To Keep or to Toss: Accidental Freezer Chicken

I had a 2 day old half breast of roasted bone-in chicken. While cleaning up, I put the breast in a tupperware in the freezer instead of back in the fridge where I got it from.

(A) I'm assuming it's safe to eat, but please tell me if I'm wrong

(B) I'm more concerned that the texture will be off - do you think it will be OK? I don't usually freeze cooked chicken on its own (just part of greater dishes that I've made)

(C) Best defrost? Just let it defrost in the fridge?
