so, i accidentally didn't make enough dinner for dp, but i have a frozen chicken breast in the freezer.can i cook it from frozen???am a veggie myself so very rarely cook meat and don'twant to poison him!if i can cook it... how?
If you thinly slice it, it'll defrost really quickly, then you can do him a stir fry???
hmmm that might just work, I have enough rice for him so could chuck that in too.he won't be in for an hour or so, so i have a bit of time to play
No! Don't cook it from frozen!Do you have a microwave to defrost it in?
Stick it in cold water for about 50 minutes, will defrost most of it and then defrost in the microwave.
yeahm i have a microwave. how long should i do it for?
I wouldn't microwave it, would put it in cold water and then chop it up fine and stirfry.There's no health problem cooking from frozen in any case, it's just a texture issue really.
There is a health problem cooking chicken from frozen - it's to do with killing off salmonella and camphilobacter in particular.The risk is that the chicken isn't heated to a high enough temperature to kill off these bacteria.
well, i've microwaved it, it seems to be thawed all the way through, have now stuck it in the oven with a tin of tomatoes, some garlic and other crap and will cook it for a long, long time.hopefully it'll be ok
