I buy frozen boneless chicken breasts in bulk and get a lot of uses out of them. I thaw some chicken breasts half way and cut them into nuggets which I fry and store in freezer for later use.
I grind some in my food processor for meals on my menu require ground meat, which saves me money. Ground chicken costs a little more at my market.
I separate the rest of the chicken breasts in dinner portions and store all in the freezer. I'm set for the month.
You could also try this (this is what I often do when fresh chicken is on sale) -- you can cook the chicken breasts by boiling them. Freeze the broth and you won't have to buy cans or cartons of chicken broth for your recipes! Then, shred the chicken meat (I just tear it by hand, after it cools a bit) Then you can freeze it in baggies and it can be used later on in recipes just like the canned chicken.
