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.

Short term fix, they do sell the ziploc bags that have a little hand held vacuum machine to suck the air out that are pretty cheap. I got one for my husband's sous vide machine while I did research on which food saver machine I wanted. I think Walmart has them but I got mine on Amazon.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
