dinner reality check

crock pot chicken & rice


what? i have to make dinner tonight? is anyone else having these thoughts after the much needed christmas break? i am missing my mom's home cooking already! but it's back to the basics for us! this is our very favorite/easy crock pot chicken & rice recipe adopted from my sister-in-law sarah. yum!


ingredients:

2-4 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese (let sit out to soften)

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 pkg. italian dressing seasoning (the dried kind in the packet)

rice


stir the cream cheese, cream of chicken, and seasoning together in the crockpot. i actually start it on low and let them sit in there for about 30 min so the cream cheese is softer to stir. (but don't forget about them like i did today!) put the frozen (because i'm lazy) chicken in and cover with the mix. cook on high 4-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked and fall-apart-tender. after the first two hours when the chicken is softer i cut it up into strips for easier eating. how easy is that!?


cook the rice in a pot (or rice cooker if you're not dumb like me and know how to use the stupid thing) and smother with chicken mixture! the italian seasoning is the secret ingredient! so yum!

This turned out well! I think next time I'll add some fresh mushrooms towards the end of the cooking time.
Super easy recipe though. Love that it's only a few ingredients.

We make something similar to this, but it's called angel chicken! It's delicious.

Elizabeth said...

mines in the crock pot now, and if it tastes half as good as it smells it will be AWESOME.

I added about 3/4 can of water to the mixture as it wasn't integrating well, even after "meling" for 45 mins on low.

Heather said...

Is it supposed to be watery???

The flavor was good but it wasn't creamy and the cream cheese melted into little globs.

Stacy said...

Id suggest putting the CC in for the last hour or so. Even 30 minutes is enough.

Christine Wilson said...

What is the CC?

Robin said...

Would it be doable with sour cream instead of cream cheese? Trying to clean out my fridge...

juli said...

Made this tonight after finding it on Pinterest. It was really good. I had Italian seasoning instead of the dip mix and it was great. I thought it needed a little more sauce, so I would add 1 cup milk or sour cream next time. Very yummy - recipe will go into my own recipe box.

Grandma said...

About how much rice do you use? Sounds great. Want to give it a try!

Risse said...

found on Pinterest and making this as we speak. I hope this turns out good. Adding some onions as well

Crystal said...

I'm making today with Italian seasoning-any idea how much to do???? I'm scared I made it too strong :/

ChrissyG said...

Anyone ever made this without the cream cheese? Would I need to substitute something else for it? Husband doesn't like cream cheese, or sour cream, or anything like that. Just wondering how this would taste without that ingredient? :)

Angela said...

I made this the other night right off of Pinterest and it was pretty good! I had to add 1 cup of water because it was starting to scorch around the edges of the crock pot. It still turned out really well! Next time, I'll follow the suggestions of adding veggies.

Jenny said...

We made this today and it was AMAZING. Thank you for sharing your delicious and easy recipe!

Emmy said...

This was absolutely delicious! My family and in-laws loved it. I found it on pinterest.

Melanie said...

Found this recipe on Pinterest and tried it this weekend and it was a hit. Kids AND husband ate it. This rarely if ever happens in my house. Husband even got seconds. I added a bit of half-and-half to the cream cheese/cream-of-chicken mixture, and it was awesome. I'll probably try putting some frozen veggies in next time. Also, I used 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, and it was great.

Anita said...

It's in the crockpot now. I am testing a couple recipes because next week I have surgery then 2 weeks later my son has a kidney transplant. Since we will recover together, I need simple and good recipes for the crockpot or oven. Simple recipes, simple fix but need to be good good good!

Susan said...

This is a wonderful basic recipe!!

I added sauteed MUSHROOMS + GARLIC and 1/2 c CHICKEN BROTH + 1/2 c MILK at the beginning. Then during last 10 minutes, I added 1/2 c frozen PEAS. I served it over pasta sprinkled with PARMESAN cheese!!

Lisa1242 said...

