    Frozen Chicken in crockpot

    Thu Feb 03, 2005 2:48 pm Groupie
    Is it ok to put frozen chicken breasts in the slow cooker? I usually try to defrost and then cook for a shorter time on low, but I'd love to pop frozen ones in and have them cook longer...

    I always throw my chicken in frozen. It does produce more liquid tho, so be careful.

    Most Crockpot's advise against this because of the potential to break the ceramic crock , however I do it to icon_wink.gif

    Yep, I do it, too!

    Edited to add: however, I'd recommend doing this only on high. It's important to make sure the chicken gets hot enough all the way through so that it's completely safe to eat.

    I work as a cook/caterer and have a current food handlers card, my advise is to stick to fully defrosted meats for the crock pot. The slow heating process used by a crock pot appliance is inappropriate for frozen meats because it takes too long for the meat to heat to a safe to eat temperature. Food that spends too much time in the "danger zone" can produce bacteria, possibly causing illness. Yes people do it, no it won't kill you .... but 24 hour bugs are generally food related. Why risk it? D

    Chef, I really appreciate you sharing that. I will no longer be putting frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot, even on high. Though we haven't had any trouble yet, tummy bugs are no fun and not worth risking, especially with kids.
