I buy boneless chicken breast frozen in bulk and get a lot of uses out of it. Straight from the market I leave out the chicken breast to thaw out 1/2 of the way and then I take a few and cut them into nuggets which I fry and store in freezer for anytime use.
Instead of pounding boneless, skinless chicken breasts for breaded chicken or sandwiches, I simply slice them in half horizontally to reduce their thickness. This is much easier and less messy than pounding them out in plastic wrap.

When I want to make chicken strips from frozen boneless chicken breasts, I take them out of the freezer for approximately 30 minutes. It makes the cutting more uniform and a lot easier!

On the back of the bag should tell you the instructions.
Cooking directly frozen takes a little longer. For instances unfrozen chicken breast would take 20 - 30 minutes. You are looking at 30 to 45 minutes for frozen chicken breasts.
I cook mine at 350 F for 50 minutes to an hour. They come out very juicy.
Here is a basic method:
It used to have directions on these bags. For some reason, they stopped putting the directions on the bag in favor of just the recommended internal temperature of the meat.
What i am seeing on your package is Thin-Sliced Chicken Breasts which means they will cook in less time than your traditional chicken breast.
This may be a better way:
BAKE: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place breasts in lightly oiled shallow roasting pan and season. Bake 15-25 minutes, to 170ºF internal temperature. If frozen then you may have to add 5 minutes but i would start checking at 15-20 minutes.
Bake at 325-350 for about 30 minutes, then turn and bake until done. How are you planning on serving these? BBQ or with a coating or baked plain?? Skinned or skinless? All that counts into how long you cook it.
