Chicken, Chicken, Chicken....did I mention Chicken???

I mentioned awhile back that I was getting a great deal on some chicken from Zaycon Foods. So last Saturday we picked up our 40 lbs and drove 20 lbs of it to my in-laws. I took my 20 lbs home and decided to spend some time getting them meal ready to save me time down the road. All in all I prepped the chicken for 11 meals and had about 5 lbs of chicken left to freeze and use later. Here is the chicken all chopped/sliced/trimmed and separated by Ziplocs:

Here are the recipes I am using the chicken in (this is the list I am keeping on my computer for reference, hence the notes). In most cases I just cut up the amount of chicken needed in the recipe and then wrote on the Ziploc. Those that were supposed to be marinated, I tossed in the marinade as well before freezing. For the fajitas, I even through in the onion and green pepper. Talk about ready to serve! To be even more organized, I used the dry erase board above our chest freezer to write down all the meals so all I had to do was glance at it when doing my meal planning. Anyway, here is the list, hope you find some new things to add to your dinner menu:)

1. Pretzel Crusted Chicken with Cheddar Mustard Sauce (4 chicken breasts)

2. Chicken Nuggets x2 (2 lbs cut into small chunks)
Deceptively Delicious (pg. 75) - This is a cookbook I have, you add pureed broccoli to the egg when dipping your chicken...tasty and nutritious!

3. Breakfast Casserole (2 cups cubed chicken)
* Use 2 cups chicken instead of ham, mix French onion mix into sour cream instead of raw onions

4. Chicken Tacos x2 (2 lbs cut into ½ inch pieces and marinated)
*Cook marinated chicken instead of adding sauce later

5. BBQ Chicken Salad Sandwiches (1 ½ lbs , halved and marinated)

6. Chicken Fajitas x2 (2 lbs cut into ½ inch strips, marinated plus gr peppers and onions)

7. Chicken Enchiladas (2 cups chopped)

8. Nacho Chicken Casserole (2 cups cubed) double for 1 meal

9. Chicken Spaghetti (2 cups cubed)

10. Anniversary Chicken (6 half breasts)
