This week I decided to try some new freezer recipes. It seems that with changes in the seasons, I always get bored with what we have been cooking and am ready to try something new. So, I grabbed my copy of: Don’t Panic Dinner’s in the Freezer and picked several new recipes.
I already know that one of our favorite recipes (Cheesy Chicken Bundles p.81) came from this book, but I wanted to try new things.
Here is what I tried and our comments:
Buttermilk Herb Chicken Breasts (p.80) We thought this was very yummy, but it did call for Buttermilk which I do not usually keep on hand. Also, we have another chicken marinade which is delicious, and we decided this was good for a little change, but we like our favorite one better.
Beef Chimichangas (p. 120) – OK, this was a winner. We LOVE it. I used whole wheat tortillas instead of flour and used the lower fat method the authors added as a note. We will be making this one again! Oh, and I used half ground venison and half ground beef to reduce the cost and fat.
Colorado White Chili (p.69)-Completely YUMMY. Next time, I will double the beans. Delicious!
Honey Pork Chops (p. 135) – This was very good. Next time I will reduce the honey by half. Everyone else thought it was perfect, but I thought it was too sweet.
Now, I want to try the Oriental Sesame Chicken Strips (p.108), but I cannot find the Good Seasons Oriental Sesame Dressing in my local stores, so I am checking to see if I can find something suitable for a substitute.
This week I am trying:
- Pecan Stuffed Chicken Breasts (p. 109)
- Baked Blueberry French Toast (p. 204)
- French Onion Soup (p. 72)
- Cranberry Chicken (p.97)
I may not actually eat all these this week. Since they are freezer meals, I may just prep them and put them up for another time.
Have you made any really yummy freezer meals lately?
