Sweet & Sour Chicken Recipe (Freezer Meal)

    A few days ago I commented on Facebook that I had spent the whole day and evening preparing a month's worth of meals in one day.  I decided on the 15 meals I wanted to make; made out the shopping list; and went shopping.  Once I got home, my husband, teenage son and I got busy preparing all the recipes.  One of us would be peeling potatoes; another one would be assembling ingredients and then we would put them together and worked well together.  We made two each of every meal and have 30 meals in the freezer now.  Each day, we just place the meal into the crock pot and wait to enjoy it.
      Today we enjoyed Sweet & Sour Chicken.  It froze well and we just let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator.  It wasn't completely thawed but that is okay too.  To begin with, label your baggie with a sharpie.  "Sweet & Sour Chicken   Cook on low 6 hours or on high for 3 hours".

Sweet & Sour Chicken

                                    4 pcs. of chicken                           1/4 c. deli mustard
                                    1/3 c. ketchup                               1 c. red wine vinegar
                                    1 red bell pepper, cut into strips      1 sm. can  of tomato sauce
                                    1 T. sugar                                     1 can diced pineapple, undrained

       We used 4 pieces of chicken because that is how many is in our family.  Adjust accordingly for your family.  Place all ingredients into a large quart size baggie; squeeze all the air out and make sure it is closed.

Lay flat in your freezer.  A day or two before you are ready to cook this, place in your refrigerator to thaw.  When ready to use, turn on your crock pot and empty the bag ingredients into your crock pot.  You may need to add up to a cup of water.  
    We cooked ours on high for 3 hours and the flavors were amazing.  We served this over rice and was a big hit.  So flavorful and delicious!

  1. Yum! I can not wait to use this recipe. I do love sweet and sour chicken and it has been a while since I have mixed up some freezer meals. They help when you are busy with other chores or needing a break from cooking. Patricia
