I moved a frozen whole chicken from the freezer to the fridge on Saturday morning. It's Tuesday -- can I cook it for dinner, or do I need to chuck it?

Leaning toward no based on general meat squeamishness (also this chart
, which, yes I know the government is overly anal about such things, but then again I'm well outside the 2-day window). Then AGAIN it wasn't a fresh chicken, it was fully frozen. It was also in one of those fully sealed plastic bag thingys, not just plastic-wrapped onto a butcher's tray, if that matters.
It's not the end of the world to toss it and pick up a new one at the store, but what would you do? HAVE YOU EATEN SIMILAR CHICKEN AND LIVED TO TELL THE TALE?
