I'm a single guy, living alone, and I love to cook. I prefer not to cook in big batches because I like to try different things day to day. Cooking 4 pieces of chicken the same way and eating them all week doesn't appeal to me. The supermarkets near me don't sell small portions, so I have to buy larger packages. I don't wanna freeze it, so it will be ready anytime I get hungry or in the mood for chicken. The thing is sometimes I'll decide I want pork fish or beef on the way home from work, and the chicken ends up sitting. Frequently the last two pieces spoil before I use them.
If I were to put some of the chicken a container with either a marinade or a brine, will that help it last longer? One time put chicken in buttermilk, and forgot about it for a week; by the time I pulled it out, it looked fine and I made fried chicken with it. Came out fantastic. What does everyone think?
