{Freezer Meal} Sweet Garlic Chicken


We are continuing our freezer meal series! If you missed the previous freezer meals, you can check them out here: Day One, Day Two, Day Three, Day Four, Day FiveDay Six, Day Seven.

Today's recipe is for Sweet Garlic Chicken. It has a great blend of flavors - garlic, BBQ, Asian seasoning and balsamic vinegar. I was worried the chicken would have a strong balsamic flavor, but it didn't. All of the seasonings really mellowed the balsamic out.


I couldn't decide what to serve this with. I didn't want to lose all that yummy sauce, so I shredded the chicken and served it over rice. This would also be good over noodles, potatoes or quinoa. I sprinkled the chicken bowl with a little red pepper flakes for a bit of heat. That is totally optional, but we really enjoyed it!

  4. I love this freezer meal series, so thank you! One question for all the meals: you say to freeze the recipe in a gallon-size Ziplock bag. Once it's all frozen and you want to put it in the Crock Pot, how do you get it out of the bag? Isn't it all kinda frozen to the bag??? Dumb question, I know.
