5 Chicken Freezer Meals

Happy Monday, beautiful! Today I am going to share with you a super simple meal prep that can be done in 30 minutes that yields 5 easy dinners that can be tossed together in a pan or insta pot. These meals are easily prepared with fresh fruits and veggies, steamer rice or even in a delicious spinach wrap. They’re versatile, easy and make dinner time a breeze.

Chicken is the protein of choice in our house so I start with about 3.5-4 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts. That’s about 6 chicken breasts. I dice up my chicken into bite size pieces and distribute evenly to 5 freezer bags. Now, these meals are made for about 2.5 people so if there are more mouths to feed in your house, simply adjust the amount of chicken you need. Once you have the diced chicken divided up into their bags, we can start adding the rest of our ingredients.

The recipes of choice in our house this week are:

  • Honey Mustard Chicken
  • Honey Pepper Chicken
  • Sesame Chicken
  • Southwest Chicken
  • Buffalo Chicken

The nice thing about this meal prep is that there is no chopping up vegetables. I like to keep items like steamer rice, fresh broccoli and greens, spinach wraps and cauliflower rice on hand to pair with these recipes.

  • 1/2 sweet onion or chopped green onion (optional)
