Dutch Oven Chicken with Bacon and Veggies

Dutch oven dinners are always a fun twist on a 
summer barbecue. One of the best things about Dutch ovens are their versatility and ability to cook indoors and outdoors with them. We use our dutch oven year round, not just in the summer. This is an easy recipe my husband grew up eating, but one I was unfamiliar with, but have come to love!

1/2 lb. bacon, chopped
1-2 large onions, chopped
2 chicken breasts, diced 
3-4 carrots, chopped
3-4 large potatoes, chopped
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup grated cheese
seasoning salt

Heat the dutch oven on the stovetop, and fry the bacon till half way done. Add onion and sauté slightly. (No need to drain bacon grease). Shake the chicken with some flour and seasoning salt till covered, and add to pot, and sauté chicken till cooked through. Add carrots and potatoes, and place lid on pot. Cook 30 min, at 400 in oven. Add broccoli and cheese, and replace lid. Cook for 10 more min. This fills a large dutch oven, so you may want to cut the recipe, or just invite the neighbors over.
