Ugly picture alert.
Below is a picture of my container of cooked and frozen salsa chicken. It looks kind of…eh.
Makes you want to get right into the kitchen and make some yourself, doesn’t it? It’s a shame, really, to put that picture at the top of a blog post. Trust me though, when I say that as ugly as that chicken is in its frozen state, it really is a delicious dish. The best part is how easy it is to make this. Ready to get started?
You’ll find the recipe for Black Bean Chicken Nachos here. Simply get your chicken and salsa cooking (double the recipe). This chicken cooks on its own while you work on something else. Then, you can add the beans and serve part of the chicken dish at lunch or dinnertime. Allow the remaining chicken to cool, then, freeze it in a jar or Ziploc bag to pull out and serve another time.
If that wasn’t the easiest freezer cooking you’ve ever done, I don’t know what is.
Below you’ll find a much more attractive picture of this meal. Serve it with fresh fruit, and you’ve got one very easy and family friendly meal – times two, because now you also have one for your freezer. I’m loving this freezer cooking challenge!
