Yes. All fresh, single ingredient chicken is gluten-free. Always be sure to look for any fine print that may mention added solutions, seasonings or coatings.
When possible, thaw your frozen chicken in the refrigerator, never on the countertop. This generally takes about five hours per pound, so it's good to plan ahead. If you're in a hurry, you can immerse wrapped poultry in cold water. Be sure to change the water every half hour or so for effective thawing. You can also use the microwave, but watch the chicken carefully since the thinner portions tend to cook while the thicker sections are still thawing. Follow the microwave manufacturer's recommendations regarding defrosting cycles for poultry.
