So our fridge went kaput and while we were waiting for the new one to arrive all the meat in my freezer defrosted. It was kept in a cooler on ice the whole time so I'm not worried about it being safe to eat, but I now need to cook it all before I can freeze it again.

I have about 6 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts and a couple of pounds of spicy italian sausage. The sausage I figure I could just brown and re-freeze, but thought I'd include it in case anyone had a better idea. Right before this happened I made a crock pot full of shredded chicken for mexician type dishes so I don't need any more of that.

you could throw the chicken breast on the grill- either whole or in strips, to have for quick easy meals... or chop it up and cook, if you use lots of recipes that call for bite sized pieces
