Whether your cooking in batches or have leftovers, any chicken that is not going to be eaten immediately can be packed away in the freezer, ready for a later meal.
Whether it be chicken breast, thigh or a whole chicken, the best way to freeze is to shred the chicken into pieces.
Shedreding the chicken instead of leaving it in whole pieces will allow it the thaw more quickly. Freeze the chicken in one cup portions and label the package with the date and any spices or flavours that the chicken was cooked in.
These single servings are perfect for weeknight meals. You can throw the frozen chicken straight into a quick soup, pasta, and even a stir-fry.
Also if your cooking a frittata or salad it’s best to thaw the chicken first.
