10 freezer-to-grill chicken packs in 20 minutes

  • These marinated chicken packs were so easy to make. It took me all of 20 minutes to combine the chicken and marinades in freezer bags and pop them in my freezer. Now all we have to do is thaw them and put them on the grill.

    I already had extra virgin olive oil and seasonings on-hand, so I only spent $32 on ingredients! That includes 10 pounds of chicken, quart-sized freezer bags, and fresh cilantro and lime for one of the marinades.

  • To each freezer bag I added:

One pound boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
One tablespoon dried herbs and seasonings

(I use these baggy holders to keep my bags upright while filling.)

  • I thought about making all of my spice mixes from scratch, but decided to save time with these pre-made spice mixes in my spice cabinet:

    Homemade Taco Seasoning
    Homemade Onion Soup Mix
    Italian Seasoning
    Montreal Steak Seasoning
    Lemon Dill
    Chili
    BBQ
    Spinach and Herb

  • Then, I got a little more creative with these two:

    Honey Garlic Chicken Marinade – 3 cloves minced garlic, 1 tbsp honey, and a pinch of salt and pepper

    Cilantro Lime Chicken Marinade – 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, the zest of one lime (I read that the juice gives the outside of the chicken a tougher texture), and a pinch of salt and pepper

  • (Both were added to their own quart-sized freezer bag with a pound of chicken breasts and 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil.)

  • I think these homemade combos would also be delicious:

    -The zest of one lemon, 1 tablespoon freshly chopped rosemary leaves, and 3 cloves of minced garlic

    -The zest of one lemon and 1/2 teaspoon pepper

    -1.5 teaspoons paprika plus 1.5 teaspoons garlic powder

    -One teaspoon of each: chili powder, paprika, and cinnamon (or cumin)

    -One teaspoon of each: onion powder, garlic powder, and parsley flakes

  • Simply add to a freezer bag with one pound of chicken breasts, 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil, and a pinch of salt.

  • Freezer meals last in a standard fridge/freezer combo for three months so now we’re set for the summer. Serve with a big salad or steamed broccoli with rice and dinner is done.

    My plan is to thaw the chicken freezer packs in the refrigerator overnight or in a pan of water before cooking. Then they only need to be grilled for 6-8 minutes. So easy!

  • If you’ve never prepped and frozen meals raw before, prepare to be amazed. There’s no easier way to make cost-effective and delicious meals.
