Okay, right now I'm gonna make a big batch of chicken and rice and lentils, fried-baked chicken, and some kefte (sweet meat balls).   but I want to freeze some. do you guys know how long they can safely stay freezed or if they even freeze well at all?

Safely? They can safely stay frozen two days longer than forever.

 

There is a difference between safety (which is a health issue) and quality (which is a taste issue) when dealing with home-frozen foods. All foods will suffer a loss of quality. But there are many factors which affect how this happens, not just the length of time they're in the freezer. Included would be:

 

1. How you cool-down and freezer-prep the food.

2. How it is wrapped.

3. The nature of the freezer (i.e., self-defrosting, zero-degree, etc.)

4. How the food is defrosted.

 

Generally speaking, I would guess the items you mention can be home-frozen for from 2 to 6 months with little to no loss of quality.
