Camping Cola Chicken and Ziploc Fudge

Happy Labor Day!

My son Jacob had a 'last hurrah' campout under the stars this weekend since school starts on Wednesday. He wrapped up in a blanket by the fire and slept under the stars and had a great night with his friends in one of our fields. This got me thinking of the boys favorite Boy Scout Campout meals...there are many to share and our troop (especially the leaders like Mr MacDonald, Mr Moore, and Mr Metzner) are wonderful campfire cooks. I am often asked to come up with some new recipes to add to their repertoire.
Last year I sent the youngest scouts in our troop out on a weekend campout with this recipe for Cola Chicken. It is so very easy and the boys LOVE it. Not a lot of ingredients either so this is good!  I also gave them this simple quick "fudge" dessert.

Cola Chicken
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts(or chicken pieces if you would rather)
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 can cola (NOT diet)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

Place chicken in the dutch oven. Mix other ingredients together. Pour over chicken and flip chicken around to coat. Cover. Cook over med heat on campfire (or in oven) until chicken in done and no longer pink. You want it to be nice and tender...serve with sauce.

Ziploc Fudge
3 oz cream cheese
1 lb box powdered sugar
2 packets of cocoa
2 tbl butter
2   1 gallon ziploc bags

put all ingredients in one ziploc...squeeze out all air and seal it. put in the 2nd bag. squeeze out all air and seal(double bag will help prevent a mess if the bag or seal breaks) Now squish and squeeze until very well mixed.  Open bag, Spoon out and eat.
