Safely Cooking then Freezing large batches of Chicken and Rice?
As the title says, I want to cook many meals of chicken with brown rice on a Sunday evening and then freeze it so that I have enough meals to get me though the week, this will save me alot of time!
The thing is I'm a complete idiot in the kitchen and I'm likely to do it all wrong and end up making myself ill.
Could somebody please explain in a step by step "idiots guide" sort of way, how I can do this safely?
So many things I'm not sure of!
Have I got it right?
Step 1- cook the chicken and the rice
Step 2- Devide chicken and rice equally between 14 tupaware boxes
Step 3- Allow the meals to cool
Step 4- place meals in the freezer
Step 5- Remove 2 meals a day from freezer and put them in the fridge to defrost, atleast 12 hours before consuming
Step 6-Take defrosted meals to work
Step 7- Reheat meal in the microwave at lunch/break time and eat
seems simple enough, but am I missing anything here?
Does this sound o,k from a food hygeine point of view?