How big of a can of cream of chicken do you use? the small one or the family size one?

jacksmom said...

This was fantastic. We had it tonight. I too added a little half and half in the beginning. I also only cooked it 4 hrs on high. I couldn't help it, it tasted so good I couldnt imagine it getting any better.

Unknown said...

This was good, but seemed really salty. We ate it over egg noodles.

Tanya McKibben said...

We had it tonight. So good. Thank you!

missy said...

Tried this tonight and it was really tasty! I should have read the other comments first ... I think it would be even better as some suggested with mushrooms and I also should have added milk or sour cream to thin out the sauce. I am gone to work longer than 6 hours so I will have to save this for days off or weekends when I can put it on later in the day. Thank you so much for this recipe, also came here from Pinterest.

kp1961bb said...

I would put it over buttered noodles. I will try this soon.

Juli said...

Just found your recipe via pinterest. It is now in my crockpot and it smells wonderful! Thanks for sharing it!!

Niki said...

found it on pinterest and im making it for my family now ! it smells delicious already !!

Gimme Symone! said...

I made this last night. It was awesome! We added corn and broccoli during the last 30 minutes. Thanks this is definitely a staple.

"M2" said...

saw on pinterest, have made this for years though really that chicken should cook in a tbsp of butter, a tsp of garlic and 1/2 cup white wine or sherry with the ital dressing----that makes it so much better adding the cream soup and cr z towards the end.

Chic Somethings said...

Made this today! It was fantastic! I made a few little changes:

-I added a fresh minced garlic, pepper and 1/4c skim milk
-Used fat free cream cheese and reduced fat soup
-Added baby carrots the full cooking time
-Added broccoli, peas, squash and mushrooms the last 45 min
-I also cubed the chicken before cooking

DELICIOUS! Even though I made it with fat free ingredients, it didn't bland the taste. It was a big hit, I'll definatly be making it again.

Jenny Hayes said...

As many others, I also found your recipe on Pinterest! I L♥VE easy recipes! I made this and doubled the recipe so I would have extra. I have one boy that would not eat the chicken.

So, I took the leftover, cooked some eggnoodles cooked them up, added them to the leftover chicken (cut up the chicken), then sprayed 2 8x8 dishes with cooking spray, then divided the chicken into two bowls, added one small bag of frozen peas to one bowl, and one small bag of frozen broccoli to the other bowl, pour each bowl in one of the 8x8 pans, bake @ 400 for 30 minute, take out top with with cheddar cheese and frenchs crunchy fried onions and bake an additional 5 minutes....
EVERYONE L♥VED IT AGAIN!!! EVEN THE ONE WHO WOULD NOT EAT CHICKEN!!!! HE ASKED FOR SECONDS!!

Marcie said...

My crockpot does run a little hot but I've never had a problem with food burning and scorching before. I put it on LOW and came back 45 minutes later and it was already burning around the edges! I added a cup of water and had to keep opening and stirring and turning it down to WARM just so it wouldn't burn. Had to add more water as well. The sauce tastes delicious and it smells amazing. It's still cooking...I'm sure it will taste great but definitely NOT something I can put it and leave the house and come back hours later to.

For Heavens Sake! said...

must try this one!

Sara said...

we made this tonight and it was scrumptious! thanks for sharing!

Kristen said...

Def going to try this this week! If i was to cook it on low -- how long should I keep it on for? Would like to put it on before leaving for work. Thanks!

Tara said...

In my crockpot now. Hope it is as good as everyone is making it out to be.:) I have mine in LOW and plan to cook for 6-7 hrs my chicken was thawed also so ill check it at 6 hrs.
I Love that it only has 5 ingredients. Those are the best!:)

jamie said...

I made this for supper tonight. I added some mushrooms and instead of rice used angel hair pasta it was amazing! It tasted like chicken tetrazzini except a whole lot easier to make.

Camille said...

making TONIGHT. cheers.

MamaBug said...

