So much time and money can be saved simply by planning ahead and making the time to keep your freezer stocked with things you would normally buy or make last minute. I need to be more intentional about this so I’ll be sharing my journey with you here on Freezer Friday. I’d love to share your projects too! You can send photos and/or recipes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although we seldom see coupons for meat, you can still practice The Pantry Principleby stocking up when it reaches it’s lowest price.
I like to wait for a low price, buy as much as my budget will allow and then do a little freezer cooking my way. Just recently I was able to buy All Natural Chicken Breast at $1.67 per pound, so I purchased about 20 pounds.
When I first started freezer cooking, I prepared my chicken in the crockpot, however, I wasn’t too fond of the texture that resulted. Now I prepare my chicken for the freezer by baking it in the oven.
How to Cook and Freeze Chicken Breast
Now you you’re prepared for anytime a recipe calls for “cooked chicken”.
Note: You’ll want to freeze some whole, raw chicken breast as well for grilling or recipes that call for raw chicken. The recipe just doesn’t taste the same if you use cooked.
