Chicken-on-a-stick

This is actually a camping favourite because I can get it ready ahead of time and freeze it, and then by the time we're wanting to cook it it's mostly thawed. Then we can cook it over the fire or on the grill (or even in a pan in a pinch).

- some boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs (your choice), however much you think your family will eat
- wooden bamboo sticks
- salad dressing, either bottled or home made depending on your eating preferences and motivation. I suggest an oil-and-vinegar type like italian, greek, etc.

First, soak your bamboo sticks in water for a couple of hours. This will keep them from catching fire when you cook. Soak more than you need because you can always dry them out again and use later, but if you run out of sticks before chicken you're gonna be hootched.

Meanwhile, cube up your chicken into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl. Douse with a generous amount of dressing. Let it hang out in the fridge for awhile (the longer the better).

Once you're satisfied your sticks are sufficiently soaked as so not to be a fire hazard and you're chicken's done it's hanging out thing, start putting your chicken on the sticks. It's better not to make it too full (I tend to leave a generous inch or so on either end) or else it gets hard to handle. If you chicken bits are sort of thin and flat, it helps if you fold up your chicken so the stick goes through several times. Keep doing it until you run out of chicken and pray you took out enough sticks in step 1.

Then, cook. We love grilling them, but pretty much any method of heat works. Serve with baked potatoes or rice pilaf and a nice salad.

Freezing instructions: Pretty much the same, except you can skip the marinading step. I just thread the chicken on the sticks and put them in a long ziploc container, then dump the marinade on them and freeze. If I'm really lazy I'll even skip the soaking step, reasoning that enough moisture from the marinade/freeze/thaw cycle will be enough moisture to keep them from spontaneously combusting.
