I love crockpot meals for those busy days we have. About a month ago when I had some family over I prepped a few recipes for the freezer which my hubby thought I was crazy for not making right then, but now we get to have a home cooked meal fresh. This is an easy one to make ahead of time and then I dumped in a bag of broccoli stir-fry veggies the last 30-45 mins of cooking to heat. Once it was ready I served it over rice. The sauce isn’t the typical thick one, but the flavor of the dish is really good and I would make it again.

General Tso Crock Pot Chicken
(Adapted from Joy & Passion)
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
4 tsp minced garlic
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (or more if you like hot)
1 16-oz package stir fry veggies
FREEZER MEAL DIRECTIONS:
Place chicken in resealable bag. Combine remaining ingredients (except veggies), mix well and pour over chicken. Freeze. I put quart bag of chicken, with the bag of veggies, into a gallon ziploc so they were both together and handy.
