I made this a couple weeks ago and my family loved it. I mean LOVED it.

I think for freezing purposes, you could cook the chicken in advance, then make the sauce separately and freeze separately.

To prepare, dump both, frozen, into a crockpot and let it cook on low all day.

Great idea! I cooked it all together. We'll be making this recipe again.

I make a 'kit' out of this recipe. I dice up the chicken. I then either lightly brown it and then add to a freezer bag or just add directly to a bag. I make the sauce until dissolved and then add to a bag. In a larger gallon-size bag, I add my measured rice, the chicken bag and the sauce bag. If I want some stir-fried veggies with it, I also add a bag of the frozen veggies. On serving day, everything is ready in the big bag.
