Impromptu Freezer Cook

This week Kroger had a sale on bone in chicken. I decided to stock up. Since I had all the meat in the fridge I thought I'd just prep this weeks meals.

First I cut the meat off of several chicken breasts I then threw all the bones in the crock pot to make this broth. Once that was started I boiled the breasts for shredded chicken.

Next up I threw together a few dump recipies

Chicken Caccatore
Caramelized Baked Chicken
Crock Pot Beer Chicken
BBQ Drumsticks

I also had some ground turkey so I threw together some yummy Johnny Marzetti. This is one of my faves!

I used half of the shredded chicken to throw together Honey Lime Enchiladas. These are a family favorite.The other half I froze for some later recipes.

I will use some of the chicken stock to make some chicken noodle soup for lunches this week.

Hopefully, this will keep my evenings a little easier and my freezer a little more full.
