Eating from the Freezer & Pantry~Week 3

Weekly Meal Plan for June 5th ~ 11th


Weekly Grocery Savings: 40% 

Recipes:

Chicken Chilaquiles


Texas Caviar (bean salad)

Mine is similar to this one, except I don't use bottled dressing.  Instead I just mix up a quick vinaigrette with what I have on hand.  Usually 4 TBS vinegar, 2 TBS sugar, 2 TBS oil.  It's good with cucumbers in it too.



Crockpot Creamed Chicken

This is standard Sunday lunch fare.  I've been making it for years.  You can substitute fat free cream of chicken and 1/3 less fat cream cheese to make it a little healthier.  You can also put the chicken breasts in frozen and they will cook up just fine (takes longer).  **NOTE:  The link recipe calls for cooking the chicken in water 3 hours, then adding cream cheese and soup.  I don't do this.  I just put everything in the crockpot and cook on low 4 hours.  DONE!  (If the breasts are frozen it will take 6+ hours on low).  Before serving, I shred the chicken up and stir well with sauce to combine.
