Can you put frozen chicken in the crockpot?While it is possible to cook frozen chicken in the crock pot, it isn’t recommended by food safety sites. The chicken sits in the temperature “danger zone” for an extended period of time and may develop bacteria. Always make sure that your chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 160 F and tent it with foil for 10 minutes so it reaches 165 F with carry-over cooking.
