Chicken Scampi

Chicken Scampi

This is one of my freezer recipes.

The amount on the left makes 4 meals for 4 people each, and the amount in parenthesis on the right makes 3 meals for a family of 3 each. (Or use it all for a potluck)
These are my measurements, and they've been tried many times, but they're not exact percentage breakdowns, rather, my own tastebuds at work

**It's really important that you use the "Homade" brand chili sauce. I've tried it with others and it just isn't as good)

Here's what you do on "Prep Day"

10 cloves of garlic (6)
2-1/2 Tbsp parsley, chopped (1-3/4 T)
1 c. fresh lemon juice (1/2 c. + 2 Tbsp)
2 c. white wine (1-1/4 c.)
2 c. olive oil (1-1/2 c.)
1-1/3 Tbsp salt (1 Tbsp)
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp garlic powder (1 Tbsp + 2 tsp)
3/4 c. oregano {yes, 3/4 cup} (1/2 c.)
2 c. "Homade" brand chili sauce (1-1/4 c.)
16 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4" cubes (10)

Combine all ingredients. Mix well.


Divide into family-sized portions and freeze each portion in a good quality freezer bag. Lay each one flat in the freezer till it's frozen, and then stack them like books to save space.


Here's what you do on "Cooking Day:
Cook contents of one freezer bag on low setting of crock pot 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.
Serve over hot cooked angel hair pasta.

Julie - I was actually thinking of you when I posted - you'll love it!
It's great to have in the freezer when you find out you'll be having guests the next evening!

Jkath I came her looking for a new way to do chicken and thanks to you, I found it. Your recipe sounds great, but I do not have angel hair but will use soba noodles instead. Thanks again

I had this for a late lunch today, it was GRRRRRRRRRREAT! I only used 4 chicken breasts though. I had one chicken breast over some rice. The other three I froze in freezer baggies with some sauce. So, each time I want it, all I will have to do is reheat and have it over rice again or pasta.
