Freezer Recipes

At last! Here are the freezer recipes I've been using, along with reviews of each.

PW's CHICKEN SPAGHETTI
-I will not type this one out but you can go to Pioneer Woman's website and find the recipe here.
-This is probably one of my favorite freezer meals I've ever made. Comes out nice and bubbly every time.
-Tweaks/Tips: I leave out the cayenne pepper. But be sure to season everything well. A little S&P goes a long way in a pasta dish!


CHICKEN AND RICE CASSEROLE
*This one you bake ahead of time, cool, then freeze.
1 cup uncooked rice
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 7/8 cup water
1 1-oz pkg dry onion soup mix
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 350. Spread uncooked rice in botom of casserole dish. Arrange chicken pieces on top of rice. Mix cream of chicken soup and water, and pour over the chicken and rice. Sprinkle the onion soup mix over the top. Seal with foil. Bake for 1-1.5 hours.
-This one was good and easy. Not over the top delicious, but hey, it's a make ahead meal and I was thankful for it when I ate it.
-Tweaks/Tips: I would buy name brand Onion Soup mix rather than Great Value.



SPAGHETTI PIE
*This recipe is soooooooo yummy. You have to try it! The noodles become the "crust" of this pie and it is fantastically scrumptious.

6 oz spaghetti
2 T. butter
1 egg
1/3 c. grated Parmesan
1 c. cottage cheese
1 c. shredded mozzarella
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1 15oz jar spaghetti sauce

Cook spaghetti noodles. Drain them, then stir in butter, parmesan cheese and your eggs. Form spaghetti into a crust into a 10" pie plate (or a casserole dish works too.) Then, brown your onions and pepper until soft. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Add spaghetti sauce. Simmer for 25-30 minutes. Spread cottage cheese onto your noodle "crust." Top with your meat sauce. Bake 30 minutes at 350. Top with mozzarella and let cheese melt.
*This one doesn't require you to bake it before freezing; so if you want to freeze it, just seal it up after you assemble the casserole (make sure it cools off first) and then put it in your freezer. Baking time is 30-45 minutes if frozen.
*Tweaks/Tips: You do not have to jazz up your spaghetti sauce by doing the onion/pepper thing. You can just use plain ol' spaghetti sauce without that stuff. I bought Prego original sauce and just mixed it with my cooked ground beef.



CARIBBEAN CHICKEN
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can pineapple chunks in juice
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/3 c. orange juice
1/2 c. raisins (optional)

Place all ingredients in 1 gallon freezer bag. Freeze. When you're ready to cook, thaw it overnight in the fridge. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes. OR put the frozen chicken in the crockpot and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. Yum.
*Great recipe! Only negative is that you have to thaw in fridge the night before if you don't use the crockpot option.
*Tweaks/Tips: I left out the raisins because that just sounded weird to me. But if you try with raisins, let me know how you like it!


Happy cooking!

Girl, this came at the PERFECT time. Gearing up for the school year, I am in major freezer cooking mode, and these sound delish. :)
