  • Defrost it first. I took a class with a nutritionist, she said it isn't safe to put frozen meat in the crockpot....the center will spend too much time at an unsafe temperature, defrost it first and then put it in the crockpot.

  • I always defrost chicken before cooking

  • Roasted chicken in a crockpot is an impossibility. When you roast you use dry heat

  • It would be dangerous, unsafe temp. Roasting is done in oven, but if you want to cook it in crockpot, thaw it first!

  • All meats put into a crockpot should be thawed out, no frozen meats. But I don't think you can use it to roast anything?

  • I put frozen everythign in the crock pot and it always comes out wonderfully. But I agree it won't be roasted - it'll be slow-cooked.

  • it will be cooked frozen or not just takes longer

  • You can cook either way, but frozen takes longer. I always defrost my to cut down on cooking time.

  • Either way, just make sure the inside is completely cooked.
