Yup, we’re freezing 2 baggies together on this one. You can “nest” them together, or you can label and tape them together. We recommend this because we need to cook the chicken and the sauce first, and then the veggies (and egg) and then we toss it all together with some cooked egg noodles. The end result - a perfect bowl of Chicken Pad Thai. Enjoy!
