The freezer is a fantastic money saving tool. Stockpiling your freezer with ready to go meals is a genius way to save time and it's also a great way to save money.

We've talked about saving money on food for years - like in our series How to Save Money on Groceries without Coupons.  The steps to save money with freezer meals are simple and could pay off big time:
  • watch the flyers for deep discounts
  • stock up on usually big-ticket ingredients - think protein foods - like chicken thighs
  • make some easy prep freezer meals with your low-cost score
  • pop them in the freezer to make a quick and delicious meal in minutes!

This is our latest collection of freezer meals: chicken thighs!  (You can check out our other collection of delicious and simple freezer chicken meals here - that one features chicken breasts!) 

There's so much to love about chicken thighs.  They are more tender than chicken breasts - plus they pack a bigger Iron punch.  Iron is a common nutrient of concern with children - it's the deficiency I see most often in children in my work as a Registered Dietitian.  Chicken thighs are a tasty way to get more Iron into kids.

So when you find chicken thighs on sale - stock up and try one of these freezer chicken recipes. Not all are created specifically for the freezer, so you can make them any time - but they will freeze well and please your family!
