Dutch Oven Sprite Chicken

I love it when camping season rolls around and it is time for some good dutch oven cooking. There is nothing like the taste of campfire cooking. This is another fabulous campfire cooking recipe using dutch ovens from my friend Ryan.

This recipe is commonly known as Sprite Chicken or Chicken Stew and it feeds about 20 people. You can modify this recipe to feed more if you cook in a 16-inch dutch oven or you can scale it down and cook in a smaller dutch oven.
