Freezer Cooking Day 2–Results February 2, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — srowe5 @ 8:03 am

Aaaahhh.  So my two day freezer cooking spree is over and I feel pretty good about the results!!  This is what I was able to accomplish yesterday:

  • 2 Chicken Delight Casseroles

This recipe is a favorite of mine that I remember from my childhood.  My mom made this casserole many, many times and I always have fond memories of it.  I LOVE it!  It’s so easy, so tasty, and so great for a crowd!  It’s actually called Turkey Delight, but with all the chicken I have, I swapped, and chicken works just a good.

If you’re interested, here’s the tasty recipe:

4 cups cooked Turkey (or chicken)

3 eggs slightly beaten

1 cup cooked rice

1 cup breadcrumbs

3 Tbl melted butter

2 cups chicken broth

1.5 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

Mix all together and bake in a 9×13 pan 50 min @ 350

Yeah.  Super easy!  Here’s the recipe for the sauce that goes with it.  I don’t always make the sauce—the casserole is just as tasty and yummy on its own—but, it’s great to have, especially if you’re having company for dinner.

Sauce:  (Double to have enough for 6 or more)

3 Tbl butter

3 Tbl flour

cook both of those, then add:

1 cup chicken broth

3 Tbl cream or milk

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup sliced mushrooms

**Add parsley and mushrooms last and cook to a creamy sauce

  • Boiled and shredded 12 more pounds of chicken
  • Chicken Stock
  • Chicken Noodle Soup (I substituted this for dinner tonight!)
  • Cream of Chicken Soup

I have never made my own creamed soup, but I am now a believer.  I ran across THIS recipe from Tammy’s Recipes and thought I’d try it.  There can be all sorts of “junk” in canned creamed soups, so I was eager to try this and it turned out great!  So easy, so tasty!  I wish I would have tried this a long time ago!

  • I made one more Meatloaf, froze much more of the ground beef, and still have 5 more pounds in the fridge to do something with!!

So, all in all, a pretty accomplished day.  I forgot to take a picture of the end result,  but you get the idea!!  I’m hoping these freezer cooking days are something I can keep up EVERY month!

Oh, yeah, and another little highlight from yesterday:


We have a 5 month old sitting up on her OWN!!

  1. Mom Says:

    I’ve never made creamed soups before. That’s a great idea, esp. with all the additives in the soups we buy, like you said.
    We showed Anna’s pic. (the phone one you sent) yesterday to Stu and Annette. They asked how she was doing. Dad took half a day off, and we drove to Vancouver to sign some papers.
    Will you be celebrating Rita’s birthday with her?
