Can severely freezer-burned chicken be "rescued"?

I understand the basics of how freezer burn works, and realize that the outside of my chicken breasts are now dried out. I also know from experience that if I grill them up, they'll be tough, dry, and generally not worth eating.
What if I cooked them in a crock pot with lots of broth? Would that rehydrate the chicken and make it good to eat again? What about in a stew? Or should I just cut my losses and pick up another bag 'o chicken?
Does anyone have experience with this or easy recipes they can recommend? (The easier to make, the better!)
