You are going to love the easy directions to show you how to cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker. This is what I call a dump and go recipe, meaning you put all of the ingredients into your slow cooker at once, cover, and turn it on.
There are only two steps to make this recipe.
Step 1: Add all of the ingredients to your slow cooker.
Step 2: Cover and turn it on high to cook for 4-5 hours and low to cook for 6-7 hours. That is it! It is a very popular dump recipe!
You can definitely cook a frozen chicken in the slow cooker, but it is going to take an EXTRA 4-6 hours to cook your chicken. In my recipe, it will be harder because I season the chicken under the skin so that the flavors seep into the meat. This can't happen if your chicken is frozen.
It is not dangerous to cook chicken in a slow cooker. When the chicken is done, it is very important to check the internal temperature before eating. You want to make sure your chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
