Chicken & Vegetable Soup Recipe

I broke up these meals a bit differently for cooking. Instead of tackling all the chicken meals at once, I broke them up by cooking style and paired the Chicken-Biscuit Casserole with the Vegetable Soup and Beef & Vegetable Soup, which shared many of the same ingredients.

Yesterday, I marinated and seasoned 12 chicken breasts for baking. I did the easiest thing first and placed them on a baking sheet and let them cook away.

Next, I diced up a medley of vegetables into bite size pieces to use through out the entire cooking plan. It included broccoli, celery, carrots, onions, green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers, cauliflower, and zucchini.

I placed two huge pots on the stove and filled one of them with the ingredients for the Chicken-Biscuit Casserole and the other with the ingredients for Vegetable Soup. I did double each recipe! The Chicken-Biscuit Casserole called for cooked chicken, while I planned to to toss some beef into one of my Vegetable Soups to make it Beef & Vegetable Soup, so I placed diced chicken and beef on a cookie sheet and baked it with the chicken breasts until done.


While everything was either boiling, simmering, or baking away, I threw the ingredients for 3 quiches into 3 Ziploc bags and shook until mixed well. Then, I removed as much air as possible and froze them flat to enjoy at a later date.


Next, I got the marinade ready for the Beer & Brown Sugar Steaks and Teriyaki Pork Chops for tomorrow. I also whipped together a quick Quesadilla Kit and placed it in the freezer.

By that time, things began to finish up, so I placed them around the kitchen to cool, before putting them into Ziploc bags for storage in the freezer.


This was an easy cooking day. Basically, in a little under 3 hours, I had 11 more meals prepared and ready to go.
