Hunk of Meat Monday: Marinading Chicken

Instead of a cooked hunk of meat - this week I am going to share how we prepare a hunk of meat. 

Since there are two of us and I buy chicken in "bulk" (I don't really consider this a large amount of meat but the store does) since it is a better price that way.  And, chicken goes bad when it is just left in the fridge until you want to use it - oh, you knew that? Uh, me too - lol.  Anyway, on to the prep work. 

All you need is chicken (we use boneless skinless chicken breast) and . . .

marinade and freeze bags.  This is my favorite marinade - Lawry's Herb and Garlic.  It is the best!! 

I put one breast in each package - I used to put two since there are two of us, but the breast keep getting bigger and bigger and we only eat half of one, so I started puttting one.

Put the marinade in - just enough to cover.

Make sure the marinade covers the entire breast - lay flat and freeze.

Then, whenever you want chicken all you have to do is defrost and you have marinaded chicken ready to be cooked.

Love the Lawry's marinades too. They were just $1 a piece at Krogers, so I stocked up! Thanks for linking up to Hunk of Meat Monday.
