Freezer Meals: Cheddar Chicken

This is one of our favorite freezer meals!  You've been seeing it in my menu plans recently, since I just made a batch of it, so I wanted to post the recipe here.


Ingredients (serves 6--I usually double this so it serves 12 and we get three meals from one batch.):

1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons flour
6 ounces shredded sheddar
2 cups cooked chicken
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup seeded diced tomato  (for a double batch, I use 1 can)
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled.

Serve over cooked egg noodles.


Directions:


Mix together milk, broth, & flour in saucepan.  Heat over medium heat stirring constantly until sauce thickens  (this step takes a bit longer for a double batch, but just keep stirring!)  Add cheese, and stir until it melts.  Add chicken, green onions, tomatoes, and bacon.


At this point you can make fresh noodles and serve immediately (we do one meal this way), or you can cool, and pour into freezer bags and freeze for a later meal (we did two like this).


To serve frozen, simply reheat in a sauce pan (the cookbook recommends thawing overnight first, but I just toss it in straight from the freezer!) and make fresh noodles to serve it over.

This recipe comes from one of my favorite freezer cookbooks:
