Chicken Curry - Freezer Meal


I took advantage of the Fresh market sale and bought 12lbs of chicken for $16!
Last night I made Chicken Curry from the "Fix, Freeze, Feast" book that I got free by using Swagbucks!

Here's the recipe:

About 6 pounds boneless, chicken half-breasts
1 cup butter
2 cups chopped onion
1/4 cup curry powder
2 T minced ginger (I used ground ginger)
2 T minced garlic
2 T sugar
2 T Chicken bouillon (I only used 2 squares)
2 t salt
1 cup flour
4 cups water
4 cups milk
2 T lemon juice
3 one-gallon freezer bags (I used 6 quart bags plus we had one meal for dinner last night) GOOD!

Cut chicken into bite size pieces
Cook over med. heat about 30 min.
Remove from heat and cool
Divide into freezer bags

While chicken cools melt butter in large saucepan over med heat
Add onions, cook until soft 5 min.
Add curry, ginger, garlic, sugar, bouillon, and salt
Cook stirring for 2 min
Add flour, cook, stirring 2 min more
Mixture will be a paste
Gradually add water and milk stirring constantly until sauce has thickened
Add Lemon juice after thickened
Cool sauce
Divide evenly into bags
Seal and Freeze

This turned out SO great!  We served it over brown rice and garnished with peanuts (cheap from Smiths!)

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
