Can You Put Frozen Chicken in the Crock Pot
The answer is yes! Because life is not perfect, I often forget to defrost the chicken that I want to use for dinner and have cooked frozen chicken many times in the crock pot.
The important thing to remember, is to make sure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees. Also, it may take longer for the chicken to cook. Depending on your crock pot, you may need to add up to two extra hours to the cooking time.
How to Wrap Chicken in Bacon
Lay boneless, skinless chicken breast on top of the bacon and start wrapping.
In a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice and the chopped apples; set aside while you wrap the chicken in bacon.
Meanwhile, prepare your chicken by placing each chicken breast on top of the strips of bacon; 3 pieces of bacon per chicken breast. Wrap the bacon around each chicken breast and place inside the crock pot with the seam side of the bacon on the bottom.
How to Long to Cook Chicken in the Crock Pot
Cover the chicken with the barbecue sauce and apple mixture and cook on low four to six hours or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
My crock pot cooks fast, so usually after 4 hours, I check to see if the chicken is done. If you overcook the chicken, it can get dry, so check it after a few hours.
Remove the chicken from the crock pot and place on a platter. Pour the liquid through a sieve and you’ll get a really nice sauce with the apples that you can drizzle on top of the chicken and serve on the side. The apples add a really nice flavor to the barbecue sauce.
