How to Make Frozen Chicken in a Crock Pot?

When using a crockpot for cooking frozen chicken, make sure it is completely defrosted before beginning the cooking process. Allow at least three to four hours of cooking time, depending on the quantity and type of chicken you’re cooking. But don’t worry, some strategies can help you cut the cooking time even more. Get advice from a crockpot manufacturer or a food safety agency if you’re unsure whether frozen chicken should be cooked in a crockpot.

Chicken breasts are the most accessible component of the bird to prepare, and this is because they are boneless and thaw quickly.
