When I buy "on-sale" chicken breasts to freeze, I add marinade, which could be Italian dressing, leftover wine and seasonings or beer or salsa, to the bag. They will be frozen in. That way they marinate before they freeze and while they are thawing and are ready to cook as soon as I thaw them. I mark the bags with the type of marinade so I don't thaw teriyaki when I want to cook Italian food!
Oh, Linda, what an excellent idea! I love marinated chicken breasts but would never have thought of this. Thanks so much for sharing it.
What a great idea!!!! I'm passing that onto my family and friends. It takes quite a while to marinate chicken and this sure would shorten it.
Thanks for that..we buy the frozen packs of boneless skinless breast (and I personally don't think these are a great deal) I may try this with my favorite salsa for even quicker fajitas!
