Cajun Jambalaya

Camping, Eat clean, Summer,Meal ideas, Camp food, Open fire cooking, Eat clean camping, summer vacation, Sara Stakeley, Sarastakeley.com,
Serves: 4
Makes: 6 cups
Hands-on time: 20 minutes
Total time: 65 minutes or longer depending on fire!! 

Be sure to set aside room in your cooler for the chicken and other refrigerated items!
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/2 lb raw shrimp, 26/30 size, peeled and deveined, tail on
  • 4 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 all-natural low-sodium turkey sausage, sliced
  • 1/2 medium white onion, diced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, stem and seeds removed and discarded, diced
  • 1 rib celery, diced
  • 1 1/2 medium vine-ripe tomatoes, cored and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp salt-free Cajun seasoning
  • 1 cup all-natural instant brown rice
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil cooking spray
INSTRUCTIONS:


  1. Get a good fire going and let it burn down so you have a small flame with lots of hot coals! 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss together all ingredients except cooking spray, mixing well until combined. You can prep this ahead of time and save in a container for your cooler ( leave the chicken breast, shrimp, sausage in a separate ziplock bag cut up to add later!!) Add rice before cooking!! 
  3. Prepare 2 foil pouches. Spray each piece of foil with cooking spray. Divide mixture evenly among both pieces of foil and seal.
  4. Place pouches on a rack of fire you want a good flame but not a high flame!! Leave on rack for  45 minutes or until rice and proteins are fully cooked. 
  5. (NOTE: When cooked, rice will be soft and proteins will be firm and opaque.) To test when done, carefully open 1 pouch and taste a few grains of rice from the center of the pouch. If necessary, close pouch and return to oven for 5 more minutes.
  6. Carefully open pouch and pour mixture into a large serving bowl; serve immediately.

Makes ~6
Ingredients
Be sure to set aside room in your cooler for the chicken and other refrigerated items!
  • 2 chicken breasts (~1 lb)
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 whole wheat pitas
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 stalk romaine lettuce, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • Your choice of tzatziki sauce from your local grocer
Seasoning Ingredients
I recommend combining all spices in a single container prior to departure!
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Salt and black pepper
Directions
  1. Slice chicken breast into 1-inch pieces (strips or cubes, whichever you prefer).
  2. Place chicken in marinating bag with olive oil and spices. Mix in bag until chicken is evenly coated with marinade. Marinate for as long as possible before cooking.
Tip: complete steps 1-2 above prior to departure to save time and get extra chicken marination!
  1. Transfer chicken to several tin foil packets, sealing and placing over campfire or grill. Cook through, usually about 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken breasts reaches 165 degrees F. While chicken is cooking prepare vegetables.
  2. Assemble: Load pita with chicken, lettuce, tomato, and onion. Wrap in foil and warm over fire if desired. Add in tzatziki sauce before serving.
  3. Enjoy

CROCK POT
