Mexican Chicken

Welcome back! Today, I’ll guide you through the process of preparing a delicious Mexican chicken dish that you can freeze and cook in your crock pot later. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Combine Ingredients

First, gather your ingredients – black beans, corn, salsa, and your favorite seasonings. I usually go for taco seasoning, pepper, and Mrs. Dash. Mix these ingredients in a bowl.

Step 2: Prepare the Chicken

Next, slice your chicken breast into thin strips. Mix the chicken with the seasoned ingredients in the bowl. This will help the flavors infuse into the chicken.

Step 3: Freezing Process

Take a freezer-safe bag and place the seasoned chicken mixture inside. Make sure to squeeze out any excess air before sealing the bag. This step helps in preserving the flavors.

Now, lay the bag flat on a cookie sheet and place it in the freezer. Freezing the bag flat will help the ingredients to freeze evenly and make it easier to store.

Step 4: Cooking in the Crock Pot

When you’re ready to enjoy your Mexican chicken dish, simply take the bag out of the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. Once thawed, you can empty the contents into your crock pot and cook on low for a few hours until the chicken is tender and flavorful.

TL;DR

Prepare a flavorful mix of black beans, corn, salsa, and seasonings. Slice and mix the chicken with the ingredients, freeze flat in a bag, and cook in the crock pot when ready.
