I keep store-bought chicken in the freezer, and usually defrost it in the refrigerator for ~36 hours before cooking the chicken. But this method requires me to decide 36 hours in advance when I would like to eat chicken. Is there a quick and easy method for defrosting frozen chicken breast?
I've tried using the microwave, but the chicken has a rubbery texture when I use the microwave and never tastes as good when cooked. I have also tried the method of running the chicken under water, but that method still takes a long time and wastes a lot of water.