I made this with noodles and doubled the recipe, then poured the leftover noodles into the crockpot, scooped all out and refrigerated it for lunches. delicious!

Betha said...

You can actually put minute rice i use brown, in the crockpot wgen you put everything else in. When you out in the soup add a can of milk or wter like the can says that is the solutions to the moisture problem. The rice will be done but dont over cook. Thanks for the recipe ive never made it with cream cheese and Italian dip mix.

Jean Tuthill said...

I want to try this, it sounds delicious and easy!

Sarah K said...

I also added broccoli and it was perfecto! Great recipe that my kids scarf down!

kim said...

Thanks for sharing! Am making this today!

Alisha Rudd Photography said...

Not sure if anyone has already asked...but what if your chicken isn't frozen, what is the approximate cooking time? I can keep checking the tenderness, but thought it might be easier just to set it on a timer!

Gina said...

I made this today. My boys L-O-V-E-D it! They are super picky eaters so when my eldest (3 y.o) was LICKING his bowl clean, I knew it was a winner in our house. I will definitely have to make it again...and again...and again. My husband added Pace hot sauce to his. I hope doubling the recipe for leftovers won't take away from the flavor any.

Gina said...

Oh and I did defrost my chicken first (so I could cut off the fat) so it cooked in 4 hours. I put it on low for the 20 mins that it took to cook the rice.

Tina said...

I made this over the weekend and BF ate it all! Even what I had set aside for leftovers! This is amazing - he's so picky...he's already asked for it again! I defrosted the chicken, and left it about 4 hours on high.

Cindy Dadabo said...

I also add a can of cream of mushroom soup and/or a can of mushrooms. Tasty and doesn't make it runny at all. After I shred the chicken I serve this over biscuits and my family inhales it! LOL

Grandmasview said...

cooked this, got the recipe from co worker, it was so good that my husband ate most all of it, then asked me to make it again, within the same week! it is so easy and flavorful! I cooked it for my grown kids too, they were impressed that I took so much time out to cook (I didn't tell them how easy it was til way later in the evening)....it is a great recipe!

danielled211 said...

I tried this tonight and it was DELICIOUS!! Wow it's hard to find a simple crockpot recipe that turns out this good! The italian seasoning packet really made the sauce fantastic! The whole family loved it!

Brittany-Trends250 said...

cooking this now! found it on pinterest, SO EASY! thank you!

ann326 said...

I have made this dinner twice! It is wonderful and easy. The second time I made it, I added onion and mushrooms to the crock pot. Yummy! Thank you!

tippy2u said...

I just put this in the crockpot for dinner tonight. Can't wait to try it.

La.KellyBelle said...

I am adding fresh asparagus to my dish. Looking forward to this dish.

Btrflywmn said...

I was searching Pinterest for a chicken recipe and found this. It sounds so good, I read all the comments and I'm gonna add some mushrooms and garlic. Serve mine over egg noodles with some parmesan cheese on top. Love easy recipes, thanks for sharing.

VeganGem said...

Thank you for the recipe. Crock pots are just the easiest and best things.

Leslie said...

Found this on Pinterest, and I'm trying it tonight! I can't wait. We had rice the other night with dinner, so I think I'll try this over mashed potatoes instead. :-) Thank you!

sodalo said...

I have been using a recipe similar to this for a few months now - whole family loves it. I'm glad to see the vegetable ideas - gonna try some of them.

I have to ask what problem you are having with your rice cooker?... I have used one for over 20 yrs (tho I just got a new one that I love), maybe I can help :)

Julie Kiser said...

Just curious, could you use a packet of hidden valley ranch in place of the zesty italian?

Stefanie Nordberg said...

I found your recipe on Pinterest and am making it for dinner, it is smelling so good! Thanks for an easy idea for dinner!

Chrissie said...

I have to be away from my crockpot for 8 hours. Could i do this receipe on low? would it work?

Johanna Mahnke said...

I had this recipe through my sister for a little over a year now and we serve with rice or egg noodles. LOVE your tip about popping the sauce ingredients into the cooker for 30 minutes to soften them up! Thanks for that!

