The 10 Best Chicken Crockpot Freezer Meals in 60 Minutes

All-natural chicken breasts were buy one, get one free at the grocery store last weekend, so I bought 10 packages and turned it into crockpot freezer meals!  It only took me an hour to make the meals and they’re healthy and delicious. (We tried all of the recipes before.)  If you want to do the same, I’m sharing my recipes and shopping list for free below.  Enjoy, Friends!

Last time chicken was on sale, I decided to marinate and freeze 10 packs for the grill, so this time I decided to stock up for my crockpot.  I decided to pick our all-time favorite chicken crockpot recipes that we make over and over again.

Here’s what I made:

  1. Cool Ranch Shredded Chicken Tacos
  2. Shredded BBQ Chicken (yum!)
  3. Chicken Teriyaki from Thirty Handmade Days
  4. Honey Sriracha Chicken Lettuce Wraps (only 5 ingredients!)
  5. Chicken Noodle Soup
  6. Skinny Shredded Buffalo Chicken from Thirty Handmade Days
  7. Honey Sesame Chicken from Damn Delicious (I’ve made this recipe, like, 20 times. So good.)
  8. Chicken Fajitas
  9. Mexican Chicken Chili with Cornbread Topping (even the cornbread cooks in the crock!)
  10. Salsa Verde Chicken (from my Freezer Cooking Cookbook eBooks and shared for free below)


The 10 Best Chicken Crockpot Freezer Meals in 60 MinutesWhat’s so great about these meals?

  • They’re all made with chicken breasts, so I prepped them when all-natural chicken breasts were buy one, get one free at the grocery store and saved $54!!  (The recipes were pretty simple, and I had a lot of the ingredients on-hand, so I only spent $88 total or $8.80 per meal.)
  • None of the recipes require any cooking ahead of time, so I was able to make all 10 meals in an hour (6 minutes/meal).
  • They’re healthy and delicious!

How did I make them in an hour?

My time was super limited this week, so I needed to make these meals as quickly as possible.  I put my one year old down for a nap and bribed my “older” kids (ages 7, 6, and 3).  I’ve made hundreds or thousands of freezer meals in the past so I know exactly what takes the most time during a prep session.  To save time with this set of recipes, I substituted frozen diced onions for fresh ones, garlic powder for fresh cloves, and added the chicken breasts to the bags whole (we’ll shred after cooking).  I changed all of the recipes in the printable pdf above to reflect how I made them.

Thoughts or questions?  Leave a comment below and I’ll respond as soon as I can.  I’d love to hear from you.  XO, Kelly

Meal # 6 – ONE CUP of Frank’s hot sauce? I feel like this will kill us all… even half a cup! Could you please confirm that amount and tell us how hot this will be? yikes…


So many good recipes that I’ve printed as we have a ton of chicken!


[…] only took me an hour to turn the chicken breasts into 10 crockpot freezer meals and then I turned to the pork.  I focused on our favorite recipes and added in two new ones from […]


I’ve made your chicken fajita recipe and your buffalo chicken recipe and both were outstanding! So impressed because most slow cooker recipes turn out a little ho-hum for my tastes, but these were great! Easy, healthy, flavorful. The whole family devoured both meals. I knew the buffalo chicken would be too spicy for my little kids, so I just gave them some of the shredded chicken before I added it back to the sauce and it was fine. Served on buns with generous amounts of blue cheese dressing and carrot, celery and bell pepper sticks on the side. Sooooo good!… Read more »


This might be a dumb question, but do you have to cook the chicken before freezing it? Or does it all cook in the slow cooker?
