Freezer to Crockpot Meal

A few weeks ago I stocked up my chicken, so my neighbor and I were on a mission to make some delicious freezer to crockpot meals.  This Garlic Honey Chicken was the first one my family tried and my son said “Mom, I think this is your best chicken recipe yet!”  I love it when I get praise like that 🙂

I love garlic and I love honey, so in my mind this recipe was going to be fabulous!  The garlic is not over-powering at all, and the honey adds a bit of sweetness.  As you can see, I served mine on a bed of beautifully sauteed veggies.  My kids skipped out of the zucchini and squash and opted for rice 😉

Now, here is my Garlic Honey Chicken Crockpot recipe.  You don’t HAVE to make it as a freezer to crockpot meal, if you decide to not do it that way, just place all the ingredients into the crockpot and cook it for the specified time.

I mentioned that I sauteed my vegetables for this Garlic Honey Chicken Recipe, I used orange bell pepper, zucchini, and squash.  My seasoning was Dirt by VooDoo Chef and just about a tablespoon of Olive Oil.  They were the perfect compliment to the chicken.

  10. Loving all the crock pot meals. They’re so easy to do and it feels good making a good meal without all the work. I’d love to see some easy camping meals though. We have a week long camping trip coming up and it’s hard to come up with easy camping meals that can be cooked over the fire ( and I’m so tired of hot dogs on sticks LOL) for a whole week. We want to try some different meals, not the same ol, same ol campfire meals. So I’d love to see some food experiments for campfire meals.
