Marinating Chicken After Slow Cooking... Then Freezing

loveyournoms | Mar 6, 201710:14 AM     11

In an attempt to lower my lunch budget and generally make meal planning easier, I would like to have frozen portions of shredded chicken that has been marinated in various ways. My plan is to get a whole chicken, cut it up, remove as much skin as possible then slow cook it with minimal seasoning so I can shred it. Ideally I'd want to separate it out and use different marinades, then freeze in individual portions. I would hopefully reserve the bones for stock. Does anyone have any experience doing this? I know I need to watch the acidity of the marinades, but any other pointers would be awesome! Thank you!
