Cheesey Italian Chicken

School is in full swing--does anyone else feel like you don't have enough time in the day to make a great dinner? I have a quick & delicious (& Kid-Friendly!) meal that you can whip up in a snap or even freeze for a night when you need a quick dinner.
The best part? Everything gets mixed right in a Gallon Ziploc Brand Freezer Bag. Easy cleanup and the kids LOVE helping!
Cheesey Italian Chicken
serves 4
1 Gallon Ziploc Brand Freezer Bag
1 1/2 pounds chicken tenderloins (you can substitute any chicken meat)
1 cup Italian salad dressing
8 ounces cream cheese
1 can condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup milk
1 medium orange bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups cooked pasta or rice (whatever you'd like to serve the chicken with)
1 cup chopped tomatoes (optional, for garnish)
Fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)

Gather all your ingredients and place in a Gallon-sized Ziploc Brand Freezer Bag.
Now for the fun! Let the kids mix, mash, and get everything combined. Fortunately, Ziploc bags are tough enough to take the torture from my kids.:)
That's it! You can follow the instructions below to bake or you can attach one of the labels I made (download here, six to a sheet) and pop it in the freezer for another day.
I think this would be SO FUN to do as a play date activity! While the moms make up a few batches of these for freezer meals, the kids can play! Plus, you'll have a dinner ready to bake when you go home!
To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 45-55 minutes until chicken is tender and no longer pink.
Serve over rice or pasta. Garnish with chopped tomatoes and parsley, if desired.
