Quick Tip: Freeze Leftover Cooked Chicken
Whether we’re grilling chicken breasts or braising legs and thighs, we find it just as easy to cook a large batch all at once. (Or just cook a whole chicken!) Any leftovers not immediately eaten get shredded and packed away in the freezer to await reincarnation as a later meal…
We like to shred the chicken instead of leaving it in whole pieces because the smaller pieces thaw more quickly. We freeze the shredded chicken in one cup portions and label the package with any spices or flavorings used during cooking.
Give it a try next time you have some leftover chicken meat!
