Having meal components in the freezer ready to go makes meal time prep so much easier.
For quite some time, my people have been requesting one of their favorite meals: Chicken Pot Pie. This week I’m going to deliver. Unless you just fixed a large roast chicken or turkey dinner, it’s a fair amount of work to cook the chicken, mix up gravy, roll a pie crust, etc. Since I make this from scratch, Chicken Pot Pie is a labor of love.
I made it easier on myself this month during my freezer cooking session. I cooked the chicken overnight in the slow cooker and then deboned and chopped it the next morning. After a chilling time in the fridge, I tossed four bags of chicken into the freezer. The drippings went into a big pot of gravy that I mixed up right away. This week, I just need to cook some vegetables and mix the pie crust. Assembling all these components is super easy — and makes for a great meal that my family loves.
Here’s the meal plan for the week:
16. Mexibar – with Cheese Enchiladas, Rice, Beans, Salad, Toppings
19. Beans and Rice
