Freezer Meal Friday- Chicken Crockpot Freezer Meals

We are entering a busy season of our life.  It’s the last six weeks of class at Texas Tech so Dr. Smartypants is really busy, and sometimes gets home late.  I am spring cleaning and preparing for another garage sale.  I am in purge mode!  E is a never stopping whirlwind of toddler craziness.  There are days I just don’t feel like cooking!

Enter freezer meals!

The preparation takes a bit of time, but is well worth it.  When you are ready to cook it, simply pull it out of your freezer and let it thaw in the sink for a short time.  When I am in a bit of a hurry, I will fill up the sink with warm water and let the bag sit in it to help it thaw faster.  It doesn’t have to be completely thawed though to put it in the crockpot.  It just needs to be able to break apart a bit.  The heat of the crockpot will take care of the rest.

For the next four weeks, I will be running a new series: Freezer Fridays!  Each Friday, I will feature the freezer meals that I made that week and I will include the recipe and instructions.   My hope is that this will make your life a bit easier and that it will be a blessing to you!
