Today I'm going to show you a sweet and sour chicken freezer meal.
Cooked Basmati rice, cooked carrots from Brookfield Gardens PEI, Chicken from a local Farm Gate small producer named The Egg Man of Hunter River, PEI.
Cook rice set aside, cut and cook carrots set aside. Cook chicken in a slow cooker - cool and refrigerate overnight.
The next day make the sweet and sour sauce.
Sweet & Sour Sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 Tablespoon of ketchup
- 1/2 cup of pineapple juice/chicken stock/or water
- 3 tablespoons of rice vinegar
- 1-2 Tablespoons of light soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons of cornstarch stired into 2 Tablespoons of water.
I double this recipe easily. Place 1-6 in a pot on medium heat and bring to just before a boil. Mix 2 tsp of cornstarch with the 2 Tbs of water. Pour into the sweet and sour sauce and cook until thickens, then cool.
Cut up the chicken into cubes.
Fill your containers with the cooled rice/carrots and then add the sauce to the cut up chicken and put it into the containers. Label the lid with the name and date and heating instructions ex: thaw in fridge, heat 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Enjoy from Grandma's Afternoon,
