Glam-ping Gourmet: Asian Barbecue Night

Ma loves to cook when we are camping...well, it's really "glam-ping" the way we camp...so I guess I can say Ma is a Glam-ping Gourmet.  BOL

One of her favorite dinners to cook is an Asian Barbecue, which usually consists of some Asian-marinated (Korean, Szechuan, etc.) chicken kabobs, Korean cucumber salad and rice noodles.  With a little prep at home before we leave, it is a simple dinner to cook on the first evening in camp. 

Home Prep

Chicken Kabobs, 1-2 days before heading out:  Cube some boneless chicken breast and place it in a zip lock baggie.  Add the marinade of your choosing to the bag with the chicken;  Ma likes either Korean or Szechuan marinade because they are a bit spicy but you could also use a Garlic Ginger or whatever you like best.  Squish the air out of the bag, seal and place in the freezer (so it will slowly defrost in your camp cooler).

Korean Cucumber Salad, 1-2 days before heading out
1-2 seedless cucumbers, thinly sliced
1-2 tsps. sesame oil
2-3 tsps. rice vinegar
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. sugar
1 scallion or green onion, chopped
1-2 tsps. red pepper flakes (like you use on pizza) - can add more or less for desired heat

Mix all ingredients in sealable bowl/container.  Chill in refrigerator.  (The longer the salad sits the more the heat builds.)

Cooking your Camp Dinner

Chicken Kabobs Recipe
Marinated Chicken
1-2 red bell peppers, cut into approximately 1 inch squares
1 red onion, sliced in half and cut into quarters

Alternately place chicken, red bell pepper and red onion onto kabob skewers.  Cook either on grill (charcoal or portable propane) or grill grate over camp fire until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees F. 

Rice Noodles
Meanwhile, on camp stove or on grill grate over camp fire, bring pot of water with some rice noodles to boil until noodles expand.  Drain.

Serve chicken and veggies either on skewers or remove from skewers onto plate with or without rice noodles (rice noodles can be served on side as well).  Open your container of cucumber salad.

Dig in and enjoy your Asian Barbecue!
