Headed out for an adventure in your RV? Try out these simple summertime RV recipes! They can be made in the RV oven or cooked over the campfire so you can prepare them no matter what’s going on outside! These recipes are simple to make and sure to please!
Lemon Pepper Chicken & Rice
This is a meal in a packet so you don’t have to worry about what to make with it, although the addition of the corn on the cob recipe that comes next blends perfectly! You can grill this, make it in the fire, or pop it in the oven!
4 Chicken breasts
2 C. uncooked instant rice
1 3/4 C. chicken broth
1 C. julienne cut carrots
1 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1 lemon sliced
Heavy duty tin foil
1. Heat the grill or campfire until it’s burned down to coals, or fire up the oven to 400°.
2. In a bowl, mix the chicken broth and the rice and set it aside while you prepare the rest. Make sure you give it enough time to absorb the broth.
3. Lay out 4 sheets of foil large enough to make a packet, and spray them with cooking spray.
4. Lay a chicken breast on each foil sheet and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasonings and salt and then place the lemon slices on top of the chicken.
5. Stir the carrots into the rice and spoon it around each chicken breast.
6. Fold the foil over in the center and roll it down. Then roll up the edges, making sure it’s tight enough that nothing will leak out.
7. Place in the fire, over the grill, or in the oven for 15-20 min or until the chicken is cooked through.
You now have a foil packet dinner that the whole family will love! It’s light enough that you won’t feel too stuffed but hardy enough to stick with you for camping activities!
Cooler Corn on the Cob
This recipe is great whether you want a small amount for your family or are making a huge batch for guests. The method cooks it slowly but makes it really hard to over cook!
Shucked corn on the cob
Boiling water (enough to cover the corn)
1. After you shuck the corn, place it in a clean cooler.
2. Boil the water and pour it over the corn. Ensure there is enough to cover it.
3. Close the cooler and let it sit for at least 30 min.
After 30 min you will have perfectly cooked corn that can last up to 2 hours in the cooler. Keep the ears in there as you eat so that 2nds will be hot when you want them. And you will want them!
Sometime the summer heat calls for something cool that you don’t have to cook. This delicious and creamy fruit salad will hit the spot on those hot days!
1 1/3 C. chopped apple
1 1/4 C. mandarin oranges
1 C. pineapple chunks
1 C. halved grapes
1 C. mini marshmallows
1/2 C. vanilla Greek yogurt
1 tsp. lemon juice
1. Place the apple chunks in a large bowl and toss them with the lemon juice.
2. Add the rest of the fruit, the marshmallows, and the yogurt to the bowl and stir until everything is coated.
3. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Sandwiches are another great alternative to cooking, but you can get sick of the same old boring ones pretty quick. This is a deli-style sandwich that uses lawash bread instead of standard bread! You can use any type of lunchmeat you want so everyone can have just what they like!
Dill veggie dip
1. Lay out the bread and spread some of the veggie dip on it and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
2. Place your lettuce and tomato on the bread followed by the lunchmeat.
3. At one end, lay a pickle spear across the bread and roll it up into the middle!
Chili Cheese Fries
Whether you want a meal or a snack, this is a lovely dish that will make your mouth water! This is like camping and carnival food all loaded into one! You just can’t pass these up!
Frozen french fries
Heavy duty foil
1. Heat your grill or campfire to glowing coals or the oven to 425°.
2. Pull out a sheet of foil and spray it with cooking spray.
3. Place a layer of fries on the foil and then fold up the packet.
4. Cook the packet for about 15 minutes.
5. Once the fries are browned, open up the packet and add chili and shredded cheese.
6. Return to the grill, fire, or oven until the chili is heated and the cheese is melted.
Now you have a tasty snack you can enjoy that will hold you over until breakfast!
