Freezer Cooking: Lemon Chicken

This is one of my favorites.  Not because of the taste, although it is good.  It’s my favorite because we like to grill it and hubby does the grilling. i.e. less cooking for me. 😉

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite herbs (I use parsley and oregano)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Garlic powder or minced fresh garlic
  • Lemon juice
  • Chicken breasts (prepped)

I don’t measure for this.  Decide how many pieces you want for each meal and select the appropriate size freezer bag or container.  I put 3 or 4 pieces in quart bags.  Pour a generous amount of herbs and seasonings in each bag.  Add in enough juice to slosh the seasonings around.  Then add the chicken.  Press the air out and seal the bag.  Mush the chicken around to coat it.  Add more juice if you need to better distribute the herbs.  Lay flat and freeze.  You can stack them  sideways once they freeze.

For the bag: “Lemon Chicken: Set out to thaw in AM.  Bake in oven at 450 F for 35-45 min. or cook on grill.  Serve over rice.”

If you bake in it the oven be sure the pour the juice in to the dish with it.  If you grill it you can baste it with the juice.  We don’t and it still tastes delicious.
