Although I didn't do the freezing thing, I did use 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts & then pretty much followed the recipe, although I also substituted lemon pepper for the pepper & most of the salt! Thoroughly enjoyed the thyme, garlic & lemon flavor combo here & will be keeping your recipe around! Thanks for sharing it!
