Go to User Preferences
Go to add-ons -> enable Add Chain
Make a chain
Give it Rigid Body physics
Click each link -> Ctrl-Opt-Shift Move Origin to Center of Mass until each link is own piece

OR

Create a torus -> stretch it out until oval
Duplicate -> flip 90 degrees on horizontal axis
Keep duplicating until desired length of chain
Give a Rigid Body to each chain link

Play with slider settings until chain works as wanted.
Damping: Translation usually works better at high setting
Surface Response: Friction does well at medium/high setting
Sensitivity Margin is good at low setting
