Regarding this, does pulled chicken freeze well?

Freezing Shredded Chicken Once your shredded chicken is completely cooled, you can put it in ziplock bags or airtight containers in 1 or 2 cup portions (depending on how much you think you'll use at a time), and store in the freezer. If it's stored properly, the chicken will maintain good quality for about 4 months.

One may also ask, can you cook chicken and then freeze it? According to the FSA, it's totally safe to freeze food up until the use-by date. This includes meats and meals cooked from previously cooked and frozen meat (i.e. your roast chicken leftovers). Once the food is defrosted, the pause button is "off". So you will need to eat the food within 24 hours.

Just so, how do you reheat frozen shredded chicken?

If the shredded chicken is frozen you should first defrost it or allow it to thaw overnight in the fridge. Place chicken in an oven-safe dish and cover with aluminum foil. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees and the chicken is thoroughly warmed.

How do you store chicken in the freezer?

Place chicken breasts in freezer bags and manually push out as much air as possible before zipping them closed. If you want to leave the chicken in the package it came in, the USDA advises that you wrap the container in aluminum foil, plastic wrap, or freezer paper.
