I made this 3 ingredient crockpot recipe as a freezer meal. I took a Sunday afternoon and spent 2 hours making 8 meals and this was one of them. This freezer meal took less than 5 minutes to assemble and put in the freezer. When I wanted to prepare the freezer meal I simply pulled it out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw in the fridge. In the morning I dumped it into the crockpot and cooked it on low all day. When I came home dinner was done. If you want to learn more about freezer cooking click here ==>Freezer Meals.

  4. Mmm this looks delicious! Pinning now.

  5. This is a great recipe, I made something similar with turkey and cranberry sauce and it was delicious – must try it with chicken! Thank you for sharing and linking up at #WWDParty. Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Does it get any easier? Thanks so much for sharing this on Tell Me About It Tuesday. Looking forward to seeing what you share tomorrow!

  7. If I wanted to double this recipe; would I need to double all ingredients and water or just parts of it?

  8. I love your website and am new to it. I made this recipe and the sauce was very watery, is that the expected result or did I do something wrong? Your photo of it looks like the sauce clings to the chicken, but mine did not. How could I mess up three ingredients? LOL
