My father is a master chef over the campfire. I mean he can make gourmet dinners with nothing more than a skillet and some logs. I love that. And when I was a kid and on our family camping trips, silver turtles were a family favorite. I was looking at our pile of veggies the other night when it hit me. Silver turtles would be perfect combination of easy and healthy and fun.
Here’s what I did: I put a little bit of salad dressing (I used Italian, but I think honey mustard would taste good too) on some aluminum foil. Then I put a chicken breast on top and another little bit of dressing on top of the chicken. Next I just piled the chicken up with our veggies: carrots, peas (in the pods), and onion. I baked these in the over at 350 for 30 minutes, and then served them with a slice of tomato.
Of course the silver turtles of my childhood were more like steaming shepherd pies with hamburger and potatoes, but consider this the healthy, grown-up version. And next time, I’m going to use some of the CSA greens in there too.
Or if you don’t like the adult approach, you could always Julia-tize dinner and polka-dot your tomatoes with your peas.
