Looking for a new recipe for chicken? Here are some of the FishFam’s favorites!
My sister was the first one to introduce me to Trader Joe’s frozen chicken breasts and chicken tenders. I was skeptical about buying ice-glazed chicken pieces because years ago, I’d found the grocery store variety to be kinda blah. But, I knew that they thaw quickly; since I’m the Queen of Forget to Thaw, I figured I better try them.
Wow! Life changer. My family has enjoyed this chicken so very much! I know it seems silly to get excited over chicken, but seriously, the chicken is super tender and thaws quickly. Also, at $7.49 to $7.99 per 2.5 pound bag, it’s in the affordable range for convenience cuts of meat.
