How to defrost chicken quickly

Want to cook some chicken, but it’s frozen solid? Or did you just forget to pull it out of the freezer, even though The Hubs (aka my husband) asked you several times…Yeah, that happens a lot. But, thankfully, it’s pretty easy to quickly get it de-frozen (that’s totally a word!).

Step one: get your chicken and a bowl. (Shout out to Costco’s giant bags of frozen chicken – you the real MVP here.)

Step two: put the chicken in a plastic bag.

Step three: add COLD water to the chicken bowl. Don’t add hot water, you’ll get sort of cooked, gross chicken.

Step three: wait about 30-60 minutes, check and/or flipping halfway through. If you need to, dump out the water and put fresh water in. The point is to get the ice up to thawing temperature.

Step four: cook the chicken! I pulled my chicken out to add it to some leftover butter chicken (yum!) for dinner.

Let me know how you cooked yours!
