You can cook raw chicken in the slow cooker. The key to cooking chicken is to cook it to a temperature of 165 degrees F, so if you are in doubt you can always use a meat thermometer to check the temperature of your chicken once it’s done cooking.
You can cook frozen chicken in your slow cooker, too! Frozen chicken will take longer to cook – usually about 50% longer than it takes to cook fresh chicken.
