Two passionate Vanlife cooks and the creators of Vanlife Eats.

Us vanlifers love a one pan recipe. It’s handy if you only have one hob, and it also saves on washing up. What’s not to love? This recipe of smoky, spicy one pan chicken is a favourite of @campervancodgers. The great thing about this recipe is that you can adjust the spices to your tastes making it suitable for all. If you would like to make this a vegetarian or vegan option just change the protein option to tofu / jackfruit / halloumi / quorn etc
