Yes. It is safe to recook chicken after it has been frozen. We did this a lot for soups and other dishes that needed chicken. Reusing cooked meats is a way to help your budget stretch.

Poultry, turkey or chicken, is cooked 20 min. per pound. Multiply the number of pounds by 20 min. It is best to only cook defrosted poultry. Semi-frozen poultry will not cook evenly. If cooked for the number hours/min. per pound chances are the interior of a semi- frozen chicken or turkey will still be frozen while the outside is cooked.
