    I'll try to remember what I have for the next week.

    Tonight I'm trying a new recipe from Pinterest in the crockpot - Chicken and bacon with cream of mushroom soup

    Chicken parm
    Tatertot casserole

    Cindy - how do you make the chicken foil packets? Sounds like something we would like.

    Hi Jodi!! I hope you are doing well.

    I love doing foil packets!! I make a few different ones. I usually just buy a bag of the frozen boneless chicken breast and take some time on the weekend to make them all.

    Depending on what you like you can do mostly anything.

    I just lay the foil out. Spray the foil with non stick spray or put a pat of butter down. Put my frozen chicken on it and then put what ever I have on hand on top or what sounds good. Wrap it up, put in zip lock bag, label it and pop it in freezer. I take it out the night before I am going to cook it and let it thaw. I then put it in the oven on cookie sheet at 350 and cook for 1/2 hour or 45 min depending on how many I have in there. Most times I have my husband pop it in before I get home then I just whip up some sides whenI get home. Cooks in the foil so it kind of steams/bakes it. I use these alot because my husband does not eat meat so for me it is easier to do it this way. I do make veggie one's for him! and I am a garlice person so all of the one's below include fresh garlic as well.

    Some I like are:
    Chicken with can tomato and Italian season - Then I cook up some pasta and serve it over pasta.

    Chicken with mushroom soup - Then I either make mashed pots. noodles or rice to go with it.

    Chicken with fresh mushrooms.

    Chicken with sliced onion, green pepper and soy sauce - this one I will make with rice

    I also made some beef packets which I havent tired yet. I used beef tips and did one with mushroom and one with peppers, onions, broccoli and soy sauce. I might have to cook one next week!! I did a fish packet once but did not like it.

    Sorry I rambled on!!
