Crockpot Chicken Freezer Meals 

Four freezer bags, one large package of chicken, and fifteen minutes. That’s all it takes to assemble these super simple crockpot chicken meals! 

With the beginning of a new year, I am making it a goal of mine to be a better me than I was before. Simple, and allows room for growth every single day. A part of being a better me includes getting back to eating well on a regular basis. 

Freezer meals are perfect to have in the house for when life gets crazy. Everything is all prepped and just cooks in the crockpot all day long!
