Crockpot Freezer Meals Chicken






crockpot freezer meals



Crockpot Freezer Meals are great. I love being able to pull a meal out of the freezer, put it in the oven or crockpot and not have to slave in the kitchen all day on those busy days when you just don’t have time to cook…or don’t feel like cooking.

Busy Moms need quick, easy solutions for the every day things that we do.

I had done freezer meals before but not quite this way. Crockpot Freezer Meals are so simple and so easy. I am loving my crockpot. Sometimes I think I need to buy an extra just so that I have 2 on hand. There are so many things you can make in a crockpot!

Anyway, on to the Crockpot Freezer Meals. If you haven’t read up on what this is all about, start at my Crockpot Freezer Cooking. Then come back and you can get going on the actual recipes.

This is a set of 4 Chicken recipes. You can combine and do more than 4 in one day if you’d like or just do the 4. I did 12 in one day and it was still super easy. I grouped them by meats for organization and planning. If you’d like to do all 12, you can also do my Crockpot Freezer Meals Hamburger and my Crockpot Freezer Meals Comfort Foods.
Freezer Bag Tips:

When prepping your Crockpot Freezer Meals, get your freezer bags out ahead of time. Write the Meal on the bag and instructions. After adding all ingredients, squeeze out as much air as you can, lay flat to freeze.

Cooking Tips:

You may have to adjust cooking times. I cooked all of the chicken ahead of time so all that is needed is for the meals to thaw out and for the other ingredients to cook. That may not take the time stated. All slow cookers/crockpots are also different so just watch your meals and adjust accordingly. Make sure to also check out my Bulk Cooking Tips.
