Chicken and Bean Dutch Oven Casserole

I really like to make this easy chicken and bean casserole Dutch oven recipe when we're out camping.

This is a great camping recipe; get it going in the morning, go off fishing or hiking or whatever you feel like doing, carry out phase two when you get back, rest awhile, and when you're ready for dinner - so is the casserole.

Try it. It's a keeper.
