From the Author: 
"This is one of my all-time favorite choices for takeout Chinese food. This version is simple enough to take camping and grill over hot coals."


  • 1 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 mandarin orange fruit cups, with juice
  • 1 cup thawed frozen peas
  • 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce


  1. Divide chicken evenly among prepared foil sheets. Top with rice, red pepper, green pepper, onion, broccoli, oranges and peas, dividing evenly. Drizzle with teriyaki sauce. Fold foil into tent-style packets and seal edges tightly.

  2. Place packets on hot coals and cook for 30 minutes, turning packets over occasionally until vegetables are tender and chicken is no longer pink.

  3. Tips: 

    Prepare the peppers, onions and broccoli at home and pack them in your cooler. They can all be combined in a plastic food storage bag.

    Mandarin orange fruit cups come in 4- or 6-count packages. The remaining cups make a great snack or breakfast side.

This chicken recipe sounds so delicious. I really love the various sauces you can use on chicken, but orange happens to be one of my favorites. I love that the recipe uses a lot of the stuff you already have at home. It makes it much easier to add it to the menu.
