    This was pretty good chicken! My first meal with the can cooker.
    Will definitely eat it again.

    This is our “Go To” meal when we arrive late at a campground. You can fix the sauce mix ahead of time and it’s very easy to get going while you are setting up. It’s a great meal!

    Made this for my first recipe. It wasn’t as pretty as this photo but it was super “fall of the bone” chicken. I put potatoes, and carrots on top of my chicken. I also used chicken leg quarters that I split in half. Was very satisfied with my new kitchen pot.
