Rick and I finally got to take our summer vacation last week! We spent a wonderful week on the beach in South Carolina. Thinking ahead, I wanted to prepare an easy meal that we could just toss in the crockpot the day we got back from vacation. I figured we’d be tired of eating out, but wouldn’t feel like cooking after making the 12 hour drive back home the day before, so this freezer meal was the perfect solution.
I dumped all the ingredients in a 1 gallon freezer bag and froze it. When we got home from vacation on Saturday, I placed the freezer bag in the refrigerator to defrost overnight, and then dumped all the contents of the bag in the crockpot in the morning. 8 hours later, we had a nice dinner waiting for us!
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup bbq sauce (optional)
1 1/2 pounds chicken pieces (I used 3 small breasts)
For freezing: Place all ingredients int a 1-gallon freezer bag. Lay flat in freezer. To thaw: Take the bag out of the freezer the night before, making sure the frezer bag is completely sealed. Place bag on a shel furthers rom the freezer and lay flat.
Put chicken in crockpot and dump contents of bag on top of it. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6.
