10 Chicken Crockpot Freezer Meals

You know me.  I’m the lady who loves Crockpot Freezer Meals.  Yep, I’m a dork like that.  :)  Actually, it’s just because I’m a busy mom of 6 kids and I just don’t know how to get everything done when I’m constantly having to pause for dinner.  It’s super frustrating!

10 Chicken Crockpot Freezer Meals

Today, I’m going to share with you my top 10 chicken crockpot freezer meals that our family makes in the crockpot.  They are already included in my Crockpot Freezer Meals weekly menus, BUT, they’re sooo good, I don’t want you to forget about them.

8.  Chicken Ala King

This recipe was chosen by my husband.  He remembers eating Chicken Ala King back in his Army days while he was out in the training field.  They would give him this tasty dish in his MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat) and he says it was the best one out there.  It was so much better than the other MRE’s, that he would trade anything he had to get more Chicken Ala King.  Of course, he still doused it with Tabasco sauce, so it couldn’t have been THAT great!  :)  When I asked him if this crockpot meal was as good as he remembered, he said that it was WAY BETTER.

9.  Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

Unfortunately, on these last 2 recipes, I do not have pictures.  I think I need to go back and make some meals again and get pictures.  What was I thinking?  No pictures?  Well, this one was too good to leave out.  It’s great for cold weather or sick days.  There’s nothing better than homemade Chicken Noodle Soup!

10.  Garlic Lime Chicken

Quick Egg Casserole for New Year’s Brunch

You know how I like quick and easy, right?  :)  Well, this isn’t a crockpot recipe, BUT, you’ll see that it’s so easy and so quick (besides the 1 hour cooking time), that you’ll enjoy throwing this Quick Egg Casserole together.  We actually had this for our Christmas brunch.  We don’t go all out on cooking on Christmas day.  We’d rather just be lazy than spend much time in the kitchen.  It’s always the most relaxing day, I think for the whole year!  All of my kids liked it, too….so that makes me want to serve it again on New Year’s Day!

This casserole will be the perfect way to bring in the New Year, without slaving away in the kitchen all day!  To make it even easier, it could be prepared the night before, stored in the fridge and then cooked first thing when you get up.

½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Quiick Egg Casserole

Spray a 11×13″ pan with cooking spray.

Pour the potato/ham/cheese mixture into the pan.  Pour egg mixture over the potato mixture and pat down.

Bake on 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until the edges start browning and the center is set.

 

You can use shredded hash browns, but we ended up using the thicker, cut ones, because they were out of the shredded ones.  Either way, your dish will be delish.  :)


Chocolate Peppermint Bars Recipe – Christmas Baking

This post was sponsored by McCormick.  Any opinions are 100% my own.  

I love me some Christmas baking!  Don’t you?  You get to make all sorts of treats that you wouldn’t have on any normal day of the week.  You get to share them with your friends and family, all while trying not to eat too many of them.  ;)  That’s the hard part!

I was blessed with the opportunity to try one of McCormick’s very own recipes and wow, what a hit this will be in our family.  I think this will be in our recipe box for years to come!    It is absolutely DELICIOUS!  There is the perfect amount of McCormick Peppermint Flavoring as well as the amazing amounts of chocolate.  If you like Peppermint Patties, you’ll want to try this!

In fact, it’s even better than a Peppermint Patty!  The bottom of it is a fudgy brownie.   Then, you top it with a white peppermint patty  mixture.  After that, you top it with melted chocolate chips mixed with butter.  Sprinkle on some crushed peppermint candies, to make it look amazingly tempting.  It is very rich, so you won’t want to go overboard on eating lots of pieces of this amazing treat at once!  But wow, seriously?!

Chocolate Peppermint Bars Recipe

1 family sized box of brownie mix
2.5 cups of Powdered Sugar
1/2 cup (one stick) plus 7 Tbsp of butter, divided
1.5 Tbsp. heavy cream
1 tsp. McCormick Pure Peppermint Extract
12 oz semi sweet baking chocolate, broken into pieces
Crushed Peppermint Candies (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare brownie mix as directed on package. Spread in greased foil-lined 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  2. Bake 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out almost clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, beat confectioners’ sugar, 7 tablespoons of the butter, melted, cream and peppermint extract in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended and smooth. Spread evenly over cooled brownie. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  4. Microwave chocolate and remaining 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter in large microwave bowl on HIGH 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Spread over top of chilled brownie. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies, if desired. Cut into bars.

Here’s what my steps looked like:

Here’s what we started with!!

Chocolate Peppermint Bars | Sidetracked Sarah

We began by preparing the brownie mix.  While it was baking, we got my 2 year old started with breaking up the peppermints.  This boy loves to throw things and hammer things, so this was right up his alley!

The brownies are out of the oven, so we let them cool for a while on a wire rack.

While it was cooling,we got the peppermint mixture ready, complete with the McCormick Pure Peppermint Extract.

Once the brownies were cool enough, we spread the mixture over the top of the brownies.  Then stuck them in the fridge for 30 minutes.

While that was in the fridge for 30 minutes, we got the chocolate topping for the top ready.  We put butter and chocolate chips in the microwave.

After they came out and we stirred them up, it looked like this:

Then, we spread it over the top.  It looked like this….

Finally, we sprinkled the top with broken pieces of peppermint.

Mmmm, Mmmm, doesn’t that look scrumptious!

The next morning, we cut them into bars. Don’t they look pretty?

Even if they looked ugly, you can’t beat the taste!  Wowee, you’ll love these things!
