Chicken Tenders

5. Chicken Tenders

Why chicken tenders? They’re much smaller than conventional chicken breasts so they thaw out quickly. Plus, since they’re so small, they’re easy to cut up and add to a soup or stir-fry without having to commit to thawing and cooking a whole breast. Buy tenders at the store and repackage them in quart-size ziplock bags for convenience. Just transfer them to your fridge to defrost the night before you’re ready to use them.
