Can I grill a chicken that has been frozen for over a month?


Answer by  HappyArtie (32)

Of course! Frozen chicken will remain fresh for three to six months; the chicken will be safe for up to a year, but it loses freshness after about six months. Just be sure to safely defrost the chicken before grilling. Safe defrost methods include fully thawing the chicken in the fridge, and using the microwave's defrost setting.

No problem there, provided that you froze it pretty soon after buying it and haven't defrosted and refrozen it in the meantime. Make sure the chicken gets cooked through. Enjoy!

Yes you can grill a frozen chicken. It won't be quite as good as fresh but it shouldn't be bad. Just thaw it thoroughly before cooking.

Yes. That is perfectly fine as long as the chicken was wrapped and sealed properly and was not exposed to the freezer directly. Freezer burn on food is not healthy for you to eat.

Yes you can grill a chicken that has been frozen over a month. Bring it to room temperature before grilling. However it is not advisable to store a chicken in freezer for more than 15-20 days as the quality of the chicken reduces.

Frozen chicken will last longer then that in the freezer. But thaw the chicken first and grill. If you grill the frozen chicken it will take a long time to thaw and longer to cook. I have put a frozen chicken in the slow cooker for 8 hrs and make creamed chicken with it.

As long as it was fresh when you put it in the freezer, it should be fine. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.


Answer by  decomom (923)

A chicken that has been frozen and completely defrosted should grill just as well as a fresh chicken that was never frozen.


Answer by  klypos (271)

Yes, if you thaw it properly first. Leave it in the refrigerator to thaw for 24-36 hours before cooking. Do not be tempted to thaw at room temperature - the "bad bugs" like room temperature best.
