I just did 3 freezer quarts of diced chicken (you can use tenders or thighs), with homemade teriyaki marinade (or you can buy it). I plan to dump then in the crock pot & serve with rice & steamed veggies like a Flame Broiler bowl.

It doesn't seem like a big deal, but i'm going to love not having to deal with cutting raw chicken & the cleanup involved. I was already using chicken tonight do I just cut up 3 more packages before cleaning everything.

I loved having freezer meals right after DS2 was born. Most of the meals were just the extra after making a double or triple batch of dinner. If I was making spaghetti and meatballs, I made a HUGE batch and froze the rest. I found it better to freeze stuff I already knew my family liked than trying new recipes that my picky family may not even end up liking.

Now that I'm not so pressed for time, I just freeze prepped ingredients rather than whole meals. Meatballs, shredded chicken, cookie dough, raw meats in marinades, etc. For example, there's this Korean sauce my family loves. Any time I find chicken breasts, wing or beef ribeye steaks on sale super cheap, I buy them up. Then I separate the meat into single meal size portions and some of our marinade. Leave the bags in the fridge for several hours to start the marinating, then pop them in the freezer. When you're ready to use them, they'll marinate more while they thaw.
