  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp parsley flakes
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice or the juice of one whole lemon
  • 6 chicken breasts or 8 to 10 chicken tenders


  1. Place all ingredients into a 1-gallon freezer bag. I used wide mouth half gallon mason jar to hold the bag upright while I filled it with the chicken and other ingredients.
  2. After sealing the bag, turn the bag over several times until everything is combined and the chicken is well coated. Freeze flat.
  3. I decided to prepare several of these meals at the same time, so I could store them in my freezer to use later on. Here is my stack of prepared dump chicken dinners all ready for the freezer!

Option 1 ā€“ Bake

  1. Thaw chicken. Pour chicken and marinade into a baking dish, turn chicken to coat. Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes.

Option 2 ā€“ Grill

  1. Thaw and grill in a cast iron skillet on the stove, or outside on the barbecue grill, until no longer pink inside.

Option 3 ā€“ Slow Cooker

  1. Place the frozen chicken in your slow cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours (or high for 4-6 hours.)
