  • BBQ Chicken - tweeked the recipe from this website.

  • 4 large green pepper, cut into strips or cubes, about 2 cups
  • 2 large red pepper, cut into strips or cubes, about 1 cup
  • 4 zucchini, chopped, about 2 cups

  • 4 tablespoon ground yellow mustard
  • 4 clove garlic, finely minced, about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Divide everything into two separate one gallon freezer bags, shake it up, seal, label and put in the freezer
  2. On the day of cooking, dump it into your slow cooker and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours, or low 6-8 hours, depending on your specific slow cooker
  3. If you want, you can add 1/2 cup of chicken stock to have more sauce, but the liquid from the frozen meat and vegetables melting should give you enough liquid to work with
  4. Every slow cooker is different, so just watch yours the first time you make it. Makes 2, 6-8 Servings.

    1. Gluccie means Glucomannan. Search google and you will find some. I use the powder, not the caps.

  13. You mentioned in your step 1 instructions to: "Divide everything into two separate one gallon freezer bags, shake it up, seal, label and put in the freezer"

    Does this mean you have already doubled the recipe and there are two meals?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes, the recipe is doubled for you. :-)

  17. I am so confused on this one - I made all 20 meals over the weekend. I am working on a binder for all the recipes and the shopping list. In the comments you say this one is doubled but when I cross reference it with the shopping list I ended up with extra sweet potatoes (shopping list says 6) 2 extra can of tomato sauce (shopping list says 4) and I ended up with more bell peppers. Could you take a look at this and let me know. I thinking this one was not doubled or the shopping was off.
    I absolutely love all the hard work you have done on this - I work emergency response and we are in the middle of a winter storm - knowing all I have to do is put this in a crock for my family before I head out to work a response is so wonderful I can't express my gratitude!!!

    1. You are right. The recipe wasn't doubled. I had some issues with some of the recipes and I bet this is one that slipped through. Thanks for pointing it out. I will fix it.

  18. I have been reading the other comments above. Does the recipe now reflect two meals (is this already doubled)? Thanks.

  19. Is the about 4 cups, about 2 cups portion of the ingredients reflect being doubled? I noticed that 3 sweet potatoes make about 4 cups and 2 zucchini makes about 2 cups. Or am I buying larger produce than what you bought?

    1. I think your ingredients must be larger than mine. Size varies I am sure. Yes, the ingredients listed are doubled.
