Campers' Casserole

Campers' Casserole

This came from a camping trip with friends where we cooked chicken in tin foil with pea pods, pineapple, and BBQ sauce. We loved it, and we started grilling this way at home, but I wanted to do something just as good, but easier - so I turned it into a casserole, adding the wild rice and layering it. Today my family loves it just as much as I do.
