  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips

  • 2 1/2 T taco seasoning

  1. Combine all ingredients in a gallon sized ziplock bag, give it a good shake to evenly coat everything.  Seal the bag tightly, making sure to remove any air.  Option to double bag and freeze for up to 7 months!  I suggest putting a date on the bag so you don’t forget.
  2. When you are ready to eat, remove the bag from the freezer and let thaw in the fridge for 24 hours.
