24 hours for every 4-5 lbs. in the fridge, which is much safer than defrosting in the sink. Ice water bath recommended when short on fridge space!

The safest ways to defrost anything are in the refrigerator or in cold water. Anything defrosted in the microwave must cooked immediately upon removing it.