Cindy Dadabo said...

This recipe is definitely a keeper! I use a can of Cream of Mushroom and along with the can of Cream of Chicken and serve it over biscuits and my family goes wild over it. Even my 7 year old son loves it!

VeganGem said...

I love crock pot recipes and this sounds like a good one.

Stephanie Heffernan Stinelli said...

I ended up not having the italian seasoning or cream of chicken and used hidden valley ranch seasoning and cream of mushroom, along with the cream cheese and it was delicious!! didn't smell that good, but taste yummy, was very surprised!!

Stephanie Heffernan Stinelli said...

Just put this in the Crock pot for dinner tonight!! Hope it turns out as good as the posts here say. I will come back and let you know how it went!!

Lori said...

This turned out AWESOME!! It will be my new comfort food!! The whole house loved it!! We have been thinking of things we can also make with this like a pot pie because the sauce at the end is rich and full of flavor. I added a little salt and pepper because I like extra pepper but it really didn't need anything. I will be making this again!! Btw I also found this on Pinterest. Thank you for the recipe!!

Lydia said...

In the crockpot right now! Serving it over white rice tonight. Can't wait to try it!

whitney koonce said...

this was delicious! linking to you on my blog, whiskeyandsweettea.blogspot.com - thanks so much!

anneconover said...

I made this tonight exactly as written. I did let the cream cheese sit in the warming-up crock pot for about 30 minutes then used a whisk to stir in soup and italian drsg mix. I have to say - DELICIOUS - but we found it a tad salty so may use half the envelope next time or low salt soup. Sauce was very thick but perfect over rice. May thin it out if I serve over noodles next time so it really coats them. thanks!

Denise said...

This is a great recipe. It is open to so many variations! I put a variation of this on my blog too. I put a link from my blog to yours.
Thanks! Denise

MAllen said...

I found this on pinterest and made it tonight. It was the first crockpot recipe I've used (my mother in-law just gave me a crockpot) and I am so pleased with it! Yum! This recipe will stay in the family for a long time to come.

Jema McCardell said...

If you're trying to get out of the pkg mix rut, here's an Italian Seasonings Dressing mix: http://afewshortcuts.com/2012/01/tide-you-over-tuesday-homemade-italian-dressing-mix/

Yen said...

Found this on Pinterest and so excited to try it tonight! Thank you for the recipe :)

Geri Rister said...

Oh girl! learn to use your rice cooker!! it is amazing, turns out perfect every time, I add seasoning with the water or chicken broth - Hey I have even added the frozen vegies and CHICKEN to the macine! THIS recipe is awesome for leaving in the crockpot while you are gone then cooing up some rice when you get home and oput together the salad. Love this!

smylie13 said...

Hello all! I've made this receip for years. I've found mixing the cream cheese, cream chicken and Italian dressing together the night before is AWESOME. If the mis is too thick, I thin the mix out with chicken broth. I've used boneless thighs as well as bone in chicken. THe Hubs wants me to try this with pork chops or a pork roast. :)

Gwena said...

It the crockpot now. Found this on interest. So far...smells yummy! Thanks.

ringnald said...

I found this on pintrest and it's in the crockpot now! If it's as good as the bar-b-que chicken we had yesterday this is going to be awesome!!

Reba Shahan said...

Why "frozen" chicken?

Naima Lawshe said...

Total epic fail on this tonight! I have been wanting to make it for so long and finally had everything I needed. I followed the recipe and directions exactly but it had a terrible taste to it. I can only assume it had to do with the Italian seasoning packet because it didn't smell too good when I opened it. Any suggests are greatly appreciated!

Triple Trouble said...

This is super yummy with onions and mushrooms! And a little white wine!

Amy Bradley said...

Found this on Pinterest and made it tonight. Super yummy! I used fresh chicken (not frozen) cooking it on high for 2-2.5hrs. It was great! Will definitely make it again.

