Getting dinner on the table should be simple. With a little prep work, you can be ready for anything the day throws at you in minutes! This Root Beer BBQ Chicken Freezer Meal is a family favorite to throw on the grill.
I am really on a freezer meal kick lately. So I will make one for dinner tonight and one for another day. This is an excellent way to add to your freezer meal stockpile! In a gallon ziplock bag, I put 2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast tenders or breasts and some root beer and bbq sauce along with some salt and pepper. This recipe is perfect if you have a two liter that has gone a little flat. Just use it for this recipe!
PS: These Freezer Bag Holders are a must if you make freezer meals!
