This recipe from “Fix, Freeze, Feast” makes three entrees, four servings of each.
1 tray (about 7 pounds or 16 pieces) of chicken thighs on the bone, skin removed
1 cup soy sauce
¼ cup of red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 teaspoons minced garlic (about 9 cloves)
3 teaspoons minced ginger
3 1-gallon freezer bags, dated and labeled
Rinse and divide chicken evenly among freezer bags. Combine — stirring until sugar is dissolved — soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and oil in small bowl. Divide marinade evenly over chicken. Into each bag, measure 1 teaspoon garlic and 1 teaspoon ginger. Put bags in freezer.
To cook 1 entree: Thaw entree in refrigerator. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place meat and marinade in ungreased baking dish. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of meat reads 180 degrees. Turn pieces twice during baking. The longer the cooking time, the thicker and stickier sauce will be.
