I have chicken in the freezer that is a year old. Is it usable?

The title pretty much says it all. I've been going through my freezer and realized I have 3 lbs. of chicken thighs that have been in the freezer for a year. Are they usable? If not, do you think they just won't taste as good or do I need to worry about any funny bacteria? I'm pregnant, so not really into taking any chances, but wold hate to waste the food.

Thanks!
