Freezable Grab & Go Lunches {Beef & Chicken}

Having a few freezable grab and go lunches ready is a life saver for busy weeks I don’t have the time to meal prep. Here are my favorite 3 instant pot freezable grab & go lunches! 


My plan was to make my lunch in my instant pot on my day off, but when I made my chicken and it was so quick and easy, I figured I would put a second recipe in the instant pot while I ate my lunch.

Then, that snowballed into using up some beef and bam! my freezer was stocked with freezable grab and go lunches..

The best part of prepping these grab and go lunches was the lack of dishes! I really only used a couple of cutting boards, measuring tools, and the instant pot. In between recipes, I just washed the instant pot– no piles of pots and pans, and millions of dishes. Win-Win.

To make freezer ready single servings for lunches, I like to use these 2 compartment and 3 compartment Prep Naturals containers.

As for labeling, I found this handy dandy freezer tape! Note: masking tape will not stick once frozen. Actually NOTHING will stick except this magical tape.

I used three recipes for this freezer cooking adventure. I also steamed carrots and broccoli, and prepped some rice to make these full meals!

Now my favorite freezable grab & Go lunches….

  1. When my food doesn’t reach the top of the freezer container I place a layer of plastic wrap directly on the food prior to closing the lid.

  2. Since I don’t use microwaves I use my lunch crock to heat things like this up. I usually dump it in at night and throw the meal into a thermos to take to work the next day. Just throwing this out there for those that aren’t fans of microwaves or don’t have access to one at work.

  3. I don’t have an instant pot but there are tons of good recipes on here. Do you know a way to convert time for a crock pot?

    1. I haven’t used my slow cooker in years so I may not be the best resource for this. But, what I would do is just take which ever recipe you like and then search for a slow cooker version on google or pinterest. Sorry!
