Why does it need to be defrosted first before cooking?
This from wiki:
Do not cook frozen chicken in the microwave or in a slow cooker. However, chicken can be cooked from the frozen state in the oven or on the stove. The cooking time may be about 50% longer. Some advise against cooking frozen meat and poultry altogether; with chicken, always check the temperature with a food thermometer to ensure proper cooking.

Can I cook frozen chicken, or do I have to let it defrost first?
In a pinch, go ahead, but allow extra cooking time. For the best texture and tenderness, however, you're better off starting from refrigerator temperatures; you can be more sure of getting an evenly cooked product.

Hmm, interesting. Seems like there are so many different opinions on this matter. No consensus.
I'm hungry and feel like cooking a chicken breast, but they're all frozen rock solid. Maybe I'll just throw it in the oven... and slap some barbeque sauce on it half way through cooking.
