Freezer Meal Prep Idea

I am very excited to bring you guys the 1st recipe of a Freezer Crock pot Series I am doing! I got some ideas for recipes from a dear friend of mine and then my neighbor and I went to town 🙂 This is the 1st recipe we have tried and it’s fabulous. Not to mention it’s SUPER easy and only 5 ingredients!

If you didn’t want to make this meal ahead of time and just wanted to put everything in the crock pot in the morning when you woke up, you can totally do that too.  I promise that you will like it and want to make it again though…so maybe make two batches and freeze one for those busy nights 🙂

If you don't want to have this be a Freezer Meal, just follow the recipe and instructions above and don't place in freezer, cook as directed.
You can also serve the chicken on a bed of lettuce to reduce the carbs, or if you are like my husband and love tortilla chips, it also makes for amazing nachos.
