Over the past several years, I have made freezer meals many times. This time, my energy levels are pretty low, so I wanted some meals that would be easy to put together. I found several lists of "Chicken Dump" meals on pinterest. These are a bunch of meals where you dump all the ingredients in a ziploc bag, freeze the meal and then thaw, and cook in the crock pot. So I decided to try 10 of these meals and I doubled them for 20 meals.
I made the four recipes on Kojo Designs' post Getting Organized - A Whole Month's Worth of Dinners with Crock Pot Meals. I only doubled them, where as she quadrupled them. The recipes are Hot and Spicy Braised Peanut Chicken with Veggies, Coconut Curry Chicken, Orange Chicken, and Maple Dijon Chicken.
I made Broccoli Chicken Alfredo and Cilantro Lime Chicken from Six Sisters Stuff. And the Scalloped Potatoes and Ham from Six Cents. And the Creamy Italian Chicken from Making our Marx.
Right now, I can't track down the last two recipes that I made, but they are Lime Salsa Chicken, and Balsamic Chicken with Figs.
The kids were a big help! Keira, Kyle, and Sophia helped me cut the vegetables. Avalyn was absolutely invaluable in the process of making these meals. She helped cut and then put all the ingredients into the bags, while I finished cutting and preparing the ingredients. We made all the meals gluten free, and many of the meals are dairy free, too!
