Chicken Under a Stone

"Chicken under a brick” is a popular way to cook chicken as the pressure from the weight of the brick (or, in this case, a stone) helps push the heat up through the meat quickly, keeping it juicy while making the skin crisp.

What you need:

skillet or cast iron pan 
a rock — find one at your campsite or on a hike

Season your chicken with salt and pepper then place it skin side down in the pan, adding in a few cloves of garlic and sprigs of rosemary for extra flavour. Cover the chicken with foil then place your stone on top. Place the pan on the grill over medium-hot fire for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is browned and crispy.

Serve with biscuits and grilled Brussels sprouts.

Tip: Freeze your chicken in a bag before you head out on your trip. That way you won’t have to feel like you have to eat it the night you arrive.
