We have bought many of the meal prep containers from Amazon over the last five years.
They can go from freezer to microwave or just in the fridge for leftovers.
At first, we had the rectangle ones then I bought the divided rectangle ones and last I have bought the round ones.
The last ones I bought were a couple of weeks ago and they were $15.00 for 30 of them.
You can find a lot of different sizes of them here:
They last pretty well and its easier than finding a lid to a million Rubbermaid containers that are different sizes. Just remember if you get the same size from different places the lids will probably be different. I honestly hate playing the lid hunt game.
I love using them for leftovers and for lunches.
These work great to take meals to someone special. I use them to take meals to my mother n law and normally I take 3 meals at a time. She loves it because she never knows what she might be getting for dinner.
We eat chicken probably three times a week so I try to come up with different ideas using chicken so it does not get too boring.
Here is one of our favorite recipes.
Brown 8 – 10 chicken breast tenderloins in a little butter.
Then use that same pan to brown some onion 1/2 of a medium sized onion.
Cook the spaghetti noodles
In a bowl mix a large can of cream of mushroom soup, with one can of Rotel tomatoes, and one can of green chilis. The green chilis have this aroma that smells throughout the house and makes your mouth water.
Cut the chicken into bite size pieces stir into the spaghetti add the liquid and 2 cups of cheddar cheese.
I also top with cheddar cheese and bake in the oven for 45 minutes. I cover the pan with foil for all but the last 5 minutes.
Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think.
