a package of frozen perdue chicken breast from costco

In Costco, I recently bought this package of frozen skinless boneless chicken breasts of Perdue brand.  This is a huge 10 lb package, but the size of the Costco package is not a problem since the chicken breasts are individually frozen, so they are not stuck together.  Just put the bag in your freezer and take out as many chicken breasts at a time as necessary.

A great thing about these Costco chicken breasts is that they are pretty thin and are of uniform size.  This makes these chicken breasts cook quickly and evenly.

Another great thing is that you don’t need to thaw them.  You can cook them from their frozen state – just put the frozen chicken breast on the hot frying pan, cook for about 5 minutes, then flip and cook on the other side for another 5 minutes or so, until the chicken breast is done (no longer pink in center when it’s cut).

I’ve always thawed chicken breasts before, so I was pretty skeptical when I read on the package that you don’t need to defrost them.  However, I tried cooking them from frozen, and it worked great!  Because these chicken breasts are so thin, they cook really quickly, and the results of cooking them from frozen state are no different then cooking them after defrosting first.

The best part is that even though these chicken breasts are frozen, they don’t have any “freezer taste”.  I use these frozen chicken breasts to make chicken salad, chicken stir-fry and other dishes where chopped chicken is added, and it tastes great!

The time savings with the frozen Perdue chicken breast from Costco are significant.  You don’t have to make any extra trips to the store to get the fresh chicken breast, you always have the chicken breast available, plus you don’t need to thaw the chicken.  If you want to make some impromptu chicken salad, all you need is the frozen chicken breast, egg and mayo 🙂  Click here for my very easy chicken salad recipe

    Hi Melanie,
    Great looking recipes over here. Love anything that is individually frozen, really helps when you only need one or two pieces.

    Dear Melanie, I think it is great to be able to have the chicken on hand and not always have to run out to the store. I don’t have a freezer big enough to store very much.
    I think your recipes are very good and your explanations on each item it terrific. I feel as if you are speaking right to me.
    Thank you for your visits to my blog. I am glad that we can be blogging friends. Blessings, Catherine

    Definitely a great tip on the 10lb bag of Perdue Frozen Chicken Breasts. I got the ten pound bag from Costco for pretty much 20 bucks. That comes out to a dirt cheap $2 per pound of chicken. I also like how they split them evenly in 4oz pieces, so you always know how much chicken you are eating and the nutritional facts for it. I cooked it on my propane grill, while still frozen and seasoned them while cooking. They came out really good and as good as any other chicken I have had. The 10lb bag also will last a very long time, depending on how much I cook the chicken.
