One of our very favorite things about summer is being able to cook outside over the fire. This Campfire Chicken Parmesan recipe is a yummy spin on traditional tin foil dinners. It’s so tasty and my kids just can’t get enough of it. It’s easy to whip these up and place them on the campfire for the whole family to enjoy.
