Yes, you can. As long as they have spent time in what is known as the dreaded temperature danger zone (TDZ), which is now, I believe, between 41 degrees F and 135 degrees F. As long as they are "partially defrosted," you're fine. Toss them back into the freezer. And get yourself a decent thermometer.

Sorry, I was overwhelmed by the GOP debate. That should have read: As long as they have spent LIMITED time in what is known as the TDZ. Sheesh.
