(Please excuse the enormously huge photos!)
Last Saturday I was going to start my freezer cooking by just doing a few chicken meals. I had bought all my chicken at Meijer on sale last week and my fridge was overflowing so it was time to cook! My few meals turned into quite a few and I ended up doing a bit on Labor day.
This is Sesame Chicken. I marinated that most of the day and then Chris grilled it for me. After it cooled, I chopped it into chunks which I can use for salads, pitas, quesadillas, pretty much anything that I need cooked chicken for. I have about 3 meals of this in my freezer now.
This was super simple. Just mixed all the ingredients together and then divided them between two bags of chicken. Orange Teriyaki chicken x 2 for the grill. We're trying this tonight.
Peanut Satay~Just cut the chicken in chunks and then dump the marinade on top. This goes on kebab sticks for the grill.
3 meals of pork ribs browned slightly and ready for the crockpot and barbecue sauce.
12 Cheesy Chicken bundles, 3 meals for our family
Spicy Peanut Chicken x 1
Chicken Parmesan x 2~Still have to make the red sauce for this. I have 2 cans of 100oz + tomato products I need to use from Sam's.
This was another super simple crockpot meal for the freezer. I put raw chicken in the bottom of the crockpot and mixed the rest of the ingredients and dumped them on top. And it made a ton! 3 meals of Chicken Alfredo for our family.
Since cauliflower was super cheap last week, I ended up with 6 heads total that I washed, cut, and then boiled for a few minutes. Cauliflower x 6
I cooked more chicken in the crockpot for this, Parmesan-crusted Chicken Broccoli casserole. My crockpot was going constantly all day. I'd finish something, clean it out and dump the next batch in. Definitely should have borrowed a crockpot or two.
Breakfast burritos~these are almost gone already.
Chopping up 3 lbs of cooked bacon
I also made 2 meals of French steak and I have a couple more meals of cooked chicken, plus I did a bunch more corn this week. And I mixed up a huge batch of coconut chocolate chip cookie dough and divided it into 4 freezer bags. Our freezer is well-stocked!
