Mini Chicken Cooking Day

Do you remember the chicken I cooked up a few days ago? Yes No Maybe LOL I cooked the chicken in the oven and then later some more in the crock pot to use in Freezer meals.

I made Chicken Fried Rice with vegetables. Done

Ingredients needed for freezer day 3 meals
6 Chicken Breasts
1 1/2 small bags Frozen Vegetables (your choice) we like peas, carrots & green beans
9 C cooked rice

Ingredients needed on cooking day
2 eggs
extra virgin olive oil
soy sauce

Cook the Chicken in the oven and allow to cool. Cut into bite sized cubes. While the chicken is cooking in the oven cook your rice until almost done quickly cool it down by placing in in the fridge.

When the chicken and rice are both cold place 1 cup of vegetables, 3 cups of rice, and 2 cups of cubed chicken in your freezer bag.

On cooking day thaw out your bag of rice, chicken, and vegetable mix. Heat 2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large skillet add to it the chicken mix. Cook until heated through. Move the mix off to the side and add a little oil to the pan. Scramble 2 eggs until well cooked then mix them with the chicken mixture. When mixed well add 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce and pepper to taste.or your favorite seasoning.

PS you can scramble your eggs and freeze them with the rice mixture to save more time but I like the taste of the fresh cooked eggs better.

Taco Rice with Chicken Done

This is very simple and I don't typically use measurements but I will attempt to give you an idea.

Ingredients needed on Freezing day 3 meals
4 1/2 cups instant brown rice
2 packages taco seasoning mix
9C Chicken Broth
6C Cooked Shredded Chicken
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
Flour Tortillas

Ingredients to have on hand cooking day
sour cream

I throw the taco seasoning, chicken broth, and shredded chicken into a pot and cook on high until boiling then I add the rice. Cover and remove from heat and let stand for amount of time directed on box. You could also use regular brown rice just follow the cooking time on the package.

Once it is cooked through place it in the fridge to cool quickly.

Portion the rice mixture out into freezer baggies. Place 1/2 C cheese in a baggie, and put the rice mixture, cheese, and tortillas into a gallon size bag labeled Taco Rice with chicken.

On cookind day thaw. Then heat rice mixture in a oiled pan stirring often. spoon into tortillas and top with cheese, tomatoe, lettuce, etc.

There is a similar recipe available at I have tried many of their recipes and they have been good. Their site has provided me with inspiration for some of my recipes give them a look!
