Place into resealable plastic freezer bag or container; freeze up to 3 months. Thaw chicken in refrigerator at least 24 hours. Unwrap chicken, place into greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Brush with butter mixture, sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake as directed. Prepare relish while chicken is baking.
