Chicken and Bean Cassoulet

"Such an excellent dish - Youu can freeze it - After cooling in the refrigerator, place a piece of parchment paper directly on the stew to help prevent freezer burn and then cover with heavy-duty foil and this dish can be frozen up to 3 months. to reheat it, preheat oven to 325F. If frozen, place covered foil pan on a baking sheet and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Then uncover, remove the parchment, stir and bake for another 15 minutes. If thawed overnight in the refrigerator, bake covered for 30 minutes and uncovered (parchment removed) for 15 minutes longer. Sprinkle with parsley before serving."
