How long do you thaw chicken in your fridge?

I've had it the fridge since lastnight right before bed or so and just checked it. It's not quite done. And is it ok to wait till tomorrow to cook? As long as it's in the fridge, it should be ok, right?

  • I don't know I did that about 2 weeks ago and puked the rest of the night. I would rather be safe than sorry.

  • I usually give it two or three days since it depends upon your refrigerator and the temperature it is set at that will determine how long it will take to defrost.

  • It should be fine as long as it is refrigerated.

  • Our freezer and fridge are set pretty cols So I usually thaw in 2 days, or set on the counter for few hours to give it a head start.
