If you want to freeze them, we suggest doing so without the hoagie rolls. Freeze the chicken mixture in a freezer safe bag or container. When you are ready to eat, let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then reheat in the microwave or on the stove. Toast the hoagie rolls before assembling the sandwich.
