How Is the Best Way to Cook Partially Frozen Chicken?

Question by Ellie: How is the best way to cook partially frozen chicken?
I am wanting to make this:

I put my frozen chicken breasts in the refrigerator before I went to work to thaw but they were still frozen when I got them out… I’ve been running cold water on the packaged chicken for over an hour and the middle is still frozen …

Since I am cutting the chicken into strips can I just cook it partially frozen? what would you suggest?

Yes you can cook it partially frozen. It will take a bit longer to cook but it is okay.

Answer by Kimberly

2 -6 frozen chicken breasts, 1 per person
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce or 1 1/2 cups pasta sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup carrots (any veggies) or 1/2 cup potato (any veggies)
2 -6 slices cheese, 1 per chicken breast

Preheat oven to 375.
Spray baking dish with non-stick spray.
Place frozen chicken breast in dish.
Top with sauce.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Options: Add veggies for a one dish meal.
If using cheese, put it on the last 2 minutes of cook time. This.
gives it time to melt and brown if you like it that way.

Thank you……..

The chicken will defrost in half the time if you remove it from the package and put it in a bowl of room temp water. When defrosted, pat dry with paper towels. And since you are cutting into strips its easier to cut when partially frozen.

Sorry, I could not find your recipe from this address. However, rule of thumb is that you need to cook food evenly and so you do need to get those chicken breasts defrosted. Use your thaw setting on the microwave and that should do it in a few minutes. Hope this helps.
