I do an awful lot of freezer cooking around here for this large family of mine. And if you watch my freezer cooking days on Youtube, you know that I tend to make specific meals in bulk instead of just one of this and one of that. For example, I’ll make 5 meatloaves, several pans of lasagna, or a whole bunch of hamburgers, all ready to cook up and go. This ginger lime chicken is simple to make but not quite as intense as the other meals.
My other freezing method I use though on these Large Family Freezer Cooking days might be more friendly for those of you wanting to get started making freezer meals but are a tiny bit afraid to jump in as deep as this large family mama.
This ginger lime chicken is an easy freezer meal that will literally take you minutes to prep but will serve you well on those days when you know you’ll be late getting home and your family still wants to eat. Having something prepared in the freezer that you can dump in the Instant Pot and walk away is an amazing feeling. Pop it in the slow cooker instead and walk in the door several hours later with dinner ready for you makes for an epic #momwin!
I always try to add a few of these types of “bagged and prepped” freezer meals when I’m making meals for the freezer because they are an easy way to take my meal count up a notch. Bonus that they are easy enough for one of my teens to throw in if I’m having a busy morning. Large family mamas have to have help sometimes.
You can do this type of recipe in so many different ways; just combine your favorite flavors and spices with your chicken and you’re good to go!Print
Be prepared for a flavor burst that will delight your family’s senses. The mixture of ginger, lime, and garlic is nothing short of amazing.
