Freezer to Crock-Pot Chicken Curry

I came across this recipe from Mama and Baby Love on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot. I spent about an hour on Saturday chopping veggies, deboning chicken, and mixing up all of the ingredients for the Chicken Curry and the Healthy Mama Barbecue Chicken recipes.

This morning, before I left for work, I pulled the Chicken Curry out of the freezer and threw it in the Crock-Pot on low. When I walked in the door this evening, the smell was absolutely mouthwatering. I made some quick whole grain cous cous to go with it, and dinner was ready—and it was freaking delicious!!

A couple of notes: I used chicken thighs (as the recipe called for), but because the recipe also called for me to cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces, I spent 25 minutes trimming and deboning about 6 chicken thighs. Next time, I might use boneless breasts instead to speed things up. The recipe makes 2 gallon-sized freezer bags’ worth, which equates to a very full 7 qt Crock-Pot. It was enough food for at least two meals for two adults and a toddler, so you might want to plan accordingly.

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
