Need a really good recipe for Asian Chicken but don’t want a crazy list of ingredients you don’t have on hand? Here’s Sticky Asian Grilled Chicken Breasts!
In fact, not only is this recipe awesome, but this sticky Asian grilled chicken breasts recipe is a freezer meal too! #WINNING!!!
Cade and I don’t do a lot of freezer meals. For one thing, we are food bloggers and are always making a new recipe so we don’t need food in the freezer. In fact, we use our food saver ALL THE TIME for meals we need to freeze after we made it.
Just a little plug here, if you haven’t bought a Food Saver yet, it’s time. No, really. It’s the best investment ever. We freeze everything and it’s so fresh when we reheat. Even soups and meats which usually aren’t great after cooking and freezing and then finally reheating.
What is a Food Saver?
Air is the enemy of freshness and primary cause of freezer burn and dehydration in foods stored in the freezer, refrigerator and pantry.
Ordinary storage methods trap air inside, causing food to lose flavor and nutrition over time.
FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing Systems combat the enemy with an air-tight seal.
Second, and I already mentioned this above now, but we don’t love a lot of reheated freezer meals. They just don’t taste as good. This sticky Asian grilled chicken thighs recipe packs a ton of flavor that only gets better in the freezer so let’s get into it!
Just press play and you can watch how to make this recipe and pass it along to your friends for freezer meals parties!

We love our Asian Sticky Slow Cooker Ribs recipe so much we needed a chicken version. You make the sauce and let it cool then save half in the fridge for up to 1 month and the other marinates the chicken in the freezer. When you’re ready to cook, just defrost the chicken in the fridge (you should never defrost chicken on the counter) and then let it sit out for five minutes before grilling.
If you’re done with being outside and at the grill just bake the chicken in a dish at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Or you can cook in a skillet on the stove for 5 minutes per side at medium high heat that is turned to medium low just after adding the chicken. Read our How to Cook Chicken in a Pan for more information on the best way to cook on a stove top without under or over cooking and the secret to not having to cut through the chicken to see if it’s done. It’s so awesome!
We made you a full recipe video and hope it helps it all come together. Press play and tell us what you think!
Side note- we have a grill pan but I’m going to be buying this cast iron reversible grill pan so that I can use the griddle side for pancakes.

We like ours over rice with freshly steamed or sautéed veggies. Serve with remaining sauce. To make this dish into a freezer meal, prepare as normal but use a food saver to remove the air or carefully press the air out of a ziploc. The chicken can remain frozen for up to 2 months. Remember to defrost in the fridge and discard any remaining sauce from the uncooked chicken bag.
