Pre-Seasoned Frozen Chicken

When I buy chickens, I immediately cut them up and coat them with my family’s favorite seasoning mix. I freeze the individual pieces on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. When the pieces are frozen, I place them in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. On mornings when I know I’ll have a busy day, I take out as many pieces of chicken as needed and thaw them in the fridge. When I get home, it’s a snap to pop them in the oven to bake while I prepare the rest of the meal. —Lise T., Magrath, Alberta
