Fill the Freezer: Dinner's in the Bag!
Fill 2 or three bags by doubling or tripling the recipe above. Place the ingredients for a single recipe into a gallon sized freezer bag, seal, label with name and date and freeze.  Repeat as many times as you like, filling the freezer with Dinner in a Bag!  When ready to prepare, refer to the original recipe  
Get the Kids Cooking:
Making frozen meals in a bag is a great time to get the kids involved.  They can fill bags, squish bags or even label bags if old enough.  Line up the supplies and let them help!

When making dinner tonight, add a few extra breasts so you are sure to have leftovers to make another meal.  You won’t need extra marinade, there is enough to go around. Serve what you need for dinner tonight and reserve some extras to use in one of these suggested meal trails.
