Dutch Oven Chicken and Vegetables Dinner

Site Disclosure - As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

This is a low-carb recipe depending on what vegetables you use.

Last weekend we went camping and ate the most incredible baked chicken and vegetables recipe. It was inspired by our camping friends, Robin and Brad.

There are several ingredients involved but it is so effortless that anyone can make it. We love how this recipe lets you roast chicken with vegetables in the same pan.

This camping recipe can be customized with your favorites. Just add a few spices for an uncomplicated prep.

Like any Dutch Oven Camping Recipes, you need to prepare charcoal. We use a charcoal chimney to prep the coals for our Dutch oven.


Dutch Oven Chicken and Potatoes Recipe

This Dutch oven-roasted chicken with vegetables recipe is made with chicken and your favorite vegetables. We used chicken thighs, sweet potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms.

Our spices included onion flake, although we have also made it with real onions.

Outside of chopping up some vegetables, this is a dump and sprinkle recipe.

How to Roast Chicken and Vegetables While Camping

We carefully layered each ingredient, but you can just drop them in any order. The video you see playing shows our prep steps.

We prefer to put the vegetables that take the longest to cook on the bottom.

This Dutch oven chicken thighs and vegetables recipe surpassed our Campfire Roasted Chicken as our favorite oven roasted chicken with vegetables recipe. You really cannot mess it up!

We will definitely be making this chicken vegetable recipe on every camping trip from now on. We will probably make it with the same exact veggies each time.

It is so simple but so good. We need to try this dutch oven dinner at home.

update: We made this baked chicken and vegetables in the oven at home at it was pretty good!

I would not make it in any other container because the cast-iron Dutch oven really adds to the taste.

Doesn't this look tasty? You will also love our Meatloaf-Stuffed Vegetables and our Cheesy Green Chile Chicken recipes.
