  • fill the kitchen sink up with HOT water and put the chicken in it, it will help it thaw out pretty quick

  • You can put it in a gallon bag in a sink of cool water or thaw it in microwave. how are you cooking it? alittle frozen may not hurt, just take longer but I like to thaw it.

  • You can still cook it, it'll just take longer. I would slice it up and do a stir fry type thing, though.

  • Why don't you just put it in a pot of water and let it boil once it is cooked shred the meat off with a fork or wait for it to cool off and use your fingers to peel off the meat.

    And use the meat to make taco's or enchiladas mmmm!!!! You gave me an idea I think we'll have that tonight.eating

  • I never thaw my chicken first. Well I usually make chicken breasts. I cook it for around an hour in the oven at like 375 and its done :)

  • I"d throw it right in the oven, but make sure you add a little bit of water and you'll have to cook it a little longer.

  • to thaw fast...put the meat or whatever in a ziplock bag, close it, and put it in a pot of cold water. dont boil it or anything, just let it sit there. its thaws in like an hour or two...and doesnt start to cook funny like in the microwave. i do it all the time. my friends mil taught her and she taught me.
