It’s no secret that we LOVE quick & easy freezer meals around here, especially ones that use budget-friendly chicken! Believe it or not, this tender, juicy, flavor-packed  Portobello Chicken might just be our easiest recipe yet. It’s got just 5 easy ingredients (not counting salt & pepper), but tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen. It’s even fancy enough to serve to guests.

To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the soup mixture & chicken into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required! Making it ahead of time is not necessary, though, as it is equally delicious just marinated in the refrigerator.

You can use any type of chicken but my family much prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs, which are a darker, juicier meat and also tend to be cheaper than the boneless skinless breasts.
