Honey Garlic Chicken

Leave a comment

We’ve been enjoying this new recipe recently.   Usually, I am the only person in my family who eats carrots.  With this recipe, the carrots soak in the marinade and it makes them so flavorful!  My husband and oldest son ENJOY carrots in this recipe!  🙂  And really, what could be easier….freezer to crockpot.  ❤




MOPS Mom’s Night Out

Leave a comment

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

Greek-Inspired Chicken

Teriyaki Chicken

3 Packet Roast

As I told the ladies last night, my picky kids love all these recipes.  Enjoy!

Garlic Balsamic Pork Chops (from OAMM)

We love these pork chops.  I made up 40 of them this week….5 meals worth for my co-op, 3 meals worth for me, 3 meals worth for my mom.



Tequila Lime Chicken


No photos, this meal didn’t last long enough!  This recipe is from a freezer cookbook called “Fix, Freeze, Feast“.  It has an interesting premise….recipes centered around the large packages of meat at warehouse stores.  Well, I thought it might also work well for freezer co-op cooking.  This recipe makes 3 meals worth, so I had to double it for the 6 families in our co-op.  We loved this marinade!!!!!!   The chicken was so moist and flavorful!  If you don’t have a co-op, make one recipe for 3 easy meals to add to your freezer.

Tequila Lime Chicken (Fix, Freeze, Feast)

1 tray (approx. 6 lbs.) boneless, skinless, chicken breasts

3/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup bottled margarita mix

3 Tbs. tequila

3 Tbs. lime juice

1 Tbs. dry mustard

3 tsp.  mince garlic (about 9 cloves)

To Freeze:

-Combine all ingredients except chicken.

-Divide chicken between 3 gallon freezer bags.

-Divide marinade between the 3 meals and pour over the chicken.

-Press out all the air, seal the bag, and freeze flat.

To Serve:

-Thaw chicken overnight.

-Grill over medium-low fire, basting frequently with the marinade.  Turn every 5 minutes, cooking for about 30 minutes.  Do not baste during the last 5 minutes.
