Is it safe to eat chicken if it has freezer burn?

My chicken has freezer burn.

Yes you can eat a chicken if it has freezer burn but it will not taste very good. The freezer burn portion probably happened because the chicken was not well wrapped. So remove the burned portion with a knife before cooking it and it may not taste too badly.

Yes, the chicken is safe to eat since freezer burn is simply caused by evaporation. While you can safely eat the chicken, you should realize that freezer burn negatively affects taste and texture. As long as you cook the meat thoroughly and follow sanitary preparation techniques, the chicken should be safe to eat.
