    Default Cooking and freezing

    Is it bad to cook something (i.e. chicken) and then freeze it, and reheat/cook it later?

    No absolutely not. It is bad to thaw something raw (like chicken) and refreeze it. I would slightly undercook anything that's going to reheated later, just to maintain a good finished product. You can prepare and freeze many dishes with excellent results.

    No, if that were the case then we wouldn't have the frozen food aisle. Duh.

    (sorry, but I couldn't help it)

    Just make sure the food cools before you stick it in the freezer.

    I freeze stuff all the time, it's fine. The only thing I notice is that the texture of meat and poultry suffers when frozen. I wouldn't freeze an expensive cut.

    ^ this. But I frequently made casseroles for later in the week, assembled them and froze them, and just re-heated them in the oven later when I was too busy to cook.

    I freeze soup in freezer bags and also pierogi when we make a bazillion of them.

    Frozen tofu comes out with a kind of cool texture.

    Alright, thank you!

    @Marm: The frozen food aisle is full of peculiar things that may have been engineered specifically to be frozen and unfrozen hahaha

    I might agree with you, except that I've bought organic vegan frozen food, and Kashi makes frozen food and none of those things were weird or genetically engineered.

    Most meats start to lose taste after 3 months of freezing so make sure you keep things dated. Its not a safety issue its a quality issue.
