Freezer Cooking - Chicken Recipes Day 1

After a week of "what do you want for dinner tonight" and no easy answer, I decided it was time to get the freezer stocked back up. I decided to keep it simple and did only chicken recipes this weekend. I shopped on Saturday, that way I would have all of Sunday to prepare the meals. Before I could do all of this I first gathered the recipes I wanted to try, made my shopping list and created the labels to put on the bags.

For side dishes or to complete a meal:
Veggies (like the steam fresh veggies)
Fettuccine Noodles
Spaghetti Noodles

That night, boil 10 chicken breasts until done, about 30 minutes. Shred or cube 6 breasts and put in the fridge to use tomorrow.

In a gallon sized baggie add the following:
6 tablespoons honey
5 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Shred or cube your remaining 4 chicken breasts and put in the honey marinade baggie, mix up and put in the fridge until tomorrow.

Make labels to put on each meal

Stay tuned...the next post will show what I made.
