This is a tasty dish that tastes so fresh even after being frozen! If you wish to freeze, make the marinade and add raw chicken. Freeze in freezer bag. Completely thaw when you are ready to make this wonderful dish!

If making for a freezer meal, would you recommend freezing the marinade separate from the chicken or mixing them together?
