This chicken safe to use?

Normandie | Dec 27, 2009 09:49 PM

Sorry; I know this is a worn-out question, but I really don't know what to do (throw out or use).

I accidentally defrosted too many chicken breasts for a recipe cooked on Christmas Day. I took the breasts out of the freezer late on the night of the 23rd. They were in the refrigerator, then, all day on the 24th and were still slightly frozen Christmas morning, so I finished defrosting them on low power Christmas Day. Ergo, the unused ones have been in the refrigerator since the 23rd, fully defrosted since the 25th. Would it be safe to use them tomorrow (the 28th) to make soup and stock? Or should I toss them at this point?
