Can you cook a frozen chicken in the slow cooker?
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.
Is it dangerous to Cook Chicken in a Slow Cooker?
