"I buy whole chickens when they are half price and freeze them. But often it seems like I am caught with a frozen chicken and not enough time. I like chicken sandwiches and chicken salad for lunch so I tried this. The meat is super juicy and tender, and this works for unfrozen chicken too. Of course you can add any seasonings, but cooked plain it is so nice and chickeny!"

"You can't get much easier than this! My chicken was already defrosted so I cooked it on low for about 8 hours. I think if it was frozen, I'd try cooking it for about 10 hours.? I did put a spice rub over the chicken before throwing it into the crock pot. The chicken came out so tender. Next time, I'd like to try it using a frozen chicken. Thanks for posting!"
"What a great and fun recipe. I was really interested in using a frozen bird for this and a little afraid of not adding any liquid. But it worked out perfectly. I cooked it on low for about 12 hours and it was fall-apart tender and moist. After shredding the chicken I put the carcass back in the crockpot, added some more water, and simmered for a few hours to make a delicious broth. My 2nd picture we were calling 'frankenstein chicken' because it literally fell apart taking it out of the crockpot. I tried to put pieces back into place - but it was perfect for Halloween. lol. Thanks firefly68 for a nice new keeper. Made for Fall PAC 2012."
"I used an unfrozen chicken, added salt, and cooked it on low for 10 hours. Not only did I get fall-off-the-bone chicken, but I got 14 ounces of tasty gelatinous broth as well."
"Okay, I thought no way! I decided though that I would season this chicken -- garlic salt and onion powder. Wow!! Delicious melt in your mouth tender chicken. Yes, I will make this again and again. (LOL on the second ingredient by the way.) My chicken was already thawed out, however, I had to do two seperate shifts and knew I would not have time in-between to bake the bird -- so I tossed it into the crock before leaving on my first shift and it was ready before I left for my second shift. (6 hour shift with 2 hour break for a 12 hour shift.) I would give it 10 stars if I could. Thank you for sharing."
