Freezing chicken curry / stews

rapscalli | Dec 22, 201604:33 AM     2

Hi all,

Cooked a few chicken dishes (chicken curries and chicken chasseur) and froze them. The chicken breast was in large pieces (approx 1/4 of a breast). When defrosted and warmed the chicken had a very poor texture.

How can i cook and freeze chicken stews and curries to keep the texture?

PS, i need to use chicken breast for some dishes as i have fussy eaters that won't eat the brown meat...
