    Default Can you eat thawed refrozen chicken?

    I thawed 2 chicken breasts and they sat in the fridge for 2 days. Then I decided we wouldnt be eating chicken for a few days bc we had stuff to do so I refroze it. Can we still eat it?

    I always heard no...once you freeze, defrost, then you have to use it or chuck it. It could be an old wives tale passed down though!!

    I'm pretty sure we've done it and nothing bad happened. But I don't know what the rule is. Did you try Googling it? Google knows everything.
    Why do people kill people who kill people to show people that to kill people - is bad?

    Yes, the only thing that is going to suffer is the texture, especially since you defrosted it in the fridge. And even then, eh, it's just chicken breasts, not like it's filet or something.

    Thanks ladies! I am making chicken caesar salad but I guess the texture doesnt really matter too much.

    Yep. A lot of "fresh" meat you buy in the supermarket gets partially frozen in the delivery truck if it's packaged outside the store(Foster Farms, etc.).

    I'm glad you asked this question!...I always thought the answer was no, but after reading the replies, and a quick internet search (you're right,imagirliegirl, Google knows everything ), I discovered as long as the thawing occurs in the fridge (versus on the counter), refreezing is possible. Wonder how much meat I've wasted over the years b/c I didn't get around to cooking it after thawing it...

    My husband is a butcher, and he says he wouldn't recommend it. I wouldn't eat it, but then again, I am just a bit paranoid of all food related illnesses.
