  • I would feel more comfortable thawing the chicken and then cooking it in the crockpot. First of all, the meat will get to a safe temperature more quickly. Secondly, if it's frozen whole, the chicken likely still has the innards tucked into the middle, wrapped in paper. Those are hard to remove if the bird is isn't thawed.

  • I wouldn't do it frozen. I don't feel comfortable with that at all, and like Ballad said the guts are all up in there after cooking, and the bird can't be properly cleaned.

    My favorite way is to make a few foil balls for the chicken to 'sit' on in the pot, douse the skin liberally with Season-All, and cook it on HIGH for 4-4.5 hours. A lower temp will just make for very soggy skin.

  • Yeah, I dont do frozen chicken in the crock pot. It makes me nervous about food poisoning. I put my thawed chicken in, throw in some potatoes and carrots, onions, celery, and pour some onion soup mix dissolved in about 1/2 to 1 cup chicken broth. Cook it on high for about 4 hours. Its yummy!!!
