If you make too many chicken breasts and can’t eat them within a couple of days, the next best option is to freeze them. While frozen cooked chicken breasts lose some of their fresh taste and texture, you can use them in other recipes. For the best results, to preserve the taste as much as possible and to protect them from freezer burn, store the cooked chicken breasts wrapped and inside an appropriate container to further protect them during storage.


Things You'll Need

Wrap cooked chicken breasts tightly in plastic wrap.

Place the plastic-wrapped chicken breasts in a single layer in a freezer bag.

Seal the bag closed while pushing down on the bag to press out as much air as possible.

Place the bag in the freezer near the floor or against the back wall, where the freezer is coldest.
