This isn’t really a recipe, more like a freezer tip/technique called flash freezing. So if you have a favorite way of preparing chicken broccoli Alfredo then try it with this freezer technique. I’m using a quick version to prepare this dish. I’m also going to show you how to make frozen sauce cubes if you prefer a really creamy alfredo.
Flash freezing is simply taking cooked/uncooked food, spreading it in a single layer on a baking sheet and freezing it rapidly in the freezer. Once frozen the food is then transferred to freezer-friendly bags or containers. Flash freezing make reheating frozen food MUCH easier and quicker. Instead of having a big frozen blob of food to unthaw you have individually frozen pieces. You can flash freeze meats, veggies, fruits, cookie dough, waffles, all kinda stuff!!!
OK, I’m sure you’ve had one of those frozen Skillet Sensations/Easy Express Skillets/ meals from the grocers right? They run about 4-8 bucks a bag and says it’s suppose to feed 2 people. Um….try 1 person in my household! I always have to get two bags. I love the fact that they are pretty tasty and cooks in 12-14 minutes but you definitely don’t get that bang for your buck like when you prepare them yourself.
It’s pretty quick to make as well. I usually pick one lazy Sunday a month and prepare several varieties. They taste so much better than the store-bought bags and you get soooo much more. It comes in handy on those super busy days when you need a quick, healthy, homemade lunch/dinner. I like to make these up and take it to my chicas during that last month of pregnancy. You’d think I’d brought over diamonds! You can use any combination of your favorite pasta, sauce, meats and veggies.
Ok here’s the freezer tip that I like to use for these frozen skillet meals. It’s gonna prevent your meals from being one big frozen blob when you go to prepare it. And if you’ve ever froze a skillet meal then you know what I’m talking about. You go to cook it and it takes FOREVER!! The bottom part is always overcooked..it’s a mess.
