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.

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 met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
