Freezer Chicken Parmigiana

This recipe was SUPER easy, and really good!  I got it from Fix, Freeze, Feast: Prepare in Bulk and Enjoy by the Serving - More than 125 Recipes.  This is such a handy book!

6 Chicken Breast halves (recipe in the book is double this)
1/2 c flour
2 eggs
6 slices Mozzarella cheese
3 cups Red Sauce (I used Prego from my storage)
1 c dry breadcrumbs

Rinse and trim chicken
Lay out 3 shallow dishes
   put flour in one, eggs in another, and breadcrumbs in the third
Slightly flatten chicken by laying on cutting board and pressing down.  --Comes out better with flatter chicken (pictured is way too thick!)

Coat chicken with flour, dip in egg, then coat with breadcrumbs

Place on greased baking sheet and put in the freezer for an hour until frozen
Seal in freezer bag

If you want to freeze the sauce and cheese so it's altogether:
   measure 1/2 c per half breast in a freezer bag
   cut enough slices of cheese, wrap in plastic wrap 
   add both to chicken bag

When your ready to eat:
Thaw completely
Preheat to 375
Use greased baking dish
Bake for 20 min.
Pour on red sauce and cook for 10 min
Bake until done (thickest part of chicken is 170 degrees)
Place on cheese, bake until melted
Cheese bars or slices $1.50

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
