Super Fast Chicken Freezer Meals

Freezer2Button

I decided to do a round of Freezer Meals this last week!  Originally, Jessica from Pretty Providence and I were going to do them together again, but I had a sick 2 year old and with her having a newborn baby girl, we decided not to risk it.  RSV is popping up all over the place right now in babies… and I didn’t want to chance her Nora getting sick.

All of these meals were pretty much a chicken and a sauce, so they were SO fast to put together.  These are all the type of meals that I will serve with Rice and a quick veggie.  I made 5 new recipes, plus 2 recipes from Freezer Meals from Round #1!  And, I made 2 of each recipe!  So, I ended up with 14 freezer meals in about 1 1/2 hours!  Can I hear a WOO WOO!!

All the recipes are ingredients for ONE Freezer Meal.  So, if you’re doing two, then you’ll need double what the typed recipe reads!

Recipe #1: French Chicken

I got this recipe from my sister, who got it from a friend.  I have made it a ton of times, but this was my first time putting it together for a Freezer meal!  It’ll be nice to have it all ready!  I generally just serve it with Rice!

FrenchChickenIngredients

4-6 Chicken Breasts (I use the Costco Pouches and generally 3 to 4 breasts is PLENTY for my family of 4)

1 can of Cranberry Sauce (I like Whole Berry best for this recipe)

8 oz of French Dressing

1 packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix

Mix Chicken, Cranberry Sauce, French Dressing and Lipton Onion Soup Mix in a Gallon Freezer Ziplock Bag.  After closing, take your hands and smash all the ingredients to combine.

To cook: Take the Freezer Meal out of the Freezer and hour before starting or run it under some room temperature water for about 30 seconds.  Dump meal in the a Crockpot and cook on Low for 4-6 hours!

Recipe #2: Teriyaki Chicken

This recipe is from my mother-in-law!  It’s a recipe that I generally bake, but have made using a crockpot before.  It’s one of my families favorites!

TeryakiChickenIngredients

6-8 Bonesless, Skinless Chicken Thighs

1 Cup Teriyaki Sauce

1 Cup Water

2/3 Cup Brown Sugar

3 Cloves Garlic

A few slices of of Ginger

Add all ingredients to a Freezer Gallon Ziplock Bag!  Don’t stres about trimming up the Chicken Thighs too much, it’s really not needed!  One of the reasons I love crockpotting Chicken Thighs is because the fat melts and only adds to the taste!!  Once bag is closed with all the air out use your hands to mix all the ingredients and make sure the Thighs are sitting in a good sauce!!

To cook: Take the Freezer Meal out of the Freezer and hour before starting OR run it under some room temperature water for about 30 seconds.  Dump meal in the a Crockpot and cook on Low for 4-6 hours!

Recipe #3: Sweet BBQ Chicken

I adapted this recipe from one that a friend shared with me from Just a Pinch Recipes.  If you decide to use a Sweet BBQ Sauce, then you’ll want to reduce the amount of Brown Sugar you use.

BBQChickenIngredients

4-6 Chicken Breasts

12 oz bottle of BBQ Sauce

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (I like mine really sweet, so I’ll usually do a little bit more then this)

1/4 Cup Vinegar

1/8 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper

1 tsp Garlic Powder

Once the chicken is cleaned, I like to rub it with the Cayenne Pepper.  But, if you’re in a hurry you can just add the Chicken to a Freezer Gallon Ziplock Bag and then add the rest of the ingredients.  Once bag is closed, use your hands to mash all the ingredients together!

To cook: Take the Freezer Meal out of the Freezer and hour before starting OR run it under some room temperature water for about 30 seconds.  Dump meal in the a Crockpot and cook on Low for 4-6 hours!

    Hi, I’m guessing these recipes are all for smaller families? I have teenagers and school age kids. So I would need to double these correct?

    • I probably would double them yes!! Thanks for your comment!

  • Jenn

    On the creamy chicken italian, is the italian seasoning a salad dressing/marinade seasoning? Or if not, what is it?

  • becca

    How many people is each set of ingredients for? I’ll only be cooking for me 😊

  • Jennifer
