Hi Everyone, how's are you all doing? Haven't been around much since we got back from our vacation, but life stepped in so all else have to be put on the back burner. Hope everyone that's in this heat is surviving ok. After our early fall like weather this high 90 stuff is a big reality shock...yucky. Hubby is gone with his brothers for a guys weekend and I don't even want to know that entails. So with that said I've not been cooking much and I'm needing some ideas for chicken that I can make ahead and freeze.

Delicious lime-marinated chicken and vegetables are folded into hot corn tortillas and served with fresh lettuce, tomato, and sour cream. Add your favorite toppings like taco sauce, guacamole, and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro if you like.

I freeze a lot of rather plain cooked chicken for use later since I am not very good at planning ahead. I did freeze this in the marinade and then thawed and cooked later. We enjoyed it.

Looks really good, thank you so much for the recommendation. I'm definitely going to try this one.

Use a slow cooker to make this chili with chicken, pinto beans, and corn, flavored with salsa, cumin, and chili powder.

I actually used thawed, cooked chicken and homemade salsa verde for this but it would freeze well.

Thanks linda2d, love that it's a slow cooker recipe. Won't heat up the kitchen. :)

Glad to help. I use chicken a lot but I don't freeze a lot of precooked except plain or soups. Where the heck is everyone. Usually chicken questions are quite popular :)

I think everyone is still a bed or getting outside before the heat kicks in. I've been up several hours already got a walk in, feed the horses and watered the plants before I hide inside for the rest of the day.

Hi Elaine, I think you're right in the middle of where this heatwave is, but at least you know what to do. I used to think I was imagining the memory of having the soles of my feet bleed in the summer, but this yr I remembered I used to walk barefoot to the pool, which was abt a mile from our house. The thick air came up so suddenly yesterday, it caught me off guard. But I still walked 2+ hrs - basically because I'd taken a different route and didn't realize how much longer it was! I don't have a lot of freezer space so like to make plain chix breasts and freeze them, to use for whatever calls for cooked chix. Stay cool.
