1st Freezer Meal!

I don't have a picture for this recipe as I made it at my friend's house this afternoon. Jackie and I have decided to start experimenting more with freezer and/or crock pot meals. We figured that these recipes would be useful given our busy schedules and her almost two year old daughter. What's not to like about having meals ready in the freezer or things you can just throw in the crock pot and forget?! This first one came out pretty good! I loved the dijon and maple combination. We served it with some brown rice and it would be delicious with a vegetable side. There was a lot of liquid left in the crock pot that was very flavorful (we poured it on the rice) but next time I would find a way to thicken it up a bit before serving it on the rice.

Maple Dijon Glazed Chicken
(from sixsistersstuff.com)
1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts
1 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1. Place all ingredients in a resealable gallon-sized freezer bag. Mix together and zip bag closed.
2. When ready to eat, remove from freezer and thaw in fridge for 24 hours. Cook on LOW for 8 hours (or HIGH for 4 hours). Sprinkle with fresh or dried rosemary for serving.
