Dutch Oven Chicken Pot Pie

~ Carmen

Some people keep it simple when camping with the standard hotdogs and hamburgers.  However  at our campsite we like to mix it up!  My favorite way to campcook  (over a campfire or using charcoal briquettes) is using a dutch oven (read Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love).

On our latest camping trip to DeGray Lake, Joe was in the mood for some chicken pot pie.  I have a recipe that I use at home that I figured would work well in a dutch oven.  Joe had three bowls, so we can assume that the dutch oven chicken pot pie was a success!
