I am new to doing frozen meals. I am due this month and will have basically no help so decided to gave frozen meals a try. I have research about dealing with chicken and from what I learn it seems like the chicken should be frozen first then defrosted cooked and frozen again.
So that leaves me to think I should eighter to it two ways
1. Buy the fresh chicken, season it, freeze it, when I am ready defrost it and cook or
2. Buy the fresh chicken, season it, cook and freeze, defrost, heat up
Is this ok. I think I also heard the cook one can last 3 months but the uncook 6 months. I just have freezer ontop of the fridge (live in an apt.). Would that make my frozen foods last less time than the 3 months?
