Frozen Chicken and no time to defrost? No problem! Place the frozen chicken in a microwaveable bowl. Fill the bowl with water until chicken is submerged. Microwave for 3-4 minutes and voila, you have yourself defrosted chicken without the wait! Also great because it doesn't cook the chicken like other quick defrosting methods.
Defrost your chicken quick...put it on a piece of foil while you heat your oven to 200 degrees. When it reaches 200, turn off the heat, throw the chicken and foil in the oven, and wait twenty minutes. This will thaw your chicken without cooking it!
