Well, I started saving the produce bags I get at the grocery store. I only use the bags dry produce has been in (nothing that’s been “misted” all day). Otherwise it will start to get a funky smell.
I usually get 2 or 3 dry bags in a shopping trip, so I have enough when I am ready to buy and put away a big package of chicken. Here’s what I do:
Then I put the individually wrapped chicken breasts into a gallon freezer Ziploc bag. Now they are ready to thaw out, one at a time, in the fridge over night (You might want to put it in a bowl). And voila! My own perfect portions!
I like this idea because it helps me not waste the extra breast if I don’t get a chance to use it. It also gives me another use for all those produce bags that seem pretty clean, but I’ve never had a use for. And I didn’t spend money on “special” little bags, since they come free with produce.
