>Freezer Meals Reduce Stress and Tenderize Meat

>Prepping meals one day a week will reduce cooking time, increase flavors and make meat more tender. This video post covers a typical freezer meal prep day for me and will showcase 3 meals for cooking later in the week. Enjoy the video and then look below for the recipes.

My rule of thumb is: if it is frozen prep it frozen. It is perfectly fine to use frozen meat when prepping freezer meals as they will marinate fully in the thawing process. I don’t recommend thawing frozen meat to prep meals and then refreezing them or refreezing previously frozen meat.

Chicken Marsala
In a freezer bag combine:
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Wildtree Marsala Sauce
2 TBSP Butter GSO
1 cup sliced mushrooms (if desired)
Place in freezer. Pull this meal out of the freezer the night before you’d like it for dinner and allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight and until nearly dinner time the next day.
Cooking instructions:
Heat a frying pan over medium heat with a little GSO. Sear chicken quickly on both sides to brown (leaving sauce in the bag). Add 1 cup sliced mushrooms (of desired and not frozen with the meat) and Marsala sauce from the bag. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

Orange Fusion Chicken

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup orange juice
1 TBSP Wildtree Pacific Fusion
Place in freezer. Pull this meal out of the freezer the night before you’d like it for dinner and allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight and until nearly dinner time the next day.
Cooking instructions:covered baking dish, cook covered at 325 until chicken is cooked through (about 20 – 25 min.), removing lid last 5 minutes to allow browning. Remove chicken to resting plate. Place sauce in skillet on medium low heat and cook until it thickens, about 5 minutes. Pour over chicken to serve.

Balsamic Chicken Wings
1/3 cup WT Balsamic Dipping Oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 lbs chicken wings or drumsticks
Place in freezer. Pull this meal out of the freezer the night before you’d like it for dinner and allow to thaw in the refrigerator overnight and until nearly dinner time the next day.
Cooking instructions:
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Put chicken on Large Bar Pan or foil lined baking sheet and bake for about 35 or 40 minutes.
