Chicken, Main Dishes, Summer Recipes
chicken, main dishes, summer
This is an easy freezer/skillet meal I acquired from my first freezer swap group. It makes a great light, summer meal.
1 lb chicken (I use tenderloins)
1 28 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 onion, chopped
2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic
Fresh basil, as much or as little as you like
1 frozen garlic bread (Texas Toast)
To Freeze: Cube chicken (I just leave the tenderloins whole) and place in freezer bag with ½ cup Italian Dressing (I just poured a bunch in).
Saute onions in olive oil. Add garlic. Stir in tomatoes. Take off of heat and cool slightly. Add basil. Pour into another freezer bag. Freeze both mixtures.
To Serve: Thaw chicken and tomato mixtures. Prepare garlic bread according to directions on box. Saute chicken in the dressing until no longer pink. Stir in tomato mixture. Serve chicken and tomato over the garlic bread or on the side.

We found our favorite garlic bread recipe a few years ago. My brother-in-law (thank you Chris!) made it for us one New Years and it is delicious.
This is a Paula Deen recipe so you shouldn’t be surprised to find lots of butter in it! I use loaves of fresh French bread from Publix’s bakery for this.
I only use about half the garlic butter mixture for one loaf. You can either freeze the extra garlic butter mixture to use later or spread it on another loaf, wrap in foil & freeze!
Please try it, you won’t regret it!

Today, my friend Kristen and I had a freezer cooking day. We made each recipe times four….two for each family.
Here is what we made:

So tired. So happy to have it all in my freezer.

I get questions often about Homemade Uncrustables. I made these uncrustables using my Pampered Chef Press N Seal. I could you give you a little tutorial, but there are several out there that are very good, which I will link to. I will say that I agree with 2 of the points the others mention: #1-use fresh bread, #2-put peanut butter on both sides of the bread.
This tutorial is fantastic! http://unsophisticook.com/homemade-uncrustables-sandwiches/
I like how Crystal uses the extra crust to make homemade croutons! I do this too. I’ll share my recipe tomorrow!

Last night, I got to hang out with some of the ladies of our local MOPS group. Each of the ladies assembled 4 freezer meals without the meat. The meat will be added at home. It was fun & simple. Here is what they made:
Cream Cheese Chicken
3 Packet Roast
As I told the ladies last night, my picky kids love all these recipes. Enjoy!

I set about to do a one hour cooking session today (like I mentioned in my podcast)…didn’t get to do it all at once in one hour…but I think total it took about an hour. I made 18 uncrustables & 4 dozen super power muffins (look in comments). Then, when I make dinner this afternoon, I am making stromboli…which I have guest blogged about before. But I won’t only make one…I will make 3 & freeze 2 of them. (like I also mention on my podcast) So, today, I’m filling my freezer with stuff for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners!
