The recipe/food that I always have alongside the shredded chicken in the freezer is spaghetti sauce. It’s so easy to brown 2-3 extra lbs. of ground beef in a large saucepan and mix up a triple batch of sauce. Just be sure to let it cool completely before adding to the freezer bag or container.
If freezing in a baggie, remove as much air as you can from the bag and freeze flat on a baking sheet. If freezing in a container, be sure to leave 1/4″ of headspace as it will expand slightly when it freezes.
Do you double/triple batch and keep spaghetti sauce in your freezer?
