Chicken breast recipes that freeze well: this is the first post in a series I’m developing that will save you money on food and time on meal prep.  Chicken breast freezer meals are a home cook’s dream come true!

For years I’ve had this idea: create a go-to list of easy recipes that freeze well for later – organized by sale items at the grocery store. 

Then, when something’s on sale I could make multiple make-ahead meals to max out the savings – and make meal prep super fast on busy weeknights.  This would help us save a bundle of money and hours of time!

As we’ve talked about in our series about saving money at the grocery store without coupons series – if you’re patient and conscious of what’s on special at your grocery store you can save tons of money. 

The concept is simple: on a cyclical basis, grocery stores rotate what is on sale.  By stocking up on sale items you can slash your budget.

This series takes it one step further – stocking up on what’s on sale – and then with a super easy recipe – putting a few meals away in the freezer to be used later to speed up food prep.  Saving money and saving time!

This is the first in the “Easy Recipes to Freeze When ____ is on Sale” Series! (Ok – not the catchiest name – I’ll admit.)  Today we’ve got Chicken Breast Freezer Meals for you…
