It is ready when it is ready. Thawing in room temperature water is the way to go. But, you can't expect a miracle.
Using a microwave on a big hunk of meat is going to leave you disappointed. Some of your bird will start to cook, while other parts remain frozen.
Cooking, real cooking, takes time and planning.
Focus doesn't hurt either. Try a cold shower before your next cook.
