We are all very busy people. We have jobs, kids, baseball practice, etc. Because of our busy lives we don’t get to eat dinner together very often. I took 5 of my favorite slow cooker recipes and put together a plan to spend 1 hour in the kitchen assembling 5 freezer bags with dinners that I can just throw in the slow cooker! Slow Cooker freezer meals will make your life so much easier!
With this list below you will have Garlic Honey Chicken, Beef Burritos, Chicken Fajitas, Hawaiian Chicken, and Teriyaki Pork Chops. These dinners easily feed our family which consists of 2 adults and 3 kids.

- 2 Lbs London Broil
- 5-6 Lbs Chicken
- 4 Pork Chops (about 1 inch thick)
- Brown sugar
- White sugar
- White vinegar
- Garlic cloves – 12
- Soy sauce
- Large can of pineapple chunks
- Onions 1 large or 2 small
- Whole peppercorns
- Apple cider vinegar
- 16 oz plain tomato sauce
- 1 chipotle pepper (you can buy a small can and freeze the leftovers)
- Chili Power
- Chicken broth
- Peppers (Your choice for the Chicken Tacos)
- Taco seasoning
You will need more ingredients, but you just need the ingredient above to make your bags.
First take 5 large freezer bags. Grab a Sharpie and label each bag. You should also write the instructions on the bag. Cut up the onions – half slices and half diced, cut up the peppers, and peel the garlic (You can dice the garlic as you fill up your bags).
Go through and add all the meats to the bags. Then go back and add the rest of the ingredients. (You can fill them up in any order, this was just my preference.) Freeze the food and make sure the food will fit in your Slow Cooker when it’s frozen. Take them out in the morning and cook according to the instructions.
- 2-3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup vinegar
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
- ½ cup of pineapple juice (use what’s in the can)
- ½ can of large pineapple chunks
Add all the ingredients to the bag. Cook 4-5 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low. Serve it over rice and enjoy. While I am cooking the rice I like to shred the chicken and put it back in the juice before I serve it.
