This Low Country recipe is easy for a dutch oven at camp or for a casserole at home in the oven. I made it yesterday over our backyard pit. Yes the weather was cold out but putting a wind screen around the oven got 'er done. The crew approved the concoction.

Tip: If you make your rice in large batches ahead of time like we do it will cut your prep in half. When we go on a road trip, we take large batches of cooked rice and cooked macaroni in zipper bags. Make meal prep easier and gives us more time for fun.

Tip 2: You don't have to "toast" your rice. It's good but not necessary.

Chicken Bog
Serves 8-10

INGREDIENTS
• 1 whole chicken
• 8 cups water
• 2 cups long-grain white rice
• 2 yellow onions, 1 chopped, the other cut in half
• 1 tomato, finely chopped
• 1 medium carrot, finely chopped
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
• Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
PREPARATION
1. Add water, chicken, and halved onion to a large pot and bring to a boil.
2. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and set aside to cool. Reserve 4 cups of cooking liquid (chicken stock).
3. While chicken cools, heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high. Add onions, carrots, and tomato and cook until beginning to soften, stirring occasionally, about 4-5 minutes.
4. Add garlic and rice, and cook until fragrant and rice begins to toast, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes.
5. Stir in 4 cups cooking liquid/stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover and simmer until rice is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
6. While rice cooks, remove skin from chicken and chop or pick meat into pieces.
7. When rice is finished, stir in chicken pieces and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!

Real Food.......what a concept. So many people eat out of boxes and packages now-a-days. Sounds like a winner for sure

Yep definitely a winner. Once you get some knife skills and a decent food processor you whip up a homemade meal in the same amount of time it takes to do box dinners.
