Easy Teriyaki Chicken (crock pot)

Quickly I'm going to answer a question. I pull out all my oven (in Pyrex) meals in the morning so they defrost on my counter top . So the cooking time is the same. If you pull them straight from Freezer to Oven, which is fine, it just keeps your oven on longer, cook for an additional 30-45 minutes. Oh and I don't preheat, I just plop the food in right when I turn on the oven. Some ridiculous part of me thinks this helps the frozenness adjust better to the hottness. Slowly getting warmer :)

Made this yesterday so I cannot tell you if it tastes good, but it smelled good :)

2-3 lbs skinlees chicken pieces.
20 oz can pineapple chunks. (juice and all)
dash of ground ginger
1 cup teriyaki sauce

With the chicken there are options, I bought at Harmons already cubed fresh chicken breasts. Same price per pound, why wouldn't you. They didn't have enough so I had my butcher cut more, so if your store doesn't sell it that way I bet they can do it for you. Or you can get the fresh chicken breast strips and then just have to cut the additional direction, or you can get the entire breast and cube it your self. cut into about 1-2" pieces.

To save dishes, I just pulled out my gallon size freezer bags wrote on them and then dumped everything in them. Seal TIGHTLY squish it all around to mix and plop in the freezer.

Place bagged goods in slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs or high 4-6 hrs. I'd serve over instant rice with a side of veggies:)

How many servings does this make? I'm totally making this for freezer emal group this week and just wondering how much to make.

This sounds awesome! I'm excited to try it. I as well am a HUGE fan of freezer meals, although I'm not as picky and I feel like the Freezer Meal group that I joined is one of the best things in the world!!!

How are you guys doing? Where are some pictures of your kids?
