couple of potatoes cut in chunks
carrot cut in chunks
chopped garlic - as much as you like
1 large chopped onion
4 tablespoons tomato paste
350 gm can coconut cream

corn flour
salt and pepper to taste

METHOD
Cut chicken in bite size pieces. Place chicken, peas, potatoes, carrots and onion in camp oven. Mix together coconut cream, tomato paste, garlic and water. Pour over other ingredients in camp oven. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook in 12" camp oven with ten Heat Beads® underneath and fourteen Heat Beads® on top for an hour. Thicken with corn flour and serve on a bed of rice.

All in the pot ready to go

Derek you didn't put the coconut cream in the ingredients list, and you could easily make this into a curry by adding a tablespoon or two of red curry paste (add to your taste) for a mild red curry. Chicken doesn't need much time to become tender but if you would like to simmer it for a while I would brown the chicken first to keep in the juices so it doesn't go dry.

The coconut cream 's right there next to the tomato paste - just not on it's own line.

Looks good Derek!

Looks good Derek, will have to put it in my recipe collection and give it a go.

Actually think I might try it in the Dream Pot.

It will pay for itself in a very short time. Apart from the 10 mins or so on the stove to start the process there is no other energy required.

AND it is not a replacement for a camp oven.
