Top 5 Christmas Recipes with @ChickenFarmers Giveaway
During the holidays I look for new recipes to add to my list that are healthy, easy, delicious, feed large groups and some that I can prepare ahead. I spend a lot of time preparing meals, appetizers ahead and throwing them in the freezer for the big day, when company pops over or even as gifts. There are meals that can’t be prepared too far in advance but when I’m tight on time I break out some crock pot recipes first thing in the morning to be ready for everyone when we’re ready to eat. Winter automatically gets me in the mood for comfort food but with all the heavier foods we already consume over the holidays, I like to keep our other meals and appetizers healthy with chicken like these Christmas appetizers, crock pot recipes and brunch recipes. This was the first time I’ve made the Chicken Vegetable Pockets recipe but it is an absolute must try for brunch size or making smaller appetizer bites; I made the recipes half and half of each size (see the notes in the recipe for my adjustments). The only problem with it is that I’m not sure how they will make it until Christmas before we eat them all. 😉
