Sounds hard to believe, but it is possible to put a whole frozen chicken in the crock pot and have dinner in about 7-8 hours. When I buy the chicken, I unwrap it and take the gizzards out and also remove the paper placed under the bird. I also try to purchase a chicken with a pop-up timer. Then I re-wrap the bird and freeze it until I'm ready to cook it. Please keep in mind that I have a new crock pot which seems to be hotter than my old one, so cooking times may vary a bit. The original idea for this recipe came from Taste of Home. This is my modification. Hope you enjoy!
