I'm a bachelor and this is a quick way to have three or more meals fast. What you need depends on what you want to make.
Take boneless chicken breasts and cook in the crock pot with about 2 cups of water on high. Cooking time is a couple hours. Make sure the chicken falls apart with a fork.
Split the chicken into portions to feed the appropriate number.
Freeze in zip lock bags or air tight containers. If some of the chicken is for fajitas, cover with fajita seasoning before freezing. Each recipe requires the chicken to be sliced or chopped up. You can save time and freeze it appropriately.
Slice up the green peppers and onions into strips and brown in a frying pan. Add your chicken (thaw if frozen) cut into strips (if you didn't cut them before freezing). Generously sprinkle on fajita seasoning. Cooked until browned nicely.
Put the wraps on a microwave safe plate and cover with a paper towel. Dampen the paper towel first, just wet your hand and flick water onto the towel. Don't put the paper towel in the water; too wet. Microwave for a minute to make hot. You may need to heat them more. Do in thirty second intervals. If you make them too hot you have to wait for them to cool and they harden and get brittle.
Spread mayonnaise or sour creme through the center of the wrap. Add the chicken and veggies. Fold the bottom of the wrap up about an inch to an inch and a half over the chicken. Fold each side over the chicken. Enjoy
Chop up the chicken (if you didn't do that before freezing) and add to a bowl. Add mayonnaise, chopped onions (if desired) and chopped sweet pickles. Stir up and spread over bread or buns.
Chop up the chicken (if you didn't do that before freezing) and add to a pot with the canned gravy. Heat up and spread over biscuits.

Thats a really good idea. I will have to think about doing that after the holidays. The less time I can spend in the kitchen the better I like it. I tell people I am allergic to kitchens.
