i just dug out some chicken that was in the freezer for about a year. the frugal me didn't want to toss it as it looked ok, so i made it with more recently frozen and thawed chicken.
you could definitely tell which was which. it wouldn't kill you (my cooking might do that by itself
), but i'm gonna go with k.t.e.'s suggestion next time and feed it to the pets.
then we'll be even for what they make me do with their litter boxes.
