How to Store and Freeze the Chicken with Gravy
If you have lunch leftovers after serving the chicken to your family, pull it apart into pieces and put the chicken in an airtight food container. You will need to refrigerate the leftover chicken to keep it fresh. Make sure to eat it within four days of putting it in the refrigerator. You can reheat it in the microwave for a quick meal.
You might also want to use some of the leftover chicken in other recipes, such as chicken and swiss casserole, southwestern chicken wraps, and chicken fried rice. If you would like to save your chicken for longer than four days, wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in a freezer bag with a zipper seal. You can freeze the chicken for up to six months before you would need to defrost it and eat it. If you have any leftover gravy, you can freeze it for up to four months with your chicken.
What to Serve With the Chicken
The Slow Cooker Engagement Chicken with White Wine Gravy goes well with many tasty side dishes. It all depends on what you like. The chicken goes well with make-ahead stuffing and fresh vegetables, such as roasted broccoli, cauliflower Gratin with Bacon, and steamed carrots. Other side options you can serve with this chicken are homemade mashed potatoes, baked macaroni and cheese, or even brown rice. If you prepare mashed potatoes or white rice, you can even add some of the gravy on top.
