Why not on the recipe site? Well, my cooking is flexible! Recenty I bought boneless, skinless chicken breast in the family pack, must have been 10 in there. took them out of the package and sliced them into finger size, without slicing my finger. Next I put 2 or 3 into freezer bags and added about 1/4 cup of olive oil and froze all but one. First night, I fried them up, added mushrooms, onions, peppers. Delicious. Not much carbs in this meal. Next night I fried up some more chicken and ate it with 2 scrambled eggs. Next was veggie night. Chicken, broc., carrots, onion, mushrooms and any other veggies i the freezer. (Now you know why I do not recipe post this!) I can change the taste by changing the spices. I used garlic one night (no one bothered me at work the next day), other times I use dill (one of my favorites) and other nights, who knows! The point is that eating healthy does not have to be hard or messy. Most of the mess in this is cutting up the chicken. Since the bags reseal, you take out what you need. You can change the meal with whatever you add, sometimes I use cheese for a different flavor. yes, I know some may say, "You are frying in oil." Yes I am and so far from what I read olive oil is actually good for you. Enjoy. Jim

It was already off. I found that if I lay the bag flat in the freezer, they come apart easily, but if you squeeze it in, the olive oil does not help. What I like is I come home from work and I already have the main part picked out and it is so easy to change the meal by changing the extras. I find this to be an easy way to cut carbs.

Do the same frequently myself. Had to get rid of a mess this weekend in fact. Made chicken enchiladas with black beans (with low-carb tortillas), and a mess of chunky chicken salad for quick meals this week.
I know what chicken legs are but I’ve never seen a chicken shin though.

The shin is the front part of the leg, so finding a shinless chicken is not easy. I found the olive added to the bag helps in breaking the pieces off as you need them as opposed to allowing the bag to defrost.

I tend to wrap the portions in plastic wrap or recycled sandwich bags then bag them. Same with burgers
