Favorite Freezer Meals

It has been a month since we did a batch cooking day.  So I’ve been doubling some recipes to stash in the freezer to beef up our supply.  You never know when a day might go crazy so it is good to have a few of things ready to go quickly!


A super easy one that gets gobbled up here is Chicken Tetrazini.  I like it because as long as I have Colby cheese on hand then I will have all the other staples available.

This recipe is one that I make two and freeze the extra one.  I like to have one on hand to take to a sick friend, a family with a new baby or just to bless some one.  It isn’t spicy so it appeals to many—besides who can resist cheesy noodles!

Chicken Tetrazini

12-14 oz of noodles—any variety

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1/2 cup milk

8 oz Colby cheese shredded

2 cups chicken cooked and diced

16 oz bag of frozen peas & carrots(optional)

Boil the noodles until slightly under done.  While noodles are cooking, mix soup & milk in a large bowl.  Drain noodles & add to soup mixture.  Add chicken & 1/2 of the cheese.  If you want to add the vegetables it should be done at this point.  Mix well & put in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Top with the remaining cheese.  Bake on 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until hot & bubbly.

Pair with a green lettuce salad & you have a quick easy meal!

Here are some other great freezer meals!

  1. I went back through this post to some of your other freezer recipes and I must say it's been a great blessing! I'm always on the lookout for easy freezer meals and I love that you use homemade BBQ sauce and teriyaki sauce - we have an HFCS-free kitchen and the price of healthy BBQ sauce in the store is astronomical! I'm also planning to try your enchilada recipe, minus the cheese since we're dairy-free for our daughter - easily adaptable recipes are the best!

  2. I am making this recipe tonight! I will post about it and link back to you! Hope it's yummy!

  3. You have some great ideas going on here. I'm giving that lemon chicken a try very soon. Thanks for sharing it.


I love to hear your thoughts, so please share!
