Chicken Wraps

If you’re wanting healthy camping food, it doesn’t get much better than a chicken wrap. All you need is a packet of flour tortillas, fresh chicken, and a few different fresh vegetables.

 

Cucumber, tomatoes, pepper, and onion is a wonderful combination to add to a chicken wrap, and your body will enjoy the nourishment. If you don’t eat chicken, a beef or vegetable wrap is every bit as good.

Chicken or Chickpea Salad

If you make chicken wraps for lunch, it’ll be a breeze to put together this great healthy camping dinner. It needs all of the same ingredients, so if you have any leftovers from the wraps, this is a good chance to finish it all up.

If you don’t eat chicken, chickpeas are a great source of protein and add a little extra substance to a salad. And all you need for a dressing is a little olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Couldn’t be simpler.

Easy Butter Chicken

If you’re looking for something warm and comforting, this meal will tick all of your boxes. If you’re aiming for the simplest option, buy butter chicken paste at your local grocer, so that you don’t need to pack in a bunch of spices.

Then all you need is chicken, garlic, onions, and cream. Serve it over rice for a hearty meal. It’s perfect if you’re traveling in the winter months, as it will heat you up nice and quickly.
