Chicken Parmesan (Freezer Friendly!)
Chicken Parmesan has a few extra steps that I don't normally feel in the mood to whip up, but to be able to make this dish ahead and freeze ahead really appealed to me. I normally use the Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan recipe if I'm craving Chicken Parmesan, but that creates "crockpot food"...very yummy but not that appealing to look at!
After baking off the chicken for this recipe, I split it up into two 8 x8 inch pans, one for dinner that night and another for later in the month. I love being able to pull dinner out of the freezer when I'm having one of those nights, or to utilize with my menu plan for a "night off" from cooking.
The homemade sauce was easy to put together, and would be a good sauce to use in a pinch for a recipe where the sauce is an ingredient. (Crockpot Lasagna, Slow Cooker Lasagna Pasta Bake, Eggplant Parmesan) It was simple, but not too plain. It accompanied the chicken in this dish perfectly.
This recipe is now included in my Creatively Domestic's Freezer Meals ebook for sale on Amazon. To view this recipe and many others, please visit (and buy if you're interested) from that site.
