This is one of my favorite tricks to help save you time and frustration during dinner! If you are like my family, we eat chicken based meals about 2-4 times a week. Sometimes you don’t have the time to cook chicken, cut it and add it to a recipe. Well…here is a quick and easy solution! When chicken goes on sale for a GREAT price, stock up! Bring the chicken home, trim off any fat that needs cutting off and then throw several pounds of it in a large crock pot or roaster oven. I usually crock pot 10-15 lbs. of chicken at a time. I cook it on medium heat and season the chicken heavily with Montreal Steak Seasoning (my absolute favorite seasoning!) and McCormick Chicken Base (it’s like chicken bouillion but in a spreadable form–you can buy it at Costco for really cheap!). Once the chicken is cooked I let it cool and then divide the chicken into several portions. I put 2-3 chicken breasts in each Ziploc bag and then freeze them until I am needing the chicken for dinner. When you are using the chicken for meals, just defrost or microwave for a minute or so, and then you can easily shred, chop or cut into large chunks for any meal that calls for chicken. Once the chicken is in the recipe you can season it however you desire. Having cooked chicken on hand can cut your meal preparation time in half!
