  • Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (how ever many you want to freeze, we do one per person)
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Melted butter or beaten egg (for dipping)
  • Saran Wrap


  1. In a bowl, combine bread crumbs and cheddar cheese.

  2. Take a raw breast, dip in the butter or egg mixture, then into the bread crumb/cheese mixture. Make sure the whole breast is coated with crumbs.

  3. Lay the coated chicken breast on a piece of saran wrap and wrap it up tight. Place breaded, wrapped, chicken breast in a labeled Ziploc bag. Continue until all the breasts are done. (You may need to add more bread crumbs and cheese to the bowl if you have several breast to do.

  4. To reheat:

  5. Unwrap desired number of bread chicken breasts and place on a baking sheet. Put baking sheet in the fridge and allow the breasts to thaw.

  6. When completely thawed, bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes until brown (internal temp should read 170 degrees).

  7. (If you plan on baking them straight from the freezer (not thawed), up the baking time to 35-40 minutes).
