Dutch Oven Barbeque Pulled Chicken
Whenever you cook outdoors you want to be mindful of hygiene. Especially chicken is something you want to keep apart from other things on your chopping board. We usually bring one chopping board for meat and one for greens. You can keep your own system, just be sure that you keep it in mind.
Start by rubbing all of the spices all over the chicken. If you have the time you can leave it to rest and marinade for a little bit.
Add plenty of oil to the bottom of the dutch oven, and add the vegetables to the oven. Add the chicken and stir it over low heat.
Cook the chicken a little on each side, to create a shell on the breasts.
Add tomato, Barbeque sauce, and chicken stock to the mix.
Leave it to simmer over the campfire for about 2 hours. Turn the chicken over, about every 30 minutes. Keep an eye on how warm it gets – it is looks as though its boiling dry, you can add more water to the pulled chicken mix.
After two hours, remove all of the barbeque sauce and set it aside. Shred the chicken with two forks and stir it over the fire for about 3 minutes.
Add the barbeque sauce back in as you like it, or keep it on the side to be added individually.
Serve it up on a burger bun or a roll with some coleslaw. Enjoy.
