PERFECT Summer Meal

By Sydney Hill

Things taste better when you're camping. It's a cold, hard, fact. At least, I think it is. It must be something to do with the fact that you're starving and there's no other food around. Although, being in the beautiful nature probably has something to do with it, too. It makes us more grateful.

Either way, these recipes are amazing. Even the ones written for inside can be adapted to make one amazing dutch oven winner.

8 to 10 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 pound bacon

1 (10 1/2-ounce) can cream of chicken soup

1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
