I don't know if you're like me, but I went through the whole prefrozen/storebought chicken fiasco just like any other newlywed thinking it was cheaper and better than buying a package of fresh chicken.
Well let me tell you, I've learned a thing or to in the past few years and freezing your own fresh chicken is SO much better.
I'll take you through this in some easy steps, highlighting the most important parts.
Yes, this process does take a little time, but you'll be so glad you did it the next time you're in a hurry and need some chicken for dinner.
2. Use chicken breasts in the first week or so after purchasing or you'll need to freeze or toss them out.
3. Tools you need: sharp knife, large cutting board, quart-sized plastic zip-lock freezer bags for each chicken breast and a Sharpie.
4. Write the date on each freezer bag and set aside.
6. Place each chicken breast in ziplock bag and squeeze all of the excess air out. Zip shut.
here are a whole slew of other options on how to thaw chicken.
Hope this will work for you as well as it does for me!
