Make the Most of Your Chicken
Depending on the size, one chicken will yield 3 to 4 cups of chopped, cooked meat. Remove the meat from the bones when it’s still warm, and freeze up to one month in a zip-top plastic freezer bag. If you have extra pan juices, drizzle them over the meat for additional moistness. To preserve the fresh flavor and texture, allow 24 hours for the chicken to thaw in the refrigerator before using.
