I like to wait for the boneless, skinless all natural chicken breast to go on sale & then stock up on it. I either cook the chicken and separate it all into 1.5 Lb. quantity freezer bags or separate it raw and put it into the freezer that way. When I only need a small amount of chicken I can just grab one of the bags out of the freezer!
I agree. Now that our family has downsized, I separate chicken, ground beef patties, ground beef, pork chops, etc... into small bags or packages with freezer wrap/tape. ~~Vicki
Really wanted to stock the freezer this Sunday, but budget prevented too much stocking. Krogers had bone-in Chicken Breasts for 79c/lb - bought 3 packs of 2 (they were large ones too), but would have bought more, but this was a tight week. We have had some family special events that have eaten away at the normal budget.
Saw someone who put the chicken breast in the freezer bag with the marinate - then froze it. When they pulled it out it was ready to go. Wondered if being in the marinate might disintegrate the meat?
I agree.There's nothing more convenient than boneless skinless chicken. But I have never marinated it proorto freezing.....bet that's good.
"Practice random acts of kindness"
I have a really good marinade w/1/4 cup each lemon juice, soy sauce,pineapple juice, olive oil & pkg. of dry onion soup mix. However, if you leave the meat or veggies in it over an hour...it works too well.
I do this with chicken, beef and pork. I have never had it disinegrate the meat--It is so convient. I "plop" the chicken into the bags lined up on the counter (bags are marked with a sharpie as to it's contents) add the marinade ingredients, seal and freeze immediately. When I know that I am going to use that particular meal. I take out of freezer the night before and place in my thawing box in the refrigerator--(or I do first thing in the morning)--I use it that night and it's like it has marinated for only the amount of time it was in the refrigerator for. Usually 6-8 hours. Works wonderful and is a great time saver!
