Freezer meals are fast, easy, and a great way to get a hot, delicious meal on the table on weeknights when cooking isn’t number one on your massive to-do list. Get started and see just how easy freezer cooking can be!

GET MY FREEZER MEAL PLANS NOW!

To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the marinade & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required!  Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious just marinated at room temperature.  And don’t let the simplicity of the recipe fool you–this is one moist & flavorful meal that your family will absolutely go crazy for!

You can use any type of chicken but my family much prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs, which are a darker, juicier meat and also tend to be cheaper than the boneless skinless breasts.

    I will sure test it soon ! Both your coconut-lime chicken and your slowcooker pot roast are now favorites in our house.

    Can this be adapted to the oven instead of the grill? SOOOOOOOO cold here, minus 5 degrees! Want to make this but need to know if I can do it in the oven or slow cooker.
