I made this one day when I was in a very big hurry to get to work, but I also wanted a nice dinner to come home too. Since my Fiance works the same hours almost that I do...well, that wasn't happening. So, I decided to see how a whole frozen chicken would do in a crock pot, and it was great!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the chicken and the mushrooms in a crock pot set to low.
  2. (I put mine on high, but it's really old and doesn't heat up as well as it should, so go with your instincts on this one).
  3. Place all the other ingredients in a food processor (I use one mini food processor) and blend them into a paste.
  4. Pour the paste over the chicken and mushrooms, cover with the lid, and let it cook for about 10 hours ENJOY.
  5. PS it will be very VERY tender so be careful when you are taking it out of the crock pot because it will just fall apart.
  6. Also, the stock that the chicken makes is GREAT for chicken noodle soup!

This was wonderful and easy. I put the onions UNDER the chicken with some mini carrots. I put the sauce ingredients (minus onions) in a mini processor and poured it over. This will make some great chicken broth. I just leave the bones and stuff in the crock pot, add water and let cook on low overnight. Then I strain and put in containers in the freezer.

"Cut food into chunks or small pieces to ensure thorough cooking. Do not use the slow cooker for large pieces like a roast or a whole chicken because the food will cook so slowly it could remain in the bacterial "Danger Zone" — between 40 °F and 140 °F — too long."

Oh my God!!!!! This was the best chicken I have ever cooked!! I would give it 20 stars if I could.!! Thank you so much for the recipe. I didn't use a frozen chicken, but kept everything else the same. The broth was outstanding. I added rice the last 1/2 hour of cooking and it was beyond words!! Fellow foodies, this recipe is a must and a big keeper!!! Thanks again!! Jules
