Freezer to Crock Pot - Margarita Chicken

Margarita Chicken is another yummy, spicy dish that can be made ahead of time by mixing the ingredients, then storing it in the freezer until it's time to cook.  Place this in the crock pot, and come home to a tasty meal. Despite its name, it does not have an overt citrus taste.  The flavors blend nicely to make this a terrific main dish.  

This would be a great meal to also add veggie packets.  See THIS POST for information on how to make foil packets for the crock pot. 
Crock Pot Margarita Chicken

4-5 frozen uncooked boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1/4 cup honey
1 T soy sauce
2 minced garlic cloves
3 T liquid margarita mix

Mix sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Place chicken in the bottom of the 1 gallon zippered freezer bag.  Cover with sauce.  Squeeze out air, seal, and freeze.  When ready to prepare, place frozen block in crock pot.  If using packets, prepare and then place on top of chicken and sauce, then cover with lid.  Cook on high for 7-9 hours.   

A little side trick:  When this comes out of the crock pot, the chicken may still look white.  If you would like a little bit of a bark/grilled effect, place the chicken on a foil covered cookie sheet and stick it under the broiler for a few minutes to brown.  Then slice and serve.
