Camping Time!

This is the camping weekend of all time. For some it is the first camping trip of the summer and others have been out already, but either way you need some fun easy camping recipes. These are so great you could just stay home and pretend to camping just to makes these recipes.
Chicken Foil Dinners Recipe
For each foil dinner:
1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 potato, washed & sliced
sliced onion
3-4 fresh mushrooms, washed & sliced
6-8 stalks fresh asparagus, tough ends snapped off
salt, pepper, etc. as desired

Place the chicken breast on a large square of foil. Season chicken and add layers of sliced potato, mushrooms, onions and top with asparagus stalks. Wrap dinner 'butcher-style' and place chicken-side-down on hot coals, turning after about 20 minutes. After another 10 minutes or so, unwrap one dinner and slice chicken to test for doneness. If chicken is fully cooked - dig in!
