Now. One of the biggest questions I always get for crockpot chicken recipes . . .
Can you put frozen chicken in crockpot?
No! I mean. I have and lived to tell the tale, but technically you’re not supposed to cook frozen chicken in the crockpot due to food safety issues.
The chicken may or may not come to a safe temperature quickly enough in the crockpot.
So. It’s better to play it safe and use fresh or thawed chicken.
Anyway. Back to this deliciousness . . .
Tender chicken, ultra fluffy, slightly sweet dumplings/biscuits, the creamiest, most flavorful sauce . . .
