Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake

I was given some cilantro by a neighbor the other day and was itching to use it. I LOVE cilantro. I scoured my Pinterest Food Board and came across this Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake recipe. Most of the ingredients I had on hand, but I also had to do some improvising. Here’s the original recipe. My version is below.

Update: Slow Cooker Freezer Meals

A couple of months ago we finished off the freezer meals I prepared back in May. In short, I was sooo disappointed with them :( ! Here’s a quick summary:

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo:  At first, this tasted pretty good, but after several bites it just got gross.

Beef Stew:  This was actually edible and tasted ok. It’s not worth making again, though.

Maple Dijon Glazed Chicken:  We ate this over rice. Without the rice it would have been inedible. It looked really gross, too, lol.

Cilantro Lime Chicken with Corn and Black Beans:  This was ok. It would have tasted better served with tortilla chips. I won’t make it again.

Italian Beef Sandwiches:  We would definitely make this again. It’s one of our favorites. I think it tastes better as a non-freezer meal, though.

The original post is below with my updated comments included at the beginning of each recipe. Hopefully you’ll have better luck than I did with freezer meals!

In preparation for our baby girl’s June 6th due date, I decided to make some freezer meals. With the help of my bother, I was able to prepare five freezer meals in less than an hour (including clean up). Not too shabby! The grocery shopping probably took an additional hour. I’m just not a very efficient grocery shopper, plus I just despise doing it! Look at all those groceries :/ (most of them were for the freezer meals, but not all).
