I buy a lot of animal foods in bulk because the kind of stuff I prefer (organic, grass-fed, free-range, etc) isn't always available at my local market. This means I have a freezer full of frozen beef, chicken, etc at all times. My fridge doesn't always thaw stuff out in time, or sometimes I forget to pull stuff from the freezer far enough in advance.
I previously shared this slow cooker recipe
that uses frozen boneless chicken, and it works so well and is so great when I'm in a pinch and don't have anything thawed out, so I'm wondering if there may be other recipes or methods that would work with other meats or other chicken parts. If the recipe requires me to do something to the meat or chicken before it is frozen (such as cut it in a particular way), that's fine. I am not super experienced with meat cookery, but I'm totally willing and able to make more complicated dishes -- anything, basic or complex, will be great as long as I can take the meat right out of the freezer and not have to thaw it out.
Thanks so much! :)
