A camping recipe from David. This is a simple recipe and a fun way to grill chicken. For this recipe I use a Dutch oven lid for a grill. If you don’t have a Dutch oven, a charcoal or gas grill will work.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 fresh squeezed lemon
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • fresh ground pepper


Here's a great way to grill chicken using the lid of a Dutch oven. First prepare your charcoals and, while they are getting ready, marinate your chicken in the juice of one lemon. When ready, place approximately 25 charcoal briquettes on your cooking surface. I used a Dandy stand. Invert a lid holder in the center of the briquettes, and then place an inverted Dutch oven lid on the lid holder. Allow a few minutes for the lid to heat up, then add a pat of butter and begin grilling the chicken. At this point, I add lots of fresh ground pepper. Cook until done, about 15 minutes per side.

On the grill simply coat the chicken lightly with oil, add the pepper to the lemon, and marinate. Cook on a hot grill for about 10-15 minutes per side.
