I've seen some chefs (like Robert Irvine) say that you must not thaw uncooked meat using hot water because it causes bacteria to grow. I'm sure that once you cook it, most of the bacteria will be killed off, but I'd still be cautious.

Also, I've used chicken that's been frozen in a salt solution. The chicken is really tender when cooked, but it's really salty for my taste.
