I neglected to separate a bulk pack of chicken prior to freezing and now want to defrost only half of the pack. Is there any way to do this or do I need to just make something with a lot of chicken?

You probably need to use all that chicken within a relatively short period of time. I've never figured out how to divide a package like that. I feel your pain.
Otoh, you could make a double batch of something and freeze the extra one once it's been cooked.
Defrost them in the fridge and you can safely portion and refreeze as needed.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
