Glad all was well. I've had chicken before, in date but slight smell of vinegar, all was ok but I wouldn't recommend it. shock

Bloody hell that's 4 days after getting out the freezer, eek!

No, you must never re freeze without cooking first.

Cook within 24 hrs of de frosting.

Bin it!

Thanks. I did it. Could find answers from 1 to 5 days online. It was nicely brown.
Smelled and tasted ok, still alive and stomach feels fine so far grin

I thought is was 24 hours after defrosting. Does it smell ok? Cook it into oblivion if you're going to risk it. I don't think I'd do much after 24hrs though once originally defrosted.

Chicken put in fridge to defrost on Thursday night.
In original packaging, opened as I took out the rest of the chicken to cook but didn't need whole pack. Immediately put in freezer bag and in freezer.
Fridge is on the cold side.
Can I cook it now? Or will I die/ wish I would die?
