Reams is having their Truck Load sale this week. Chicken Breasts are featured in the weekly sales ad at $39.60 for a 40 pound case – that's only $0.99/lb! The Reams ad price is valid clear through 3/16. Buying in bulk like this will save you loads of money. It does require some prep when you get that box of chicken home, but the work is worth it.
When I get my 40 lbs of chicken breasts home, I like to freeze about 10 lbs of the breasts for recipes that call for whole chicken breasts like this Lemon Chicken recipe.
I bake or grill another 10 lbs and cube it for use in casseroles like my Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole.
Then I cook another 10 lbs in my Crockpots and shred it in my KitchenAid stand mixer for soups, enchiladas, and my Pecan Chicken Salad.
Freezer tip: When freezing the shredded chicken, add some of the cooking liquid to the chicken. It keeps the chicken extra moist.
The last 10 lbs, I thinly slice up and freeze raw to use in fajitas and Honey Mustard Chicken Wraps
