I froze the packages as I need to not eat so much chicken all at once. Being frozen didn't seem to hurt the product at all. The only negative was an rare/occasional "spongy" feel or fat grissle to the meat. While I noticed it, it didn't happen enough for me to dismiss this product. I still like it and will buy it again. Winner!
The other new item I tried was the Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips. These were good, a tortilla chip with a slightly sweet taste. I liked them, but didn't check the label before buying and the product still has corn as a major ingredient. I am supposed to avoid corn. Too bad for me as they rocked salsa.
Tonight I came up with a polish sausage, pepper, onion, summer squash and garlic skilllet. Easy peasy and delicious.
Kielbasa polish sausage sliced in 1/2" rounds, browned in coconut oil. Add sliced onions and peppers. Towards the very end add the sliced summer squash and some pressed garlic.
I scooped out a bunch out of the pan for me, then tossed some cooked linguine in the pan and coated the noodles with the coconut oil and pan grease. Tossed a few times to intergrate the pasta, meat and vegetable, then served that to my husband. He liked it and the noodles are a good filler for him. I enjoyed it without noodles, but you could add whatever you use as a regular pasta substitute.
