Dinner #4: Sweet And Sour Chicken Freezer Meal





Freezer meals are the hottest blog topic these days.  And I am all about it!  They are just so smart.  Make meals when you have time.  And they are ready to go when you need them.

Today we are making sweet and sour chicken.  I used more of the shredded chicken that I made on Monday but you can certainly just cut up raw chicken.  You will just need to cook it longer.  I also used more of the onions from Tuesday.  So this meal came together in just a few minutes. If you are making it to eat the same night, there is no need to place it in a zip top baggie of course. 

Be sure to write on the bag what you have inside and any instructions BEFORE you fill up the bag.  I plan to serve this over rice but it would also be yummy over egg or rice noodles.  By now y'all know that I keep portions of cooked brown rice in my freezer at all times.
