Chicken Pot Pie
This is my all time favorite freezer meal. I've probably made 4-5 rounds of this over the past few years. Each recipe makes 3-4 pies, and I suggest not doubling the recipe unless you have a large soup pot. I've made the mistake before and had to split everything into bowls because my large pot wasn't big enough! We also usually just make this with a top crust instead of bottom and top. This can also be made gluten free by subbing corn starch for flour as the thickening ingredient, and either using no crust or a gluten free crust. It's still just as good!

Baked Penne with Chicken and Sun Dried Tomatoes
Another perfect meal for tonight + one to freeze for later! This one makes 2 2-quart baking dishes. We usually divide it between 3 pans for 2-3 servings each. Great for leftover chicken or shredded quarters. Recipe adapted from - https://www.marthastewart.com/313371/baked-penne-with-chicken-and-sun-dried-t

GF Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole
I love meals that make enough to freeze for later. This makes either 3 - 8x8 pans or 1 16x9 and 1 8x8 pan. Each 8x8 pan feeds about 3. As a family of 2 + a picky toddler an 8x8 pan was perfect with a little leftover for lunch. Plus, there's two more in the freezer for later! As a bonus, this is gluten free. Side note- Each 1/4 chicken package makes approximately 6-8 cups of chicken. Recipe adapted from - https://mygluten-freekitchen.com/chicken-broccoli-rice-casserole-gluten-free/

15 Minute Korean Beef
Ground beef doesn't always need to be made into a burger or taco meat. Here's another easy way to season ground beef to have with Quinoa, Rice or put it on the top of Cauliflower. Make it paleo but eliminating the brown sugar and using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. Recipe adapted from http://smilesandwich.com/2015/01/27/15-minute-korean-beef-quinoa-bowl/

Beef Roast
The rub in the recipe is just one way you can season your roast, but the instructions for how to cook it can be used for any rub recipe. Make sure you don't leave it in the oven too long, it will continue to cook when you let take it out and let it rest! Recipe courtesy - https://www.frugalmomeh.com/2016/07/sirloin-tip-roast.html

Avocado Chicken Burritos
These burritos are a perfect solution for leftover chicken or shredded chicken. They're quick and easy and a little different than your typical burrito flavor. These are great for a frozen single burrito solution as well. Once they're cooked, individually wrap them and toss in the freezer to be heated up later!
