Crock Pot Freezer Meals 2

Our first post of some crock pot freezer meal ideas & recipes was such a hit we wanted to share some more of our experiments!  These include: Blackberry Meatballs, Breakfast Casserole, Curry Chicken, Cranberry Orange Chicken, and Italian Chicken.  I have received some questions on the other post about if the meat was pre-cooked, the answer is no.  Consider it marinating by combining all the ingredients into the bag and freezing them.  We hope you enjoy this second batch of recipes!
You can see our first post of other origional crock pot freezer recipes here.
You don't have to freeze these, but sometimes having all the ingredients in one bag makes it easy to  throw dinner together.  And great for husbands who don't cook too!
I'd love to hear how these and our others turned out for you! Feel free to email me with questions, comments etc.  atozformomslikeme@gmail.com
