Chicken defrosting for over a day?

So I was defrosting some chicken breasts for a crock pot meal 2 days ago. I set them out Wed night and checked them thursday and they were basically still frozen solid.

So I let them defrost another day (since i've always heard frozen meat in crockpots is not a good idea)

They are thawed completely today, but it makes me wonder if it's safe? Since most defrosting is done in a day for meats...but I can't imagine the temp ever got too high up for too long? Our fridge stays pretty cold after all.
