  • Spread chicken breasts on the pan in a single layer. Leave space between each chicken breast.

  • Broil until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear when sliced, 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Move chicken to a plate and cover with foil. Let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Cut the chicken as desired. Divide into single servings and add to freezer bags. Spread bags in the freezer in a single layer. Cover with ice packs to speed up freezing.

  • Remove ice packs when chicken is frozen and store in the freezer as desired.

Cook's Note:

If you are starting this recipe with individually frozen raw chicken breasts, thaw them before broiling. To thaw quickly, fill a large pot with hot water and soak the frozen chicken for about 30 minutes.

The recipe is vague, in that it doesn't say how far from broiler to place the chicken and the thickness of the chicken (these both make a big difference). I pounded the breasts to an even thickness, about 1” and placed it about 4”-5” inches from the broiler. Even so, the cook time stated wasn’t long enough. It took 10 minutes total. This is a good way to cook up a bunch of chicken for meal prep. If you are going to be adding it to another recipe, leaving it plain is fine, but for meal preppers such as myself, I’d appreciate some sort of seasoning. Most people don't eat their chicken plain.
