This recipe for grilled chicken breasts and melted cheese stuffed baked potatoes is perfect for a casual dinner around the campfire. The ingredients are simple and the method is straightforward, but the results are amazing!
For the chicken
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon Vegeta (a seasoning blend)
- 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
For the potatoes
- 2 large potatoes
- 10 mushrooms, sliced
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- A few cheese slices
Step 1. Marinate the Chicken
- Combine 2 chicken breasts with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon Vegeta, 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon dry oregano in a bowl.
- Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Step 2. Boil the Potatoes
- Fill a large pot with around 1 liter of water and bring it to a boil.
- Add 2 potatoes and cook until they are slightly soft.
Step 3. Prepare the Filling
- While the potatoes are cooking, slice 10 mushrooms and chop 1 green pepper into small pieces.
Step 4. Fill and Season the Potatoes
- Once the potatoes are slightly soft, remove them from the pot and cut a slit on top of each potato.
- Add 2 tablespoons of butter to each potato and fill with the mushroom and green pepper mixture.
- Season with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, wrap each potato tightly in aluminum foil, and place them back in the fire to continue cooking.
Step 5. Prepare and Cook the Chicken
- Using a kitchen hammer, pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness. This can expedite the cooking process and ensure that the spices permeate the meat thoroughly.
- Heat a grill pan with a generous amount of olive oil and cook the chicken, flipping occasionally, until cooked through and browned.
Step 6. Add Cheese to the Potatoes
- Once the chicken is cooked, remove the potatoes from the fire and open the aluminum foil.
- Add a few cheese slices to each potato, wrap them back up in foil, and return them to the fire until the cheese is melted.
Step 7. Serve and Enjoy
- Slice the chicken into long strips and serve with the warm, cheesy potatoes.
- Sit back, relax, and enjoy the delicious flavors and peaceful sounds of nature.
