I did a vlog explaining how to make, freeze, thaw and cook Marinated Chicken, a recipe I created on the fly two weeks ago. It’s just about the easiest recipe in the world — especially when it comes to Freezer Cooking. I whipped up three meal’s worth of this for the freezer in about five minutes!
Here’s the recipe, for those who may not want to sit through my very amateur vlogging attempt (hey, it’s only my second vlog so I guess I still can get some grace, eh?):
Freezer-Friendly Marinated Chicken
- 3 whole frozen chicken breasts
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 cup liquid sweetener (honey, maple syrup, agave)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
Put chicken breasts and garlic clove in a freezer bag. Mix together sweetener and soy sauce and pour over chicken in the bag. Seal bag air-tight (use a straw to remove extra air, if necessary). Stick in the freezer (or you can cook immediately).
To cook: Thaw on the counter top for a few hours or in the refrigerator overnight. Cook in the crockpot on high for 3-4 hours or in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes.
Serve over rice, if desired. May also chop and add steamed veggies and serve over rice. Makes 3-4 servings.
Oh and I forgot to look up how to pronounce “agave” until after I shot the video (believe it or not, it’s not a word I’ve ever heard pronounced before!). And of course, I mispronounced it. Argh! I guess that’s why it’s better for me to stick mostly with writing!
And next time, I’m going to get someone to shoot the vlog for me so that you can actually see I have a face and also so that the camera isn’t jumping up and down all over the place as I film and talk with my hands.
Note: I’m bumping the promised Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancake Recipe and the Freezer Cooking Accomplishments linky to tomorrow because I ran out of space and time to get it up today. Thanks for your patience!
