Crock Pot and Freezer Meal with Chicken
Cream Cheese Chicken is one of my favorite freezer meals because you can freeze it and then cook it up in the crock pot.
Cream Cheese Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 packet of dry zesty Italian seasoning
1 can of cream of chicken soup
8 oz of cream cheese
¼ cup of butter
½ cup of water
salt and pepper to taste
24 chicken breasts
6 packets dry zesty Italian seasoning
6 cans of cream of chicken soup
3 lbs of cream cheese
1 ½ cups of butter
3 c. water
salt & pepper to taste
TO PREPARE FOR FREEZING: Bag Chicken and butter and label. Place spice packet and soup in aside for pantry. Keep cream cheese in the fridge. You can freeze the spice packet with the chicken, but if you do be sure to put it in a small sandwich bag along with the butter so they don’t get wet when the chicken thaws.
TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING: Place frozen chicken in a crock pot. Melt butter and combine with seasoning and water. Pour over the chicken and cook on low for 5-6 hours. About 45 minutes before chicken is done combine soup and cream cheese heat on the stove and pour over chicken to heat for remaining 45 minutes. Serve over rice, noodles or potatoes. Note you can add broccoli or a mixed frozen veggie with the chicken.
