Purchase the pieces of chicken that you eat and buy a lot. To store drumsticks, thighs, or breast you will need a roasting pan or a large aluminum pan 2-4 inches deep.   Remove plastic wrapping and discard,

Place each piece at least 2 inches apart, filling the pan completely. The pan should be placed on the bottom of the freezer floor, assuring that the pieces do not touch. 45 minutes is enough time for the chicken to harden.

Remove and place the pieces into a freezer storage bag. Chicken should immediately go into the freezer. Now you can thaw only what's needed, thawing is quicker and easier..
