      Creamy Lemon Chicken Freezer Recipe

      Oil (enough to brown all the chicken)
      2 chickens, cut up into pieces
      3 tbsp dry sherry or apple juice
      3 tbsp dry white wine or chicken broth
      2 tbsp lemon juice
      grated peel from orange
      1 1/2 cups cream

      On cooking day:
      3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
      1 lemon, sliced thinly

      In skillet, heat oil over medium heat then brown chicken pieces in a single layer, about 8-10 minutes per side. Place all chicken into skillet, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove chicken and place into casserole dish (or into 2 or 3 casserole dishes, per size needed for your family). In skillet, add sherry, wine, orange peel, lemon juice and cream. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then pour over chicken in casserole(s). Cool and freeze.

      On cooking day, thaw overnight in refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350F. Sprinkle casserole with Swiss cheese, top with lemon slices and heat for 30-40 minutes (adjust time accordingly if you divided it into smaller casseroles). Use broiler at end of cooking time if you prefer cheese browned. Serve.
