This freezer-friendly chicken traybake is a delicious and easy meal to make any time. I prepare this recipe when I do not have time to think and when I need something quick that does not require a lot of supervision. Even better, I know I can make this and save it for a later time too!
Make This Freezer-Friendly Chicken Traybake In Minutes!
To prepare this traybake, you will need 16 chicken pieces, baby potatoes, lemons, green olives, onions, garlic, cumin, coriander, chicken stock, and olive oil.
If need be, you can switch some of the ingredients out. Try going with pork, turkey, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, lime, black olives, leeks, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, vegetable stock, and vegetable oil.
Start everything by preheating your oven to 365 degrees F. Put all the ingredients on a baking sheet, or two if need be. Make sure to season with salt and pepper as well. Cover your food with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden.
I recommend you remove the tin foil after this time and cook for about half an hour more, but this time can vary. If you are cooking your chicken from frozen, the time will probably be longer. Always remember to use a food thermometer to check your chicken is cooked through.
Freezing and Unfreezing the Chicken Traybake
When you need to save this meal for later, allow it to cool completely and portion into freezer bags. Lay your bags flat until they turn solid, then you can store them however you like.
Be sure to place your frozen traybake in the fridge overnight when you want to cook it. Empty it onto the baking sheet, cover it with tin foil, and bake for about 45 minutes to one hour.
Finally top with some fresh oregano and serve your delicious chicken traybake with a glass of red wine.
