Can I eat defrosted cooked chicken the next day?

Verified Answer
Once defrosted, you can turn chicken/turkey that was cooked before it was frozen into a new meal, and freeze again to eat another day..

when defrosted, food should be reheated only once, because the more times you cool and reheat food, the higher the risk of food poisoning. cooked food that has been frozen and removed from the freezer should be reheated and eaten within 24 hours of fully defrosting..

Ideally frozen soups should be defrosted overnight in the refrigerator then reheated gently in a saucepan. However it is possible to reheat the soup direct from frozen and this is best done, at least partially, with a microwave.

It's fine as long as it's piping hot and juices run clear. No. Have this problem all the time - never organised enough to take it out the freezer in time to defrost properly. I stick it in the microwave on low (not defrost - takes too long) for about 10 mins until defrosted and then cook it.
