How do you cook a whole frozen chicken?
You thaw it first. Either that, or find a huge pot and boil it.
Can you cook a frozen whole chicken and how much time do you allow when it is cooked from a frozen state?
Yes you can cook chicken breast from frozen, but when it goes into the oven and cooks, it will let out a lot of water (from the defrosting). But make sure to add an extra 10 minutes or so for defrosting time in the oven. If you prefer it, defrost the chicken first, then cook it for as long as you usually would.
It is important to cook chicken thoroughly. For a 4 pound whole chicken, preheat your oven to 450 and cook the chicken for about fifteen minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 and cook for about another hour and a half. If you have stuffed the chicken, you will need to add fifteen minutes to the cooking time.
