We had another freezer meal tonight--Cheesey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Mt. Olive pickles (grown and canned locally and available for purchase at Walmart) and diced bosc pears with a dash of cinnamon sugar.
For the original recipe at Kraft Foods, click here. I made some variations to accommodate my family's taste and to make a really good freezer meal.
Cheesy BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1/4 cup barbecue sauce (my Marine cousin left a HUGE bottle of Rudy's BBQ Sauce, and told us to go ahead and use it since he was shipped to Iraq, so we did)
Heat oil in skillet to medium-high heat. Add onions; cook 2 minutes. Mix in cooked, shredded chicken and BBQ sauce until heated through. Serve on hamburger buns with a slice of cheese. If freezing: Place chicken mixture into a food saver bag and vacuum seal (or gallon-size zipper bag, press out air, and seal). Thaw in refrigerator 24 hours; heat in microwave and serve.
My daughter ignored the pickle and pears, but she really liked her chicken sandwich and ate every bite. Quite a difference considering she wouldn't touch anything on her plate yesterday! Since this was a freezer meal, it was so convenient to just heat and serve. And tonight was the perfect time to do it because we were all pulled in different directions--my son had baseball practice and my husband has now officially become an assistant coach, and my daughter and I went to a Gardening Club meeting. So it worked out great, and we had a fabulous home-cooked meal without having to "cave in" and resort to fast food!
