Meal Planning Sunday:How To Freeze Casseroles

Posted on 23 May 2010 by noelskitchen



Meal Planning Sunday

The best thing about making a casserole for a busy mom, is that it’s just as easy to make10-12 servings as it is to make 2-4 servings. And, most casserole freeze well, which means when it comes to meal planning, you can be sure to stock your freezer with those ready-to-eat delicious meals for your family. If you wrap and store your casseroles well, they will last a month or longer.

Planning ahead for the week keeps my family healthy by having those home cooked meals.

Recipe Note: The faster a casserole is frozen, the more savory it will be and the better its texture is.

This is a casserole that is quickly put together and bakes for 25 minutes.

Creamy Asparagus Chicken Casserole

Ingredients:

2 cups water

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup long grain rice rice

1 medium onion, chopped

1 Tablespoon Poultry seasoning

2 Chicken breasts,cooked, cut into strips

2 cups fresh Asparagus tips

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1/4 cup white wine

1/4 cup chicken broth

2 Tablespoons herbed bread crumbs

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a saucepan, add water and salt. Bring to a boil and add rice. Reduce heat to low for 20 minutes. Remove from heat.  Place in a 9×12 baking dish.  Add the onion and poultry seasoning. Spread the mixture evenly in the baking dish.

Arrange the chicken over the rice mixture. Place asparagus tips over the chicken.

In a small batter bowl, combine soup, wine and broth. Spoon over chicken mixture. Sprinkle with the bread crumbs. Drizzle melted butter over the top. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.

Recipe Note: To make cooking easier, I boiled the chicken breasts ahead of time. The casserole can be frozen after the ingredients are combined. Thaw overnight and bake in the oven  at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until heated through. Remember that your freezer is your biggest asset in the kitchen. Simplify your meal planning by using the right freezable containers.
