Thai chicken tenders freeze well, and they can have the same good flavor for about 1-2 months in the freezer. Use our meal prep containers when storing away leftovers or meals. You can also use heavy-duty freezer bags, just make sure they’re labeled before storage. Don’t freeze the almond dipping sauce because when thawed, it becomes watery, runny, and bland.You’ll have to make a fresh batch. 

After thawing and using meal portions, you can leave extras in the refrigerator for another three days. However, it would be best if you consumed chicken thawed at room temperature immediately.
