More tips from Carole’s Kitchen –

I personally use coconut oil when cooking chicken. No oil when I’m cooking steak. A little butter when I’m cooking pork chops.

Individual chicken breast will thaw quickly in cool water. Do not use hot as it will actually start cooking it.

You can preseason meats before you wrap them. Sprinkling pork chops and steaks with garlic powder before freezing will them tender and tasty when you cook them.
