[dutch oven chicken pot pie]

Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup
Campbell's Cream of Celery Soup
1/2 cup 1% milk
Chicken, cooked and cubed (1 boneless skinless breast per person, recipe below)
1 medium onion, diced
Canned peas, (small can with the pull top)
3 carrots, (cleaned, peeled and sliced)
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Canned Biscuits

Line a clean dutch oven with foil (for easy cleanup).  
Prepare 30 briquettes.  Place a large piece of foil on the ground where you'll place the dutch oven, (should be a fairly flat and clean area).  Gather all of the briquettes on the foil on the ground and place the Dutch Oven on top of all the briquettes.
Heat soups and milk in the dutch oven, stirring occasionally, (a large wooden spoon is best).

Stir in cooked chicken, onion, peas, carrots, salt and pepper. Let the mixture come to a boil, then remove the Dutch Oven from the coals.  Open the can of biscuits and place the biscuits over mixture.  Dot each biscuit with butter.  

Arrange the briquettes so 6 are on the foil (to be under the oven), and 18 are set aside to be placed on top.  (You'll have extra - this is so you can choose the best briquettes.)  Put the lid on the Dutch Oven and place over the 6 briquettes.  Carefully place the 18 briquettes on the lid.  Bake for 45 minutes, or until brown on top, rotating the dutch oven 45 degrees every 15 minutes or so.  Let rest and prepare each serving with one or two biscuits per person. 

[erin's master recipe for cooked chicken breast]
Skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil

Place the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet (or large frying pan) until each is about 1/4 inch thick.  
Heat a small amount of olive oil (about a tsp per breast) in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  Once the pan is hot, place the breasts in the pan and cook about 6 minutes per side, or until each side is golden brown.  When both sides are browned, place them on a large piece of aluminum foil.  Carefully fold the foil around the chicken so they are fully enclosed in a foil package.  Let the chicken rest in the foil on the counter for 20 minutes.  After 20 minutes: serve, slice or chill for another use.  (For this recipe above, cube the chicken and chill until ready to pack for camping.  Keep chilled with your cold food until ready to use.)
