Using frozen chicken thighs? Keep these rules of thumb in mind when defrosting:
• Chicken should not be thawed on the countertop.
• It takes about 24 hours to thaw a 4-pound chicken in the refrigerator. Cut-up parts, 3 to 9 hours.
• For quick thawing of raw or cooked chicken use the microwave. Thawing time will vary according to your microwave.
• Chicken may also be safely thawed in cold water. Place chicken in its original wrap or watertight plastic bag in cold water. Change water often. It takes about 2 hours to thaw a whole chicken.
