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!


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.
