Plan ahead for easy meals with these chicken dump dinners!

You know those people who come home from the grocery store every Sunday and meticulously chop their vegetables and wash their fruit and basically make life as easy as possible on themselves for the rest of the week?

I am not one of those people. I want to be, but I’m just not.

I always admire them and then go right back to scrambling for dinner every night like a madwoman.

Until, that is, I saw the idea for chicken dump dinners over at The Chaos and The Clutter. This is meal prep that I can totally get behind. It’s so simple—you’re just dumping things in a bag!

I came up with three new chicken dump dinners to suit my family and I think you’ll love them. Best part? It took me 30 minutes to prep 15 meals. 30 minutes! 

Also the chicken does not need to be thawed before adding it to the bags or before cooking. If the chicken is still frozen before cooking, cook on low for 8 hours.

 

Tex Mex Chicken Dump Dinner

We’re starting with this because I could eat tacos every day and never get tired of them.

Here’s what you’ll need:

●      10 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

●      5 packets Old El Paso™ taco seasoning

●      5 packets ranch seasoning

●      5 14.5 ounce cans Muir Glen™ Fire-Roasted Diced Tomatoes

●      5 gallon-sized zip-top freezer bags

●      Serves 6 - 8, depending on portion size

You’ll see that I’ve only photographed the ingredients for one bag at a time. I think it’s easier to see what’s happening (and also the area that I photograph food is itty bitty and ten pounds of chicken would take up some serious space).

Divide everything between the 5 bags and just toss it all in. The bags will go in your freezer until you’re ready to use them.

Add the contents of one bag directly to the slow cooker from the freezer and cook on low for 8 hours. Alternately, thaw first and cook on low for 4 hours. Shred with a fork and make yourself a taco. Or serve the chicken over tortilla chips. Or use it as a filling in burritos. Or bury yourself under a pile of this meat, because it’s actually that good.


Philly Chicken Dump Dinner

Next up is a personal favorite sandwich: Philly Chicken! These sandwiches are packed with flavor.

Here’s what you’ll need:

●      10 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

●      5 green bell peppers

●      5 red bell peppers

●      3 onions

●      3 tablespoons seasoned salt

●      5 gallon-sized zip-top freezer bags

●      Serves 6 - 8, depending on portion size

Slice up your peppers and onions into thin strips. Divide everything evenly among the bags,  seal, freeze, and forget about it until you’re ready to cook.

Dump the contents of one bag straight from the freezer directly to the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. If you thaw the mixture first, you'll want to cook on low for just 4 hours. When done, shred the meat with a couple of forks.

Place on a hoagie roll and serve with some chips or veggies.

 

Maple Dijon Chicken Dump Dinner

Last, but not least, is this Maple Dijon Chicken. You just need three ingredients for this one!

●      10 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

●      1 2/3 cup dijon mustard

●      1 1/4 cups maple syrup

●      5 gallon-sized zip-top freezer bags

●      Serves 6 - 8, depending on portion size

I think you know the drill by now. Dump everything evenly between the bags, seal, and refrigerate or freeze.

When you're ready to cook these, just add the frozen mixture from one bag to the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours. Otherwise, thaw the mixture and cook on low for 4 hours. Shred the meat and serve!

We like the Maple Dijon chicken over rice, but it’s also pretty good on a sandwich bun.
