To keep food on hand for my sick family member I was thinking of taking cooked bone-in chicken pieces and freezing them in small batches so they could be reheated as needed. Does anyone do this and if so is there any trick to keeping things tasty and avoiding freezer burn?

I always use 3 sheets of plastic wraps,indivually wrapping 3 times and then put in a freezer bag squeezing out the air, will prevent freezer burn and keep fresher longer, make each wrapping tight.

If you can afford a vacuum sealer (typically around $150 -- the cheaper versions use thin plastic that you (a) cannot reuse and (b) can break down while boiling) then you can do this quite easy. Then you drop the kit into boiling water to reheat.
