EASY Freezer Asian Chicken

I needed to make dinner the other night so I pulled out my Fix, Freeze, Feast cookbook and I ended up making 3 dinners!   This turned out being really good so I'm even more glad now that I did. :)  The recipe in the book is actually for 6 dinners.  Below are the directions for 3.

Sweet Asian Chicken

chicken breasts- about 3 pounds
1/2 c packed brown sugar

1/2 c soy sauce
1/8 c lime juice
1/4 t curry powder
1 1/2 T minced garlic
1 1/8 t crushed red pepper flakes
2 t peanut oil (I used vegetable oil)

Rinse, trim, & cut chicken into strips
divide into 3 freezer bags
combine sugar, soy sauce, lime juice & curry
divide and pour mixture over the chicken

Add 1/2 T garlic and 1/4 t red pepper to each bag
    (pepper adds a kick but my 2 year old loved it)
seal and gently shake to combine ingredients
label and FREEZE!

and BAM!  You got 3 dinners!

To Cook:
I cut them into smaller strips
heat oil in large skillet
add chicken, I also added a zucchini from our garden :)
stir-fry for 20 - 25 min
serve with rice or noodles.  I stir-fried the chicken and zucchini with Udon noodles and it was excellent!

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!
