Category Archives: Freezer Cooking
Yesterday we went to a local farmers market and found a great buy. Strawberries for $1.00 a quart. We bought 8 quarts. Want to guess what I will be making today? Recipe and pictures to follow later today.
When I did my last freezer cooking day I made these Crockpot Chicken Fajitas and they are definitely a hit here. The meat is so soft after cooking in the crockpot all day and it has lots of flavor too. All I have to do tonight is pull a bag of the meat out of the freezer and heat it and prepare the toppings. Having meals in the freezer makes busy days so much easier and also cuts down on the times I call the pizza place right up the road and order dinner in. What are you having for dinner?
Crockpot Chicken Fajitas
6 whole chicken breasts
2 ¼ ounces taco seasoning package
1 ½ jar salsa, 8 ounce jar
1 ½ whole medium sized onion peeled and sliced
3 whole bell peppers any color chunked up
Place chicken in a single layer on the bottom of the crock pot. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the chicken and then pour the jar of salsa over it. On top of the chicken spread out the onion and peppers. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Take 2 forks and shred the chicken before serving. Serve with your favorite taco and fajita toppings.
One day this week two friends and I got together and did up 100 pounds of chicken. Yes you read that right 100 pounds!! We did it all in approximately 6 – 7 hours. Not sure if we were sane for tackling that much but I love all the meals we got out of it. On those busy days or those days when you just can not think of what to make for dinner, it is so nice to open the freezer and find something to pull out. Here are some of the things we made:
Chicken Buffalo Casserole
Chicken Brocoli Bake
