I made my weekly 12-15 breasts on Sunday (last sunday) froze a few I wouldn't use on Tuesday took them out Thursday and let them defrost. I just ate one cold and it tasted funky!!!!!

Am I doomed? Food poisoning? Why did it taste weird? I heated it up and it still tasted funky, so I chucked it all.

What did I do wrong?

probably put it in the freezer while it was hot or warm. That could have spoiled it.

Really? Also am I going to get food poisoning?

Not sure. How sensitive is your stomach? Just wait and see how you feel I guess.

If you throughly cooked them, and they went straight in the freezer, things are fine.

Lets assume the following.
You had poultry that was still fresh.
You cooked it to at least 165 to kill off lots of harmful bacteria.
You immediately froze it, and your freezer is at or below 0F, where it stayed.
You defrosted it and ate it immediately, without letting it chill on the counter all day first.

Well, if the above applies, you're probably fine.
