Frozen Meal Prep

Frozen meal prepping: this could very easily turn into my new addiction. After "pinning" various frozen meal preparations, I finally decided to do it! I started small with just one frozen meal, but the ingredients actually made two servings. Once I finished and put them in the freezer, I used them later in the month and simply dumped everything into a crockpot and just smiled at my accomplishment! I'm hooked!!! The best part is-- it only took me about 30 minutes to prepare two meals! How awesome is that?

Here's the recipe I used:
  • (2) Green Peppers Cut into Slices split between 2 bags

  • (1) Red Pepper Cut into Slices-split between bags

  • (1) Zucchini Chopped and split between bags

  • (3) Onions Chopped and split between bags

  • (6) Red Potatoes Chopped and split between bags (you can also use Sweet Potatoes)

  • (2) Garlic Cloves Chopped & Split Between bags

  • (6) Chicken Breasts Split between bags

  •  (1) 15 oz can of Tomato Pasta Sauce Split Between bags

  • (1) TBSP of Brown Sugar per bag

  • (1/4) tsp Salt per bag

Label both one gallon size freezer bags and place prepared ingredients in each bag.  

When you're ready to enjoy, simply place in a slow cooker. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours. You can serve this with rice, bread, or alone.  Hopefully I'll discover some other great freezer recipes and share them soon!
