Easy camping cooking | Recipe Healthy chicken wraps
Camping is a great way to leave the mundanity of everyday life and to get back in touch with nature. Keeping it simple and back to basics is one of the appeals of camping cooking, while you don't need to pack a hoard of ingredients, it doesn't need to be boring either!
This recipe is a crowd pleaser and doesn't involve a monumental task of preparing or skills to produce a flavoursome and impressive fireside cook up.
Make zip-lock bags your friend. I cannot recommend this enough! They are a great way to get all your prep done, throw into the esky and all ready for cooking once you get to your campsite, giving you more time to go and explore the tranquil surrounds!

This recipe is my recent trip to the Cox's River, off the Six Foot Track in the Blue Mountains National Park in New South Wales. While it was a scorcher of a day, I didn't do the track but did explore the nearby Bowtells Swing Bridge and the stunning crystal clear waters of the Cox's River.
