    That is really the best way to thaw the poultry. But I would use cold not tepid water.

    What's the fastest way to (safely) thaw frozen poultry without damaging it?

    So far, in a pot under running tepid water is the best I can think of. Please offer suggestions if you have one, thanks.

    Of course, I wouldn't be asking if I had the forethought to just leave it in the fridge for a couple of days. Doh.

    Cold, not tepid, thanks.

    I suppose tepid water could encourage bacteria...

    Under cold running water. I was always told the friction of the running water helped hasten the process.

    The best way to thaw frozen poultry is in the fridge. In my opinion.
