Camp Oven Roast Chicken


I love how easy it is to cook camp oven roast chicken, it doesn’t have to be difficult, keep the flavors simple.

This recipe was cooked on my Ozpig using the bottom heat from the Ozpig, and the top heat was using some heat beads that I got hot in the belly of the Ozpig and then used long-handled tongs to place them on top of the camp oven.
