Chicken Casserole Ole’

This casserole assembles quickly and can be a ‘Make Ahead’ dish for a camping adventure or put together quickly at your camping destination if you have a convection oven, toaster oven or a heavy cast iron skillet available.

The flavor combinations make for a great tasting, satisfying meal and the leftovers freeze well for up to 3 months in freezer ziplock bags.
