24FAn - Thanks for your response. The ones I have are boneless. Just curious, what is the difference in thawing them first? Seems like it wouldn't make that much difference if you are just boiling them for chicken salad except for, of course, boiling from frozen would take more boiling time. Or does it affect the tenderness also? Just wondering because I've never boiled chicken before.
