A few weeks ago, Jared and I decided to try some freezer crock pot meals and they are now one of our favorite things! It's so nice to put something in the crockpot in the morning or at lunch and have dinner pretty much ready when I get home from work! I'm going to be sharing all our favorite ones we've found on the blog. If anyone has any other favorite crock pot meals please share, I need some more!
One of J's favorites that we've made so far is Honey Garlic Chicken. I found a couple similar recipes and ended up just making up my own based on the suggestions. Super easy & yummy!
2 large chicken breasts
Bag of baby carrots
1/2 C Soy Sauce
1/2 C Ketchup
1/3 C Honey
3 Tsp Minced Garlic
Bag of frozen broccoli
Combine all ingredients (except the broccoli, you add that when cooking) in a ziploc bag and freeze. The night before you want to make this meal, put it in the fridge to defrost. (Side note: can use frozen chicken breasts because the meat will marinate when you thaw the meal before you cook it).
Cook on the crockpot on high 4-6 hours. When the meal is about an hour from being done, add the bag of broccoli.
This makes more than plenty for two people (we always have leftovers) but it could easily be doubled for a larger group!
We serve this meal with macaroni & cheese, homemade mashed potatoes and peas!
Love making homemade mashed potatoes! (Store bought just can't even compare in my opinion!)
This meal is seriously the easiest to make and warm & yummy for this time of the year!
