Stocking Your Freezer: Teriyaki Chicken

As I said in an earlier post, the purpose of this blog is to help you plan ahead so you never have to ask yourself "What's for dinner?"  Or ask your spouse/significant other, "What do you want for dinner?"  Something I learned awhile back from a friend is that if you freeze your meat in a marinade, the flavor is more powerful and saturated because it marinades as it defrosts.  I've been using this tip for years now and it is amazing!  So, next time chicken is on sale, buy a few extra pounds and try this recipe.

Teriyaki Chicken
-2 lbs chicken breasts
-8 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
-8 tablespoons chopped scallion
-16 teaspoons lemon juice
-4 teaspoons minced garlic

-Place chicken breasts in a freezer bag.
-Add teriyaki sauce, scallions, lemon juice and minced garlic.
-Seal, mix and place in the freezer.
-When ready to use, just defrost and either bake in the over at 350 for 1 hour or saute in a skillet.

Serving Suggestions
-Serve with white or brown rice.
-Stir fry up some veggies (like carrots, snow peas, red pepper and broccoli) or just plain old steamed broccoli.
