie with wet kitchen string. Place on a grate over the fire but not where it will char and slowly turn and roast the ears on all sides for about 25-30 minutes. You would want to start the sweet corn first before the kabobs.
Campfire cooking recipes should be tried with cast iron cooking as an asset in regards to roasting a few vegetables in a dutch oven like celery and carrots with a little bit of spices and any left over chicken you could turn this dish into a tasty stew or hash by adding a few potatoes and some left over corn. Corn on the cob never tasted better than fire cooking over a campfire enjoying the great outdoors.
Kabobs can be made with several kinds of meats including lamb, beef, chicken, chunks of potatoes, pineapple, onions, peppers, shrimp and even fish. If you can thread it on to a skewer than you can make a kabob out of it. You can glaze the kabobs with soy sauce, olive oil, seasonings, honey or fruit juice to come up with a combination that you like. Kids enjoy a twist on a campfire cooking recipes by turning ordinary hot dogs into a kabob by threading chunks of hot dogs with chunks of pineapple and slowly roasting them over a campfire.
