Cranberry Almond Chicken with Couscous

serves 6-8 people

Ingredients:

3 lbs. boneless chicken breast, cut into strips or chunks
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth (1 small can)
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup brown sugar
2 boxes couscous (Near East Wild Mushroom worked well)
⅓ cup dried cranberries
⅓ cup sliced almonds
1 bunch of fresh asparagus


Directions:
Pour chicken broth into bottom of an oiled dutch oven. Add lemon juice, brown sugar, garlic, chicken, and the couscous flavor packets. Simmer 20-30 minutes until chicken is cooked. Then add the couscous, cranberries and almonds and recover for 5 minutes. Place the asparagus over the top of the meal and recover for 5 minutes; remove from heat. Don’t overcook the asparagus; it should be bright green when properly steamed.

The all time favorite from the boys and we make every camp out

Mountain Man Breakfast

Original (serves 4 - 5 people)
Regular (4 - 5 people)
Small (3 - 4 people)

cubed hash browns (we changed this to hash brown patties broken up are better)
10 oz
8 oz

cooked breakfast sausage
1 lb.
3/4 lb.

eggs
8 or 9 (2 per person)
7

milk
1/4 cup
3/8 cup

shredded cheese
2 cups
1 1/2 cups

Add onions, peppers, and/or mushrooms if desired.

Precook and drain the meat, or use pre-cooked sausages.
Chop the onions in advance if possible to save time and mess.
Spread hash browns in the bottom of dutch oven. If patties are used instead, these burn less if crumbled rather than whole.

Add sausage (cut into chunks) and other ingredients besides the cheese.

Mix milk with eggs and scramble. Pour over the mixture in the dutch oven.

8 to 10 coals top and bottom should produce the correct heat. Stack multiple ovens.

Bake about 45 minutes or until egg is not runny.

Add cheese over top for last 10 minutes.



Variants
Replace sausage with Italian sausage, add spinach.

Replace sausage with bacon, add broccoli.
