Freezer Meals from The Blonde Host

Recipes from The Blonde Host

Tikka Misala:

  • 2 lbs Chicken Breasts
  • 1 red pepper- sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper- sliced
  • 1 onion- sliced
  • 1 jar Tikka Misala (Made in India brand from Aldi)
  • Basmati rice-Cook separate (do not put in freezer bag or crockpot)
  • Naan- Aldi has ridiculous Naan.

Y’all- this was legit awesome.  Everyone ate it and all was good.  This was a freezer meal, but could easily be done fresh as well.  I cooked it in the crockpot for 6 hours on low.

Just trust me- SOOOO good and not hard at all.  I also make a double or triple batch and eat them with butter and cinnamon and sugar for breakfast…just saying…DO IT.

Creamy Chicken Yum Yum

From Kristen Barlag Bertke

We have a family favorite….chicken creamy yum yum (this has a cool song and dance in our house) .  It’s a meal with a few versions but best described as a dump set forget meal. I use my electric pressure cooker but you could use instant pot or ole crock pot. 
1-2lbs chicken (frozen/thawed) (breast or thigh),
one box of chicken broth (4 cups)
 1 cup of barley (can do any grain ..but I like barley)
1 cup frozen peas
 A bag of baby carrots ( one or two pounds depending,) 
 1/2 C ranch dressing..(sometimes I use blue cheese).
Then cook on high pressure for 45 min. Mix and shred chicken. Then my husband adds some hot sauce but we don’t in the pot because too spicy for kids. This is a recipe I modify depends on what I have. Another variation include frozen broccoli that will almost completely fall apart and when you stir after cooked may be completely hidden if trying to sneak in more veggies I to kids meals!
 
 

Salmon

From Feeding The Family For Less

 
Pop each piece of salmon on top of some tinfoil and smother in green pesto sauce. Wrap up the salmons like a parcel and pop them in the oven on 180 degrees for 25 mins.
After 10 minutes, pop some green beans, chopped carrot and mini corn on the cobs in a pan of boiling water and cook for 10 mins. Then boil the kettle and make up some rice or couscous in a jug following the instructions. While the couscous is cooking in the jug, check the salmon by carefully opening one of the parcels.
If everything is ready, drain the veggies, pop them on the plates, add the couscous and salmon and enjoy!
