Yes, you can freeze cooked chicken and the dozens and dozens of frozen chicken meals on offer at the shops arre a testimony to it. The procedure is the general procedure for cooked food.

  1. Allow the cooked chicken to cool down to room temperature.
  2. Put the chicken in a container suitable for freezing food.
  3. Put the container in the freezer.

We like to keep cooked chicken frozen at home no longer than three months, and cooked chicken frozen at industrial facilities for no longer than six months.After that period, the chicken may be edible but the quality is worse, and the longer the food is kept frozen, the higher the risk of freezer burning.
