You all know I love meals that I can prepare in advance.  It makes weeknight dinners much easier, and usually means we are eating something tasty.  This dish did not disappoint.

 

thai chicken

 

 

Ingredients:

1 Bottle Toasted ASian Sesame Dressing

2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

4 Chicken Breast

2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter, Crunchy

2 Tablespoons Honey

1/2 Teaspoon Red Crushed Pepper

1 Pound Spaghetti Pasta

2 Carrots, Shredded

4 Green Onions, Chopped

8 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, Chopped

 

For the freezer:

1. Place chicken in a freezer bag.  Mix dressing and soy sauce.  Pour 1/3 cup over chicken.  Freeze.

2. Add peanut butter, honey and crushed red pepper to remaining 1/3 cup of dressing mixture.  Bag and freeze.

3. Bag remaining ingredients and freeze.

*It is helpful to label the bags with the entrée and date.  Also, if you don’t combine all the bags into 1 main bag, mark them 1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3 of 3, so you know you have them all on cooking day.

Day before cooking, take out of freezer and place in fridge.

 

Cooking Day:

1. Cook chicken on skillet, medium-high heat for 8 minutes or until cooked through.

2. Cook pasta.

3. Add other items from the freezer to the skillet.

4. Mix in with pasta.

 

This is a meal that HJ and I both loved.  The best part?  Leftovers were even better, the flavor was awesome the next day.

* I discovered this recipe while attending a DISH event put on by Hy-Vee.  They help coordinate freezer meals with groups.  I have participated a few times, and highly recommend it!  Contact your local Hy-Vee to see if they participate, and if they don’t, ask them to (I did!).
