If you defrosted it in your fridge you are likely fine to wait another day. If you did the cold water method, you are likely still fine. However, if you left it out on the counter to thaw, you should probably chuck it.

Well it depends. How old was it when you froze it? Had it been sitting in your fridge for 5 days before you froze it or did you bring it home from the market and freeze it right away?

Defrosted on counter top overnight and then put it in fridge at 10 this morning when i left house for an hour ---- 12 hours later after Paddies day parade, rugby match and chinese in friends house i arrived home so reckon i'll chuck it!

Btw, if I had defrosted it fridge would it have defrosted in 12 hours? it weighed just under 5 pounds.

Defrosting on the counter is never safe so it is a good thing you are chucking it.

so what we are saying is that the chicken was unsafe by 10am this morning...
BEFORE it went into the fridge, right?

I just gotta learn my chicken etiquette! LOL
