Freezer meals!

Here's the freezer meals we did last time but also some I love! And as you can tell we cook with a lot of chicken around here!

Sweet n sour meatballs
- For our family I did 20meatballs in a ziplock bag plus the sauce, so all you do a chuck it in a crock pot. Tip: meatballs will go on sale at M&m meatshop for $10 and its a box of 120 (otherwise its $8 for 60 at walmart).

Chicken pot pie - This is soo yummy and easy to do. Ive used the premade pie crusts and made our own, either way works great!

Cafe Rio -  Buy one of those $10 giant pork roasts from costco and cut it into 3 chunks and have cooking in 3 crockpots the whole time your doing your freezer meals. Cook it in salsa and rootbeer. Shred it all up and divide it into ziplock bags. Then all you have to do is pull out of the freezer and throw in the crock pot to put on rice or make cafe rio!

Chicken enchilida's -Freeze this uncooked, it cooks better that way.

Buffalo Chicken - Do 1 1/2 chicken breasts and the sauce all thrown into a ziplock bag. We used fresh chicken.

Lasanga - Use whatever recipe you like its such an easy one to pull out of the oven and cook for an hour!

Chicken Parmesan - This one is a little tricker to do if you do it with frozen chicken, found it easier to do with fresh.

Chicken taco chili -  Throw it all into a ziplock bag so all you have to do is throw it into a crock pot for the afternoon! Shred the chicken after you've thrown it in the crockpot.

Things that make it so much easier

- buy everything disposable from the dollarstore, makes clean up soo much easier and makes the meals go so much faster! We spent about $20 for all our tinfoil containers, ziplock bags, parchment paper between 4 people its so worth it!

- assembly line the meals.

- chicken is cheapest at save on foods.
