refreezing uncooked chicken

masshlx | Mar 27, 2011 06:09 AM

Hi. I bought a large package of chicken at the store 2 days ago, expecting to cook a big meal with it today. I wasn't expecting the flu to hit the house over the weekend, with the result that nobody has an appetite. I know this product comes into the store frozen, it was semi frozen when I bought it and continued to defrost in my fridge. I've seen mention that the USDA says it's ok to refreeze, but some have said that the quality of the chicken isn't as good after refreezing but still is ok to use.

Long question short, has anybody done this and what were your results?

Thanks,
Patrick
