Can these be frozen? And how would you reheat them? I’m am trying to stock my freezer with healthy meals before baby # 3 gets here.

I haven’t tried freezing them. Honestly – they might be mushy or watery after thawing and reheating.

How is the chicken being prepared? It’s not specific in the recipe. Also do you have the nutrition information available for this?

Its actually not whole milk – it is mozzarella cheese – just not the skim milk variety. Really you can use either 🙂
