This is the easiest way :

var
  bmp : TBitmap;
  ico : TIcon;
  TmpDC : HDC;
begin
  ico := TIcon.Create;
  ico.LoadFromFile( 'd:\chip.ico' );
  bmp := TBitmap.Create;
  bmp.width := ico.width;
  bmp.Height := ico.Height;
  TmpDC := CreateCompatibleDC( 0 );
  DeleteObject( SelectObject( TmpDC, bmp.Handle ) );
  if DrawIcon( TmpDC, 0, 0, ico.handle ) then
    bmp.SaveToFile( 'd:\chip.bmp' )
  else
    ShowMessage ('I can''t convert' );
  DeleteDC( TmpDC );
  bmp.Free;
  ico.Free;
end;
