Can I refreeze chicken nuggets?


I know strange but I didn't know where else to put this...

Last night my son turned off our refrigerator/freezer without us knowing. I bought some groceries today and was putting them away when I noticed it felt different. I opened it up and noticed the dials were turned off. I quickly put them back on and checked the freezer. Everything was still pretty frozen. My frozen veggies thawed some but all my raw meats were still frozen. My question is I have 3 bags of chicken nuggets (tyson) in the freezer and they got a little soft. I wouldn't say they thawed completely but maybe half way. Are they still safe to eat? Can I refreeze them? There is noway we can eat up 3 bags of chicken nuggets tonight. Please tell me I don't have to throw them out b/c we are low on money so every bit counts. Thanks!

I would but I eat all kinds of shite. I deffo wouldn't reccommend it.
Can you not cook them and stick them in the fridge?

I guess I could but this was HOURS ago so I assume if they are not safe then cooking them wouldn't matter at this point right?

What about frozen veggies, waffles and bread are they ok?

Its not normaly a good idea to refreeze things that have defrosted but what you can get away with is cooking them up then freezing them till needed although this is fine with most foods though iv never actualy tried it with chicken nuggets ( have with chicken breast) no not too sure how they will turn out

Bread you can refreeze fine but veggies will go mushy when you go to cook them if you refreeze them, everytime you freeze fruit or veg you destroy their moleclules.
waffles should be ok to refreeze.

I think most chicken nuggets are already cooked or part cooked when bought frozen though, arent they? So would already have been cooked and frozen once already, if you follow me?

These are fully cooked nuggets. So your saying they should be fine then? I guess I don't follow.

I'd say fine to cooking them now and eating them up, but not cooking and re-freezing, or putting back in freezer now xx
