RV Kitchen Recipes

Ok. I’m not going to lie, I love my RV kitchen. Finally, a kitchen I can handle. Some days all three burners are going and the oven is lit. And since I am not lying, other days the kitchen is more of a decorative piece and the local pub is doing all the cooking.

It’s possible to use your RV kitchen to make delicious meals and family favorites. I tend to keep things simple, but I cook more in my RV kitchen than I ever did in my sticks and bricks.

If you are looking to spice up your tiny RV kitchen, I reached out to a few fellow Road Life Project RVers to share one of their favorite, original recipes. So here goes!!

RV Adobo Chicken

This recipe comes to use from RV S.W.A.T. (Seasonal Work And Travel). If you are new to RV cooking, I recommend starting with this recipe.

Before you get started, make sure that your RV is equipped with the proper kitchen gear. If you are just starting out, outfitting your kitchen can be one of the hardest things. So, I have a shortlist for this specific recipe.
