I partially defrosted some chicken at room temperature last night. When I realized we weren't going to use it, I stuck it in the "refrigerator" to use today. This morning, I was looking for the chicken in my fridge, only to discover I had absentmindedly put it back in the freezer...

Should I throw it out or use it???

I'd say no. My brothers deep freeze broke because of a dodgy electrical at his house, and all his meat thawed. We had to all take what we could, cook it, then re-freeze the cooked parts when he got a new freezer from his insurance

i'm seeing more & more packs of "fresh" raw & cooked seafood-fish,prawns,mussels & scallops etc-with wording on the packs that says that the product has been previously frozen but thawed/stored under chilled conditions & is therefore safe to re freeze.i guess that means that the people who have said that it's ok to refreeze if thawed in the fridge are right,particularly if it's ok for something like seafood then it should be ok for chicken?
I spent a lot of money on booze,birds & fast cars.The rest I just squandered.
