serves 6-8

1/2 lb. bacon
1 gallon zip-lock bag with 1 cup flour
5 chicken breasts
5 potatoes
10 carrots
1 large onion
1 can Mountain Dew soda
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat dutch oven by setting on bed of coals. Chop bacon into 1-inch pieces. Dice vegetables. Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise. Fry bacon in dutch oven until crispy. Remove bacon from dutch oven but leave grease. Shake chicken breasts in baggie of flour to coat. Cook in bacon grease to brown, about 5 minutes, turning a couple times. Pour vegetables, bacon, and Mountain Dew on top of chicken. Cover with lid and cook at 350° for 45 minutes with 3/4 of coals on lid. Using tongs or fork, lift chicken breasts so they are resting on top of vegetables. Sprinkle cheese over the chicken. Cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
