Freezing chicken

There's probably a question out there but couldn't find the answer to it. Just need to know how long can chicken stay frozen before it goes bad. I have a February 15 expiration date on some chicken breasts that have been frozen since. Would it be okay to cook it or should I toss it? Thanks.

They are fine.

I use mine up to 6 months, and some people go longer.

Agree with Jenny. The expiration date only applies to stuff that isn't frozen. Frozen food stays fresh for a very long time, but it may lose some quality.

Thanks. It's already cooking in the pot with chicken broth, Italian dressing, white wine and bbq sauce.

Yes. Isn't that a "use or freeze by" date anyway?
