Freezer Meals: Hawaiian Chicken...

I have to start off by saying two things. One, this recipe makes a a ridiculous amount. I got this recipe from Don't Panic--Dinner's in the Freezer. This book is pretty darn awesome. It allows you to multiply the recipes up to nine times! Second, I LOVED this recipe, but my family not so much. I think the problem was I wanted to use up these whole wheat egg noodles I had stashed in my pantry...not a good call to serve with this recipe. This recipe is best over rice. Once I served it with rice, they were all smiles:)

Ok now that we have those two things out of the way, we can get onto the recipe. I am sharing the recipe for making a triple batch. I ended up taking this triple batch recipe and fitting it into five freezer bags. Knocking out that many freezer meals in one shot is awesome. Oh and one single recipe of this meal serves 8-10 people.

After I froze his recipe, and thawed a single batch for dinner, I placed it in the crock-pot. This was perfect for a busy Sunday. Dinner was ready for us when we got home. I only had to add the starch. Before serving I placed the chicken in my Kitchenaid mixer and shredded the chicken. Shredding the chicken allows it to go a bit further too.

alright now we are on to the recipe....

for reals this time:)
