Cajun Chicken – For the Freezer
2 ˝ to 3lbs chicken pieces (such as legs, thighs or breasts)
1 small onion, chopped
˝ green pepper, chopped

2T olive oil
1 t (heaping) minced garlic
1 can (14oz) diced tomatoes
1T red wine vinegar
1t dried basil
˝ t salt
˝ pepper
1 to 3t hot pepper sauce (such as the brand Tabasco), optional

Put chicken pieces in a gallon size zip type bag.  chop up veggies. In a small bowl assemble sauce ingredients.. Label and freeze. The night before you want to serve this meal take it out of the freezer and let it defrost in the fridge. The chicken will marinate in the seasonings as it defrosts. To cook pour contents of bag into a large pan (11x15 size) and bake at 350 until chicken is done. This can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour depending on the type of chicken pieces used. Serve with mashed potatoes or cornbread and a salad.



Assemble the ingredients (the onion I show in the pic is a very large onion so I only used half of it):

Put the chicken pieces in the gallon size zip bag and chop up the veggies…

Put the veggies in the bag with the chicken..

Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl..

Pour it over the chicken, seal the bag and squish it around so the sauce covers the chicken. Put in freezer..
