RECIPE BACKSTORY
When I was in my 20's on a family camping trip up in Smokies in East Tennessee, my husband had challenged me to “who can make the best meal”. Since there is no electricity or running water along the way, we were limited. I wanted to make my favorite Chicken Cordon Blue so I modified a recipe and came up with what is now a tradition for my own families camp outs
