Can chicken that been frozen and defrosted be defrosted and cooked?

If you are asking "Can chicken that has been frozen be defrosted and cooked?" then the answer is yes. If you are asking if chicken that has been frozen, defrosted, refrozen and defrosted again can be cooked than the answer is yes but it's not safe. When you freeze food water crystals expand and damage cells. When you defrost your food, particularly if you leave it on the counter instead of in the fridge bacteria causing microorganisms have the chance to multiple. When you then refreeze it even larger ice crystals are formed destroying even more cell membranes. After this you defrost it again and the microorganisms from before can double. Usually at this point the meat doesn't look or smell so great.
