The slow cooker (sometimes called a "crock pot") allows foods to be cooked unattended. This makes the crock pot convenient to use. One of its benefits is the ability to simply place ingredients into the crock pot and turn it on. One of the dishes you can make is to put the frozen chicken in crock pot.

One simple crock pot cooking method involves using a chicken, straight from the freezer. There is no need to thaw the chicken or pre-cook it before placing it in the crock pot. Here are several frozen chicken crock pot recipes that are delicious and easy to make.

    Made this for dinner with the stuffing on top. It was delicious. Ill let you know if we lose anyone to food poisoning but i dont think so.

    The low temperature on a crock pot will heat chicken to about 190 degrees in approximately 7 hours so if you are cooking on low, you must cook for the full 8 hours. I usually cook on high for 4 hours and low for 2 hours. I have done this for the last 18 years, frozen boneless chicken breasts included and have never had a problem. I do not suggest cooking frozen chicken parts with the bone in ... in the crock pot. I usually thaw and boil for a few minutes beforehand.

    For the first recipe can I cook at high for 4 hours?

    I've used frozen chicken for over 13 years. I will buy family packs and section it out to meal portions. I've raised 7 children on frozen chicken to crockpot and/or oven with zero food born illnesses. I came here to get an idea how long the chicken will take to cook on high. I haven't been able to use a crockpot for 2 years, so a little squeaky on the restart ???? What made me kickstart cracking again?! Walmart had a GIANT bag of frozen chicken breast (about 16 in the bag) for UBER CHEAP!! And I grabbed it. Haha! Now it's 10 am and I'm trying to fast cook it so hopefully I can send hubby to work with a yummy home cooked BBQ chicken n baked tater meal. Happy cooking Ladies and Gentlemen!!

    As long as you bring the temperature up to 165 and maintain it until serving, it is fine to use frozen chicken breast. Bacteria start dying off at 145 degrees, that same bacteria is on the chicken wether you put it in frozen or not, the key to not making people sick is heating to and maintaining the correct temperature until serving.

    I totallt agree with Heather. Definitely, not safe to cook frozen chicken at such a lw temperature for a long time. These recipes sound awful.
  • Emma T.Jan.17 16:02
    @ : Actually, using the frozen boneless chicken breasts is fine. I use these type of recipes all the time and have had NO problems at all. There are dozens of recipes using boneless frozen chicken breasts and they are great! I know what the the FDA has said back in the 1970s and 80s...but the thing is, these recipes have been tested and are tried and true. They are also real "life savers" when one is pressed to come up with a healthy meal. I don't know about using very old crock pots (over 20 years old), but I know that the newer ones now work very well for this type of cooking.

    Never put frozen chicken directly into a crockpot pot. Always thaw first. -per USA recommendations. Placing frozen chicken in a crockpot pot will allow it to sit between 40 to -140 degrees for an extended duration of time, long enough to grow bacteria. This is a major risk for children, the elder and pregnant woman.
