Camp Chicken Cordon Blue

When I was a teenager on a family camping trip up the Rogue River in Oregon, my Dad challenged my sister and me to see who could make the best meal. Since there was 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 family's campouts.
