So remember how Laura and I got together a few months ago and made a bunch of freezer meals?
I promised that I would report back about how they survived freezing, thawing and cooking. ..
I did one update for cheesy chicken chalupas and pizza casserole. Now, I am back with 2 more meals. Both of these are Advocare challenge friendly too!
Meal #1 – crockpot chicken fajitas.
I thawed this one in the fridge and then threw it in the crockpot. To keep it advocare friendly, I served it over lettuce and topped with avocado and mango salsa. The original directions say to serve with tortillas, cheese and sour cream.
Overall, super easy to prepare – you can’t beat dumping dinner into the crockpot.
It wasn’t the most flavorful dish ever. I would think if I made it again, I would probably add more spice and maybe some jalapenos.
Overall grade for freezer meal = B+. It was a good (not great) meal, easy to prepare, and made dinner a breeze.
Meal #2 – crockpot chicken cacciatore
This is another crockpot meal, so same process – thaw overnight in fridge and then put in the crockpot. This recipe uses chicken thighs – which Scott loves and I do not. So this wasn’t my favorite dish ever. It was also a bit bland. I have made much better chicken cacciatore recipes before. BUT, Scott liked it and ate it for leftovers.
Overall grade for freezer meal = B-. It was an ok meal for me and it was easy to prepare.
I would totally make chicken cacciatore as a freezer meal again, I would just use my own recipe and chicken breast instead of thighs.
Linking up with Becky for TYT because freezer meals are always great for treating your future weeknight self!
Have you had any freezer (or crockpot) meal successes lately?
