Frozen chicken may be safer as compared to the fresh chicken. Frozen chicken is also safe to handle than the fresh one. This is because the liquid dripping from fresh chicken is often contaminated with campylobacter. While frozen storage may help reduce the risk of food poisoning, it is by no means a reliable control measure.
The main difference between fresh and frozen chicken is their storage life. Fresh chicken should be kept in the refrigerator for not more than two days before it is consumed, while frozen chicken can last for many months in your freezer, if preserved well.
A healthy substitute for red meat, chicken takes well to a number of cooking methods and is readily available. Frozen chicken is often cheaper than fresh chicken and has the added benefit of having longer storage times than fresh chicken. You can also freeze extra fresh chicken.
Commercially, frozen chicken is often blast chilled or flash frozen to preserve nutrition, texture and freshness as much as possible. A quick freezing process prevents the fluid inside the chicken from turning into large crystals, which can cause faster deterioration in texture and nutrition. In some cases, commercially frozen chicken is injected with a saline solution, which means it has a high salt content.
Flash-frozen chicken has a nutritional profile similar to fresh chicken, as the process does not use any preservatives, although blast-chilled chicken may have more additives. A 3-ounce serving of raw, skinless fresh chicken has 101 calories per serving, with a little over 18 grams of protein and only 2.6 grams of total fat. Chicken is also a source of iron, potassium, vitamins K and A, and B vitamins, particularly niacin.
In addition to buying pre-frozen chicken, you can also freeze the fresh chicken. It can last up to one year in a freezer, when stored at zero degrees Fahrenheit or lower. To freeze chicken at home, take out a portion of the chicken into the serving sizes as required, and then wrap it in a butcher wrap or place the servings in freezer bags. Remove as much air as possible to reduce the freezer burns and also minimize the space occupied in the freezer. Do not freeze stuffed chicken, as long duration freezing and thawing times may encourage dangerous food borne bacteria.
To cook frozen chicken, you first have to safely defrost it. The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service had recommended three methods of defrosting chicken: in the fridge, in the microwave or submerged in cold water. If the chicken is stored in airtight packaging, you can soak the chicken in cold water, changing the liquid every half an hour. To defrost in the fridge, place the wrapped chicken on a plate and let it slowly defrost. In the case of microwave and cold-water defrosting, chicken needs to be cooked immediately, while chicken defrosted in the fridge can stay there for an extra day or two.
To defrost the frozen chicken, place the packaged chicken in the bottom compartment of the fridge, in a bowl large enough to collect juices that may drip. Due care must be taken to avoid contact of these raw meat juices with the other food items or fridge surfaces, as this may contaminate them. Please do not remove the packaging during the defrost process. The thawed chicken can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days before cooking. Although slow, this is the safest method.
This quick-thaw method is usually preferred and takes 15 to 30 minutes. Fill a large bowl with cold water (resist the temptation to use hot water). Place the package in the water, fully submerging it. Let it remain submerged, change the water with fresh cold water as it warms. Once the pieces are defrosted enough to be separated, pull them apart. Continue until the chicken meat is fully thawed.
