Recently I’ve been reading a lot of blogs of people who cook ahead for their families and freeze food. At the Campus Kitchen we already freeze a lot of prepared food simply because it is donated to us that way. Many other donations, however, come in from Wal-Mart raw and I’m thinking through cooking these items to have on hand in advance as well. For instance, in January CKWL will process chicken. It won’t take too much effort to convert 4 pans worth of raw chicken breasts into cooked, shredded chicken to have on hand for recipes. Here are a few of our favorites (we substitute ingredients quite liberally based on what’s been donated):
And a few more to try:
- Pesto Chicken Pizza (using garden pesto!)
- Southwest Roll-ups (would be a great afterschool program snack)
What’s your favorite chicken recipe? Could it be adapted for the Campus Kitchen?
