I typically have cooked chicken ready to go in the freezer. It's a lifesaver for many meals. And so easy to do - just plan ahead. When I buy a whole chicken, split chicken breast, or any chicken on the bone, I cook in a stock pot with carrots, onions and celery and water. Save the stock after the chicken is cooked to make yummy chicken broth for future dishes (including using it to cook your rice!).
