Make Ahead Chicken Thighs Can Be a Lifesaver!
These slow cooker chicken thighs are very tasty. They can be eaten just as they are OR used to make just about ANY meal…
I try, Try, TRY to keep a menu plan and schedule most of the time. But life happens. We get busy and sometimes stuff has to go. Sometimes I just plain forget too 🙂
Freezer meals and make-ahead casseroles are the bomb. I love them! But (yeah, there’s another but) I’m a moody creature too. I don’t always want what I had planned.
That’s where making meats ahead comes in so handy. You can make these ahead, cut them up and freeze. They are then ready to make any dish you can imagine that calls for chicken. Absolutely perfection for busy day meals!
They take less than 5 minutes to toss in the slow cooker and I’ve cooked them overnight with success every, single time.
