To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the sauce & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, although it is equally easy to prep and make for dinner the same day.

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.

(Note-don’t worry if your chicken isn’t all the way thawed.  It can also cook from frozen, it might just take a little longer.)Add shredded slaw mix to crock pot and cook for about 5-10 minutes until soft.

    What do you do with the 2nd carton of chicken stock?

      You use the second carton of chicken stock to cook your rice noodles. It adds more flavor then water. 🙂

    Do you use one half box of noodles for each bag?

    Do you use one box of noodles for each freezer meal? Or do you use one-half of the box of noodles for each freezer meal?

      It all depends how many people you are going to feed. But you could usually feed 2-3 people on half a box. 🙂
