A whole chicken can last up to a year... chicken parts, 9 months.

Wrap it real well in freezer wrap and foil to avoid freezer burn.

Even if it shows signs of freezer burn, you can still cook it. Just rinse the ice off of it so that it doesn't cook that yucky taste into the chicken, season it well, and cook as normal.

6 months

Take your chances with anything after that.

For pickles(unopened) shelf life is 1 yr
Same with flour.

If opened then 6 mo. max

As long as it doesn't stink or look goofy, cook it up and eat it. Try some bbq sauce. We are all watching our money.

It's not a question of it "going bad" like it would in the fridge. It's a matter of quality being reduced because of freezer burn and drying out. Chicken should keep for years and years in a zero degree farenheit freezer, and as long as it's well sealed it should not get freezer burned either.

I use a FoodSaver machine with the sealed, vacuum packed bags and there isn't a trace of burn on stuff I've had frozen for over a year.

Not true in the freezer. The taste may be less than stellar but it will not spoil due to bacteria.

Same thing with pickles on the shelf. They will last a LONG time on the shelf, but will reduce in taste and freshness. But there is little risk of spoilage unless there is a problem with the container.

Flour is a different story because it comes from the mill with little bug larvae in it that eventually hatch into bigger bugs. Flour is also not sealed from the factory, so it can go rancid due to oxidation of the oils inside. TIP: To keep flour for extended periods, vacuum pack it in FoodSaver bags and then freeze the bags. I store my sealed bags in a big chest freezer and the flour lasts FOREVER. I've even heard the bug larvae die after a few days in the freezer so technically you can remove the bags and leave in dry, room temp storage for a long time. The only caveat to vacuum storing flour is that you have to SIFT it when you open the package. Otherwise you have very clumpy flour.

I have chicken in my freezer that I put there over a year ago. If it has freezer burn, then you'll need to pressure cook the meat so that it won't be really tough to eat.

I've used chick a year later, esp if sealed properly and no freezer burn. As it is pre-Fukushima radiation meat, think twice before you toss it prematurely. Cook up sauteed garlic and onions as a hedge against bacteria.
