Tip

Make it your own! Add your own blend of spices, or throw in some sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes or some red peppers. These can be customized for your own taste.

Step 1: Divide the Ingredients

Lay out 4 long sheets of foil (each about 20 inches long). Divide the asparagus between the sheets, placing in the center of each. Top with chicken cubes and shallot slices. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.

Step 2: Seal and Freeze

Wrap the packets, tightly folding around the ingredients. Add more foil if necessary to insure a tightly closed package to keep freezer burn out and the juices in once baked. Place packets in a gallon-sized zip-top freezer bag, and lay flat in the freezer. Freeze for up to one month.
