Crockpot BBQ Chicken

Continuing on my journey with freezer cooking, this crockpot meal was next in my experiment.  BBQ chicken is one of my favorite foods, so I was excited to try this one.  The original recipe was found at Little House Living.  Plus it is gluten free, so that is a bonus!




Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts
2 cups chopped green peppers
1 cup chopped onion
3 potatoes, chopped
1 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Throw everything together in a freezer bag and freeze. The night before cooking, place the bag in the refrigerator to thaw. When you are ready to cook, place the contents of the bag in the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.  Don't be worried if the potatoes turn a darker shade, it is normal when potatoes are frozen - they taste just fine. :)



The recipe was pretty good.  I do find myself often trying to make improvements after trying a recipe and I think that the next time that I make this one, I will be adding a little more spices.  The chicken was without a lot of flavor despite marinating in the BBQ sauce all day long. The peppers and potatoes were quite savory, so I just need to get the chicken as flavorful! 




I am enjoying this freezer cooking thing - I love that I do not have the stress of preparing dinner after a long day of work.  AND I love how the house smells when I walk into the house!  Yum, Yum! :)
