It depends, because a frozen chicken it is very hard. You can cook it frozen, there is no problem with that, but this will mean that you will be cooking the whole chicken as is. Let's say you are making soup or baking it, it will be fine. But if you need small pieces you will need to let it thaw first in order to remove the skin, bones, etc. hope it helped

If it's already cut in pieces, yes you can do this but allow extra cooking time. I'd let a whole bird thaw before cooking. I put an herbed butter sauce on frozen chicken breasts and bake in a 375 oven for about 40 minutes. I don't think pan frying or deep frying would work as well, although poaching would do fine.
Whole chicken should be thawed in the fridge until ready to cook. Pieces can be completely immersed in tap water to thaw quickest, then cooked. If you try to cook bone-in chicken without thawing, you risk under-cooking at the bone which means you bite into bloody chicken, which is at the least, gross and at most, dangerous.
