I can't remember the answer to this! Is it ok to defrost a portion of meat/fish, make it into a meal for a baby, then freeze the meal in portions? What I mean is, is it ok that the meat/fish has then been frozen twice? I know the resulting meal must be thoroughly heated through before eating. Only I have a pack of chicken thighs, & not sure I'm ready to use them all now, so it would be handy if I could freeze to use later.

Many thanks.

You can defrost, cook, then refreeze safely.

if the meat was raw when frozen then you can defrost it, cook it and then refreeze the cooked product. You can freeze once in a raw state and then once in the cooked state. Defrost and reheat to piping hot when serving the cooked meal again.

Thanks all, I had a feeling it was ok, but wanted to be sure!
