(This video was made when our site was NWO Savers but we are now ecoMomical Me!)
In the above video I show you how I made 6 Freezer meals for $7.73 using split-chicken breast. If you can not watch the video then go to our ecoMomical Me YouTube Channel. While you are there be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
TIP: Watch the size of your portions, if a recipe makes way to much for your family for one meal, cut in half! This helps save money also!
To Freeze: Simply cover with foil, write directions on foil with a sharpie marker (before putting on container). When ready to use thaw in refrigerator for at least 24 hours, cooking time is usually longer when previously frozen.
