Make Your Freezer Meal Life Easier...and a recipe

Here are a few tips to make Once A Month Cooking or just freezing meals in general a lot least to me.

You'll want: 2 sets of measuring cups. One for wet ingredients and one for dry.
2 sets of measuring spoons, REALLY large mixing bowls (3 or 4), large mixing spoons, large pots (you can use your canner if you have one), disposable foil baking pans, extra heavy duty foil (so important. You don't want freezer burn), Freezer zip top bags, disposable plastic containers, permanant marker, 2 timers, food processor, slow cooker, and a large garbage can.

More tips coming soon. There's a TON of info I want to share with you. Until's another recipe (tried and GOOD)

Cream Cheese Chicken - Makes 6 servings

1 (.7) envelope Italian dressing mix
1/2 C butter
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese

Turn slow cooker on high. Melt butter in bottom of slow cooker. Stir in Italian dressing Mix. Cut chicken breasts into 1 inch strips. Place in slow cooker and stir to coat with the butter mixture. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Remove chicken to a plate to cool. Add cream of chicken soup and cream cheese to the liquid in slow cooker. Stir to melt and mix until smooth and creamy. Remove sauce from slow cooker and allow to cool. Place chicken and sauce into freezer bag. Label and freeze.

To serve: Thaw. Heat and stir until smooth, hot and bubbly. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice or hot buttered noodles.

This is soooo delicious! It can easily be doubled so you can enjoy for dinner and then freeze the rest.
