Eureka! We found it! (The sweet spot between flavorful and kid-friendly, that is.) Whether you make it now or make it later, this easy make-ahead chicken is downright genius. If you like to stock up on freezer meals, you can combine all the ingredients in a freezer bag for ready-to-go frozen meal kits. Or place prepped ingredients in the slow cooker instead for a weeknight dinner that practically makes itself. MORE+ LESS-
