Freezer Meal: Honey Sesame Chicken

I don’t know what I’d say to you today…

It’s drizzling and the weather’s cold, plus it’s a friday. Totally, a bed weather day if you ask me. I have tons of things to do but I’d like to put everything on hold, have a movie marathon at home with lots of snacks on the side, or better yet — catch up on sleep.

I understand that it’s times like these when you don’t want to cook and just lounge around the living room all day with the kids. Ordering in may not be an option because (a.) you ordered your dinner last night, (b) it’s too expensive to order, or (c) you crave for the warmth of a homecooked meal.

Thank goodness Moms are pure geniuses!

Freezer Meal: Honey Sesame Chicken

We always have a Freezer meal ready for moments like this… Remember, this Honey Sesame Chicken which I marinated in my Glad Storage Bag and then kept in the fridge for later?

Today is the perfect time to take them out. It’s the easiest thing to prepare and one I can do with my eyes closed and with one hand tied at my back. All you have to do is put them in a crock pot or a pot and let it simmer on super low heat for a long time.

This will give you super tender pieces of chicken with amazing flavors! Top it on rice and garnish with some sesame seeds and spring onions! Yum!

See ya later, I can hear the couch calling my name. Happy Friday!

  1. You are a brilliant Mom! Dinners like this – ready to go, homemade and wholesome, are right up my alley. I’ve enjoyed this peek into your freezer, What else have you got in there?

  2. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Peachy! I was just looking at my bottle of sesame oil and was wondering what I’d cook with it (I’m so clueless in the kitchen!). I will definitely make this one!

  3. This looks like a great recipe to try! Plus, it’s easy. That’s always a plus! I do agree with you on the days I just want to lounge around instead of cooking and coming up with a complicated meal. 🙂

  4. I love chicken recipes and I’d like to try this one. The husband is a “turbo expert”while I’m the one who tries to make meals that my MIL does not usually serve like cordon bleu, homemade burger steak, and pineapple chicken with oyster sauce.Thanks for sharing 🙂 Saved a screenshot of the recipe 😉

  5. Awesome recipe! I like easy to prepare meals. I hope to try this also. Hubby is our kitchen expert but I would love to learn more recipes. As a mom, it is one of my goals.

  6. Kainis ka, sis! Nagutom ako with all your food posts and great food shots!
    I’m actually trying to stay away from your blog kasi I feel so useless around the kitchen after seeing all your great recipes haha!
    No, seriously, ang galing mo 🙂 Will save this link so I can try this chicken recipe at home 🙂
    God bless!

  7. Wow nice idea tong freezer meal! When you don’t have any idea what to cook and too lazy to move around, and yet surprisingly meron pa palang ulam sa fridge! And it’s easy to prepare! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. Yum! Nagugutom na naman ako 🙂 .. I love meals with honey mixture. Skinless chicken so this recipe is something healthy pa. Love it!

  9. This looks yummy and so perfect for a cold rainy day indeed. Bookmarking this recipe for some other time, when I can no longer think of what to do with chicken breast since I always have some in the fridge. 🙂

  10. I can definitely relate! There are days when I don’t feel like cooking at all. This will save me during those days. Looks yum!

  11. Having freezer meals is a brilliant idea. I think we should do this too. I can just allot one day for cooking for the week then just heat them daily.

  12. Freezer meal is what I usually do before when I was in HongKong. Ginutom ako bigla sa recipe mo Ms.Peachy.
    I’ll try to cook this next week.

  13. It doesn’t look difficult to make at all! For people like me who barely cook, that’s a perfect recipe: easy and delicious. Lol! Thank you so much for sharing this!

  14. You are a genius. I.havent tried cooking something then putting it inside the freezer. Though I cook in advance as well, anticipating the days I will be lazy , I often store my cooked meals in a Tupperware and just stock them inside the ref. And I need to.serve them soonest for.fear that they will spoil. Your technique is again, genius! Thanks for.sharing.this. I will definitely do this.

  15. Oohh, exactly what I was looking for. I am into make-ahead meals since being yaya-less and this recipe will surely make my life easier. Thanks!

  16. This is a great idea. I rarely prepare freezer meals. This will really help me in times of busy schedules. Like a grab and cook meal. Thanks for the idea.
    I’d like to try this one. I haven’t perfected a honey glazed chicken yet that I am well satisfied of. Haha

  17. I haven’t tried freezing meals but I’ve read it’s a popular practice abroad. Maganda ito when the mom works out of home or pwede din for me when I have plans of going for a long time, para di na mag pa deliver ng food, mas tipid.

  18. This is so easy to prepare! I might include this on our meal plan for next week for my hubby’s packed lunch in the office. 🙂
