Ryan’s Famous Dutch-Oven Chicken – behind the scenes!

Hello all, it was a great weekend full of activities at the Arter house. . .and after a day of boating I decided that a little time in the backyard cooking would be a great way to finish off the weekend. So I decided to break in my new dutch oven that I got for my birthday last year. This new oven that I got is a size 12 (I already had a size 10) and it’s big. So I decided on “Ryan’s famous chicken and rice” to see how this new unit performed. Here’s a breakdown of the evening:

Firstly, you need to get your coals going. I use a disposable aluminum tray and light my coals inside of it. I used my gas grill as a workstation which is very helpful. If you’re on the campsite, just do all of this on the ground!

Get the coals going until they are grey and hot!

Next, you need to prepare your ingredients. Chicken breasts and legs (Or just cut up one whole chicken), 3 cans of cream of mushroom soup, 2 cups dry uncooked rice, 1 1/2 cups of water, 1/8 cup of minced garlic, 1/4 cup hot salsa, 1 package of onion soup mix.

Prepare your ingredients while the coals are getting started.

Once your coals are good and hot, dump them into the pan and place your clean dutch oven over the coals. You want the bottom to get nice and hot. Add a little vegetable oil and then brown your chicken. Turn frequently.

Brown your chicken with a little bit of cooking oil.

Once you have the chicken in place and sizzling, add the garlic and continue to brown the chicken for about 10 minutes!

At this stage, things are relly starting to smell good!

Once the chicken is browned, transfer it all to a plate, then pour in your uncooked rice.

Evenly coat the bottom of the oven with the rice.

Then layer your chicken back on top of the rice and spread the onion soup mix over the chicken.

The soup mix adds a ton of flavor!

Next, combine the cans of cream of mushroom soup and the water. Pour that over the chicken.

At this point, I seem to get very hungry.

Now place the cover on the oven and put 17 coals on top, leaving about 8 coals underneath. If you find that you have too many coals, just push the excess off to the side of your aluminum pan.

Hot coals are the key to success!

Now we let this cook. About 45 minutes. It’s a good time to read a book! Sitting by the oven is amazing because the smells are out of this world.

Yes, it's a marketing book. I always have Mission Repair on the mind!

Here’s the oven, 45 minutes later, taken into the kitchen for serving. I could see the chicken falling off the bone, and the rice was fluffy and full of goodness.

Chicken and rice, ready for the family.

I made some corn on the cob and flaky biscuits. Together with the chicken and rice we had a complete yummy meal with a heck of a presentation! I have to admit that I almost didn’t take this picture because I was so ready to dig in!

The special of the day.

The end result? A home cooked meal that the family could enjoy. Dutch oven cooking is just a fun way to get involved with your cooking and the results are typically fun and delicious. We normally keep these recipes for the campground, but I was just feeling like a little outdoor cooking last night.

So there you have it. I don’t just love running Mission Repair 😉 I also love cooking, the outdoors and spending quality time with the family. Want to share your dutch oven recipes with me? I’ll cook them up and add them to the blog too!

OK, I’ve got to get back to work. I hope you all had a great weekend too and I’ll be back in touch later with some great news from Mission Repair, home of the “Got Repair” lifetime benefits.

Happy Monday, Ryan
