Meal Prep and Freezer Tips

After the shredded buffalo chicken is cooked and cooled, it can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. I prefer to use glass food storage containers.
Cooked buffalo chicken can also be frozen. You can freeze into recipe ready portions using labeled freezer storage bags or freeze into blocks using Souper Cubes.
