I put my chicken straight into the fridge to let it defrost from frozen and it keeps nice for a couple of days. Wouldnt chance anything long than a couple though.

Guidlines are straightforward, once defrosted chicken should be used within 2 days, i have done 3 days but would never go any longer.

ive defrosted chicken and had it in the fridge for two days and then cooked it, no problems at all.

i'd be concerned at three days in the fridge

I was reading an article about some guy eating out of date food which is perfectly safe but gets wasted anyway.

I think he ate meat 14 days out of date max and never got sick.

Smell is usually the first tell tale sign, if it smells funky you be the judge :-)

There was a documenty on 4 before about a guy eating meat that was 2 weeks out of date and stuff. As long as its well cooked the bacteria should die.

Yep 48hrs from you remove them from the freezer if you keep them in the fridge. You can deforst them in a water bath as long as the water is running and you must use them in 24hrs.
