Put it in a bowl of cold water. Will be defrosted in half hour.

Take them out of the styrofoam wrapper and put them in a ziplock when you put them in the cold water.

Can I ask out of curiosity why cold water? I would have thought warm water would defrost faster.

Put into a bowl of water and leave room temp running water to keep everything moving. Never leave in sitting water.

The hot water will start to change the color of the chicken and it will come out tasting gross once cooked. It's also a dangerous temperature to leave the chicken at.
The cold water sounds counterintuitive, but it actually works amazingly well!
