Dump Chicken

Dump chicken is one of my favorite freezer-friendly meals. It’s literally as easy as throwing in your favorite ingredients, adding your chicken, and freezing it! That’s what makes dump chicken recipes so awesome.
For the recipes below, I use about 4-6 chicken breasts. I prefer to buy whole chicken breasts, skin & cut them myself, but you can buy them ready to use. You can also use chicken hindquarters, especially if you plan on grilling them!

If you are making a lot of different kinds/batches, start by having your chicken cut and ready to save time. I get it ready and put it in the fridge until I am ready for it.  Some people start by putting their chicken in first, then mixing their ingredients in a bowl and pouring over.  I normally make 4-6 different types of dump chicken, so that would mean a lot more dishes!

Get out one gallon sized freezer bag per batch you plan to match and prelabel it. I do everything like an assembly line, so I will put each ingredient in every bag it goes in, then move on to the next.  It helps to have each recipe written down and near the bags, from my experience.

Once you have all your ingredients in the bag, except the chicken, zip it shut & either shake or squeeze it.  My kids LOVE to help with this stage. Just make sure you sealed the bags completely! Then, add your chicken and lay them flat in the freezer!  These all work great baked, grilled, or thrown in the crockpot!

Have you tried any of these Dump Chicken recipes yet?  What’s your favorite recipe?


  1. How long do you cook these meals in the crock pot and in the oven?

  2. In the oven, bake them for about 35-40 minutes at 350 (boneless, skinless chicken breasts – longer for hindquarters).

    In the crockpot, cook for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high. BLSL chicken breasts take about 6 hours in mine. The time will depend on how large of a crockpot you use and the size of your chicken pieces.

  3. Hi Savanah! Do you put these in the slow cooker frozen, or defrosted? Thanks for your time.

  4. Thank you SO much!  I made the Stickin Chicken and it was SUPER good and very flavorful!  I have three others off this list in the freezer now and they all smell fantastic so far!  Can’t wait to try the rest.

  5. We do them in the crockpot or on the grill from frozen. If I’m going to bake them, I throw the bag into the fridge in the morning to defrost a bit.

  6. Savanah: Thank you,these ALL sound wonderful ! I can’t wait to try these !! I love doing this when we go camping.

  7. I love easy. I am pinning this now!
