Freezer/ Slow Cooker Meals: Orange Chicken



Here is another of my favorite Chicken Freezer recipes. I have adapted it to freeze ahead and cook in the slow cooker.


Prep the bags, freeze, then pop into the slow cooker to have an easy and yummy supper. I LOVE the convenience of stocking my freezer with these made ahead meals.

Before you start: 


  1. Place your ingredients on the counter with a mixing bowl for each recipe.
  2. Label freezer bags with Recipe name, date and any additional instructions.
  3. Leave meat in the refrigerator until you are assembling the packs.
I have included measurements for 2 freezer packs to serve 2 adults. If you require enough for 2 adults and 1 child, you can use the same sauce measurements, and simply add another chicken breast or thigh. If you are looking for meals for 4 or more, simply adjust measurements to accommodate.

  • 2 large Carrots, chopped

  • 1 Pepper, chopped (I used 1/2 red & 1/2 orange, you can use green or any you like)
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 can Frozen Orange juice
  • 4 Chicken Breast or Thighs


To Add after cooked:

  • 2 tins Mandarin Oranges
  • 1 Green Onions
  1. Chop veggies and divide into two freezer bags.
  2. Mix sauce ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Add chicken to the two freezer bags, and pour 1/2 sauce over each.
  4. Remove air from bag, seal and freeze flat in freezer.
*** You can also cook rice ahead of time and freeze. Simply freeze serving portions in zippered freezer bags and freeze. To use, place in a bowl or sink of hot water. Pour in a bowl and fluff to serve with your meals. ***
