While its not great to thaw and refreeze, you can to some extent. I partially thaw out the chicken (so that the centers are still frozen) with running, cool water.
Put the chicken in your sink and turn on the cold water so it runs over it. If it fits into some kind of container, like a bowl or pot or pan, then even better cause its the movement that does it.
(Caution: Mr Wizard Moment
) The running water creates a convection current, which even in cold water moves energy around in it, which thaws the chicken faster and without bacteria growth that warm water does
