Was this at room temperature or did you place the bowl in the refrigerator? If you left it out on the counter I would throw it away, I always play it safe with food, especially poultry. My rule is if in doubt throw it out! If it thawed in the fridge it is probably safe.
If the chicken is in the fridge, you're fine. On the counter, toss it out, no doubt. In general, you should thaw meat in the refrigerator on a tray, not in water. That will take about 24 hours. If you want to that's something out quickly, put it in a bowl and leave it in the sink with cool water running over it (just a dribble) until it is thawed. Then cook immediately.
