How to Thaw Chicken Quickly and Safely
When thawing chicken under running water, be sure to use cold water. Keep the chicken in its original wrap or place in water-tight resealable plastic bag while thawing it under the water. Be careful not to cross-contaminate other food products, work surfaces or utensils with the dripping water.
For a golden appearance, after chicken is done set oven to broil. Broil chicken 2 to 4 min. or until golden brown.
