RV Cooking: Campfire Foil Packs

One of our favorite things about traveling in our Leisure Time RV’s is the cooking! We see a lot of food being made by RVers, but one of our favorite campfire dishes are foil packs.  The best part about this recipe is that you can prepare all of your preferred ingredients at home, before you set off to your destination, for an easy and quick meal. Just chop up and mix together the following ingredients beforehand, and store them in your cooler until you’re ready to throw ‘em over the fire! Be mindful of the raw chicken though, and don’t let it sit for too long before cooking. Recipe yields 4 foil packs.


  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast meat – cubed
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 4 small potatoes, cubed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced


  1. In a large bowl, or in a large zip-top bag if you are preparing this at home, combine your chicken cubes, onions, mushrooms, yellow and red bell peppers, garlic if you prefer, and cubed potatoes.
  2. Next, pour the olive oil and lemon juice over your meat and veggies, and mix well.
  3. Evenly divide the mixture between 4 large square sheets of aluminum foil. Cover each with an additional sheet of aluminum foil, and roll up all four edges tightly. For safety’s sake, wrap each packet again securely in another sheet of foil to help keep the juices and flavors in as well as to avoid losing any of your ingredients in the cooking process.
  4. Cook the foil packs on the hot coals of your campfire until the chicken is fully cooked through and the potatoes are tender. The entire cook time should take around 40 minutes, give or take the amount and size of your ingredients.

There you have it. A great RV cooked meal with healthy protein and vegetables made right over your campfire! Know of any other great campfire recipes?
