Pesto Chicken & Beans Crock Pot Freezer Meal

2 chicken breasts
1 can green beans
small jar of pesto

Mix everything together in freezer bag and freeze. To cook, thaw and then toss in crock pot. Cook on low for 6 hours. 

I don't have any pictures of this once it was done cooking. However, the chicken was delicious. The beans were a little weird tasting to me and Marley, but Mike liked them (he likes everything)

BBQ Chicken Crock Pot Freezer Meal

This was super simple to put together and there's so many ways to serve it. We just ate the chicken breasts whole, but you could shred them and serve it on buns too. 

2 lb chicken breasts
18 oz bbq sauce
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
1/2 Tbsp parsley

Mix it all in freezer bag and freeze. Thaw and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Ranch Chicken & Potatoes Crock Pot Freezer Meal

2 chicken breasts
1/2 bottle ranch dressing
1 box au gratin potatoes (only use the potatoes)
1 cup water

Mix everything together in a freezer bag and freeze. Thaw and dump into crock pot with chicken on the bottom. Cook on low for 6 hours. 

The flavor of this was good, but the potatoes were a little tough. I think next time I will use real sliced potatoes or even frozen cubed hash brown potatoes instead of boxed potatoes.

Chicken Souvlaki Crock Pot Freezer Meal

1.5 lb chicken breasts
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp oregano
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

If freezing, just toss it all in freezer bag and lay flat to freeze. To cook, toss it all in a crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Shred chicken. 

We had this twice, first time I served it on tortillas with feta cheese and the second time I used mozzarella. Both were good. I imagine pitas would be tasty with feta cheese too.

1 1/2 cup salsa
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup water

To freeze, just combine everything in freezer bag and freeze. To cook, toss it all in the crock pot and cook on low for 5-6 hours. 

The first time we had this I just served it as whole chicken breasts with some veggies as a side dish.

Mike said I have to make tacos like this everytime.

2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1 box chicken stuffing

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook pasta al dente'.  Mix shredded chicken, pasta, and cream of chicken soup together.  In another small bowl, mix stuffing and sour cream together. 

Spread pasta mix on bottom of baking dish.  Spread stuffing mix on top. Cover with swiss cheese slices.  

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

The crock pot freezer meals I made a few weeks ago are running out. =(  I have another list of some that I want to try, but it will probably be a few more weeks before I get them all prepared.  Today's recipe is golden chicken & noodles. I made this the other day, but we ended up going shopping and just ate dinner out so I threw it into the fridge and just warmed it up the next night. It was delicious.

4-5 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
 10 3/4 oz can broccoli cheese soup
1 Cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1 tsp pepper
Extra Wide Egg Noodles (used on day of serving)

On cooking day, just dump bag into crock pot and cook on low for 5-7 hours.

Cook pasta al dente' and mix in before serving.

BBQ Cola Crock Pot Chicken

Now that it's summer I've been looking for some good crock pot recipes so I don't have to turn on the oven, thus turning on the air conditioning. It's a vicious cycle.  This recipe was super quick to throw together and was apparantly quick to be eaten too because I didn't even get a chance to get a picture. OOPS! 

1 bottle of bbq sauce
1 onion, cut into quarters
12 ounces of coke

Place chicken and onion in bottom of crock pot. Pour bbq sauce and coke over top. 

Cover and cook on high for 6-8 hours. 

We just ate our chicken pieces whole, but you could also shred them and serve them on buns.

Crispy Cheddar Chicken

It has been way too long since I shared a recipe with you all. I had some internet problems and we're in the process of buying a great house so I haven't had the time to stop in and post for a while. 

This recipe is one I saw on pinterest and since I had all the ingredients in the cabinet already I cooked it up a few days later.  It turned out pretty good. I didn't use the cheese sauce but Mike did and said it was so good with it poured over top.  

4 breasts chicken
2/3 cup milk
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups italian breadcrumbs
1 (18 ounce) can Progresso Creamy Three Cheese cooking sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Pour milk, cheese and breadcrumbs in to three separate dishes.  Cut each chicken breast into smaller pieces.  Dip into milk, then cheese, then breadcrumbs until well coated. (No pictures of this messy process, sorry)

Lay chicken on baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes or until cooked and no longer pink.  While chicken is cooking, warm up the cheese cooking sauce in a pot.   Pour cheese sauce over chicken before serving.
