Honey Sesame Chicken Crockpot Recipe for Couples

I shall not claim this recipe is totally my own as it is based on 1 I found on the BabyCentre.com. I just adjusted it to suit our own tastes and to make it suitable for a couple. The first time we tried it we realised there was lots of extra sauce, so on the second attempt we added the red pepper and bacon to make it a bigger meal. It is so yummy, nice and sweet and really aromatic. Our kitchen smelt amazing for hours!

Freezer Crockpot Cooking is a new way of pre-preparing multiply dishes ahead of time and freezing them all so on the day all you have to do is place the entire meal in the slow cooker and leave it to cook. It helps save time as you can do all your prep on one day, which is great if you are a working couple and have limited time available in the evenings. It helps save money as you can purchase larger quantities of things, usually getting better prices, which you would have usually found harder to use up if there was only 2 of you, but this way it is all cooked and frozen so nothing is wasted. It can help with dieting as you only prepare enough for 2 portions and don't svn up over eating, which is something we were very guilty of!


Look how yummy it is!
