Easy Chicken Recipes

Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Dessert

There's nothing like a hot, healthy meal of good, wholesome food like chicken or chili after an exhausting day of scouting! Kids and leaders can get some great food recipes here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner as well as desserts and trail snacks. There's also a selection of dutch oven recipes. Start the day right with a high-energy breakfast, take a break at mid-day with a nourishing lunch, and don't forget to make time for a fun dessert around the campfire after dinner. Cooking is a big part of scouting and scouts learn a lot about becoming self-sufficient, clean, patient, and forgiving when it comes to meals cooked in less-than-ideal conditions.

This site is awesome.  I have been facilitating Cub Scout Day Camp for 10 years and needed some fresh ideas.  Thanks so much!

Great receipes, thanks for sharing. I am teaching a LNT Master Educator Course this weekend and will be using some of your ideas.

Deborah - I hope your LNT ME training went (goes) well.  What recipes did you use and did they turn out?

I recently was at cub day camp and they had a cooking station.  The first day the boys were given a spoonful of mashed potatoes and they had about 30 seasonings they could use from 3 to all of them.  For some kind of control boy scouts added the seasonings they chose.  They had to mix it thoroughly try it and then it was discussed what they added and if they like it or not.  Excellent opportunity for them to experiment.  The second day they were given a parboiled chicken leg in a sandwich bag and again they chose their seasonings and then it was put on a grill and browned for them.  I have taught cooking for about 50 years and never thought about that.  What a great way to teach them not to be afraid to experiment

This is such a terrific web site.  I would love it if this search engine also had the capability of filtering for hike-friendly meals, and/or if each recipe had a note at the top stating such. For example, I'm looking for some inspiration for light-weight but energy-packed meals for backpacking and back-country camping on the Appalachian Trail.

That said, anyone have any recommendations for some meals like that? Something to take Ramen noodles to the next level, or otherwise make some pretty yummy meals after a long day of hiking (and carrying the food with you)? Thanks!

@John - The recipes here are more for Scout cooking, not backpacking.  When backpacking, the weight vs. calorie battle is more important than the cooking experience.  Knorr Sides of rice or noodles, supplemented with pouches of tuna, chicken, or salmon have worked well for our troop.
You might check out this Hiking Food page for more info on trek food planning.
