Keeping it Safe
The best way to thaw frozen chicken is in the refrigerator. Never thaw chicken or other meats at room temperature on the countertop, since that would provide an ideal temperature for bacterial growth. When thawing chicken in the refrigerator, place on a plate on the bottom shelf to prevent any raw juices from dripping onto other foods or refrigerator surfaces. For quicker thawing, place chicken in a large resealable freezer-weight plastic bag, then seal bag and submerge in cold water. Let stand until thawed, changing the water every 30 min.
