Quick question about best way to freeze 1/2 remaining roast chicken breast



Recommended Posts

I feel at my age I should know this but I've never been in the position of having 1/2 a grocery store's roast chicken left over.

I took 1/2 of one breast/white meat and made pureed chicken salad. Am not feeling up to doing more right now - feeling clammy and dizzy but very PROUD that I made something!! And got the very pureed chicken salad into my 2 ounce disposable containers. Have SIX and 1/2 from just one side of the chicken!

BOOM! Mind blown!! Any quick tips on whether I should slice the other part of the breast up, dice it..add broth to it..or anything that needs to be done as a prelude to freezing it? Also, freeze in tupperware or a freezer Ziploc style bag.

Thank you!

Vacuum seal it if you have one otherwise I prefer a freezer ziplock a lot of the containers freezer burn

Ah man, I've come close to getting a vacuum sealer SO many times but haven't. TY for responding. I'll go put it in a bag now.

Anyone know of a great deal on one, let me know..lol. I usually try to buy something on sale but I have no idea what a good price is for a vacuum sealer

I just either pull it into chunks or cube it and freeze it on a plate lined with plastic wrap. Then I shove it into a freezer zip lock, date and label. That way, I can dive into it for a bite or two or an ounce at a time, whatevs. Works great for making compound dishes or for adding Protein to a roasted or sauteed veg. I do this all the time with grilled meat of all kinds, and I also keep boiled shrimp in the freezer. I even do this with grilled salmon! It doesn't stick around long enough to need vacuum sealing. :) It really cuts down on cook time.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
