Smothered Chicken - Crockpot & Freezer Meal
I have not posted in over a week! Our house has been filled with sickness for the past three weeks. It started with me (I am still not 100%), it moved on to the hub and then to our little guy. It's been miserable. Hopefully by next weekend we are all feeling 100% again.
As for my fan-tab-ulous Smothered Chicken... I went crazy one day and prepared 35 freezer meals in one day. I will post on the entire process after I post all my recipes. (That way I can link them all.) This worked out great as a freezer meal and crockpot meal. What's even better is that it latest us two days!
