This is a great recipe for roast chicken that is perfect for freezer meals. It is the perfect recipe to use for freezer cooking. I love this recipe because you can make a bulk amount and prepare four chicken recipes with it for freezer cooking. I also love to cook my whole chickens in my crockpot too! I like to prep it in advance and then freeze it for when I am ready to use it too. It is nice when you find chicken on sale.
