    1. If you read through the recipe you can see we have to divide the coconut aminos. To be more helpful we broke it out to #1 and #2. See the directions above.

  1. Thanks I see that they are divided in the recipe but what are ‘coconut aminos’? Is it coconut oil?

  2. Absolutely wonderful idea. I love Thai, I use my crock pot often and I love the pre-planning aspect. Doing some freezer meals to help with my weekly cook up! So glad I found this site!

  3. I served this over spaghetti squash in order to fake thai noodles, and I loved it! I really missed my thai peanut noodles and this totally matched up to that level of deliciousness!

  4. I live in Europe, what would be a good alternative for the Coconut Amino since we do not have it here (I think)

  5. I hope I don’t sound dumb but I don’t understand the reasoning behind dividing this recipe into 2 bags. Can someone help me understand?

    Many thanks!

    1. Elizabeth, I believe it’s so that the sauce doesn’t get too watered down from the frozen chicken. If you don’t mind a more watery sauce, I’m sure it would be fine to combine into one bag.

  6. Half the number of indicated bags? You mean one or two?
    What’s the difference between bags and ‘indicated number of bags’?
    I just want a crock pot recipe to make and eat some and freeze the rest. This recipe sounds like It was written by an engineer.

    1. The reason it says indicated number of freezing bags is because with a membership, you can customize the number of servings. With several additional servings, extra freezer bags would be required. Our system automatically increases by a freezer bag for every 4 or more servings. So, if you are making 2 meals for 4 people, half would be just one bag. I hope that helps!
