Frozen Whole Chicken, how long to thaw..

How long should I give a small frozen whole chicken to thaw before I boil it for chicken n dumplings????

Its really frozen.. I wondered if I could actually stick it in the water frozen and just let it simmer/ then boil later on today... I would really really like to have chicken n dumplings tonight. LOL

Let it sit in a sink full or large stock pot full of water (they recommend cold, but I always use hot), changing the water every half hour. It shouldn't take more than 3 hours to defrost if you ignore the advice of professionals and use hot water!

I cook whole chickens from frozen all the time. Just make sure they don't have the gizzarad/innards wrapper in them because most of the time they are plastic.
