Frozen Assets


Marinated Lime Chicken

Here’s one of my family’s all-time favorite chicken recipes. The instructions include directions for preparing ahead of time for the freezer. So if you find chicken on sale at a good stock-up price, you can take advantage of the sale prices and have this delicious meal waiting in the freezer for a busy evening later in the month. If you want to bake without freezing first, be sure to allow at least an hour or two to marinade in the refrigerator.  

MARINATED LIME CHICKEN (from Frozen Assets Lite & Easy)

6 servings

  • 6 chicken breast portions (about 8 ounces each)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 4 limes (or 4 tablespoons bottled lime juice)

  • 4 teaspoons white wine vinegar

  • 9 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons basil

Preparation: Squeeze limes into a medium sized bowl. Stir in vinegar, olive oil, basil, salt and pepper. Place chicken breast portions into labeled freezer bags. Pour lime sauce over top; seal and freeze.

To Serve: Thaw completely. Pour marinade into small saucepan. Heat to boiling. Place chicken pieces into shallow oven-proof dish. Pour boiled marinade over chicken. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 – 40 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked through. Serve hot, sprinkled with fresh basil sprigs if available.

I hope your family likes this recipe as much as my family does!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

This looks good :)I love the idea of freezing a meal to cook later! But I don’t have any limes. Do you think lemons would taste as well?

Hi, Stacy … I don’t think it would be the same with lemons but on the other hand, Lemon Chicken is usually delicious so maybe it would be wonderful in its own way? If you try it, let us know how it turns out! 🙂
