if you microwave a frozen dinner with chicken for a little longer than it says,  does it make the chicken rubbery or chewy?

Or does that mean it wasnt cooked

    The meat in these meals is already cooked at the manufacturer. They are rubbery because you didn't follow the cooking instructions and cooked it for too long.

    Chances are the meat is not meal muscle meat, rather it is a formed slurry concoction formed into what looks like real meat. And some TV dinner foods have rubbery meat. Overcooking them will just dry them out more.

    Don't do that. It dries out the meat and makes it tough to eat. Manufactures of frozen dinners are conscious of the liability of putting too-short heating times on their packaged meals for which they may be sued.  If you're really concerned, buy an instant read thermometer and check your chicken. If it's 165° it's just right and perfectly safe to eat.

    The chicken in those frozen meals is already cooked before the meal is frozen.

    Overcooking it (or rather, over reheating in) likely caused the rubbery texture.

    Overcooked chicken gets rubbery, yes.
