Cooking frozen meats makes it difficult to cook the meat properly. The outside of the piece of meat is likely to over cook by the time the center thaws then cooks properly.
Often, cooking instructions for meats start with taking the meat out of the fridge so it comes to room temperature before you start cooking.
