Here’s a slightly modified recipe from a cookbook that helps me get tasty meals in the freezer, Don’t Panic–More Dinner’s in the Freezer: A Second Helping of Tasty Meals You Can Make Ahead. I have sung this book’s praises in previous posts, and this is another keeper recipe! The best part about this recipe, it’s CHICKEN and not ground beef! (My freezer is full of ground beef meals right now. I need some variety!)
3 lbs cut chicken pieces (great place for the .59 / lb chicken sale this week!)
4 medium potatoes, cut into medium chunks
4 Roma or plum tomatoes, quartered
1 large onion, cut into medium chunks
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c fresh oregano, coarsely chopped (or 2 tsp dried)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
To make for the freezer just mix everything in a large bowl. Stir until it’s all coated. Place chicken and veggies in a freezer bag. Freeze.
Thaw completely. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place chicken and veggies in a large roasting pan – put the chicken on top of the veggies (skin side up, if your meat has skin). Roast until chicken juices run clear, about 1 1/2 hours for skinned chicken pieces, or less for boneless, skinless meat.
Yum! What’s your favorite freezer friendly chicken meal recipe?