Unknown said...

I've made this recipe several times--with a few differences. I used the cream cheese with chives, also put in a half a cup of white wine, and served it over angel hair pasta. Rice would be good too though---just haven't tried it.

WeighToGo said...

Always a family favorite. Yummy comfort food too if you have to share a meal with another family. This one is easy to transport!

Lynn said...

I didn't have Cream of chicken, so I used cream of brocilli, Yum! Thanks for sharing!
Lynn

AmyStar said...

Tried this and WOWZA! Loved it! I added about 4oz of sour cream and two splashes of milk at the beginning to help get the sauce a little thinner, and at an hour to go until serving time I sauteed some mushrooms with garlic and olive oil and tossed those in there too. Served over spaghetti and it was FABULOUS! Going to try serving it over breaded egg noodles the next time I make it. Thanks a heap for the recipe!

Krimp Knight Stepanoff said...

I just made a freezer bag of this for a friend who is watching my son when I have my baby. It smelled fantastic. I hope it taste great for her and works out well as a freezer meal!

crogers9189 said...

I made this the other day and took some suggestions I added a can of cheddar cheese soup, 3/4 cup of water and then for the last 2 hours i added about 1/2 bag of frozen peas and carrots. We served it over rice and it was amazing! I took the leftovers and made a chicken pie a few days later, I simply added diced potatos, the rest of the peas and carrots and 3/4 cup of chicken stock.. heated it up on the stove then put in pie crust and baked for 45 minutes! It was AWESOME!

Marlene said...

I just had some for lunch with my dad and OMG delicious. Simple and very tasty. If my dad loved it it passed the test. Thanks.

Justinkristie Theheat said...

Thanks for posting! I just made this, but added mushrooms, a little plain greek yogurt, a little chicken stock, and white wine..DELISH!

Calypso98 said...

I'm going to try this today - sounds delicious!

BelleAur said...

My husband apparently raided my cupboard so I was halfway through prep before realizing I only had cream of mushroom soup and the McCormick Italian seasoning in the bottle. I used those and a bit of crushed garlic and it was amazing. Thanks, this recipe is always a hit at our house.

Trey Etter said...

My wife and daughter don't care for rice, so I served this with egg noodles instead. Turned out great. Thanks for the recipe.

Emily Maline said...

so going to try this tomorrow! thanks!

Pamela said...

so I didn't have cream of chicken soup so I used cream of mushroom, and I had to thaw my chicken because it was not boneless. After thawing and de-boning it took about 2:30:00 till shred-able then I left it for another 30 min. Really good.

Elizabeth Swann said...

Is the cream cheese very noticeable? I'm not a fan of it, but have noticed most dishes that include it I can't tell. Just curious...

Ann said...

Ann said...

I have made this twice now in the last week! I used frozen chicken breasts, the little boxes that Trader Joe's has of portobella cream of mushroom soup and some water to thin it out, and a block of reduced fat cream cheese. The first time I made it I let it go all day while at work, yesterday only about 4.5 hours (the chicken is fall apart tender if you leave it on all day!) This is delicious...for anyone that doesn't like cream cheese, it IS noticeable in this dish, and can make it very rich - I would maybe do a substitute with Neufchatel, cottage cheese, maybe some sour cream or nonfat Greek yogurt even?

Chelsea M said...

THIS WAS SO GOOD! I made it yesterday and almost ate half of it! ha. I added fresh mushrooms but Im a huge mushroom lover so I might add 2 cases next time.
Thanks for the recipe!

Doog said...

GREAT flavor; SUPER easy ! will work with a few suggestions of mushrooms and other veggies, next time !

christalovesotto said...

Great idea to add veggies; i will be adding grated cheddar as a topping! My friend Amy made this and I requested the recipe.....it's what's for dinner...Happy NYE everyone!

Michele said...

I made this for dinner last night (and to have for lunch today). It is delicious! The only changes I made were that I only used 3/4 of light cream cheese and I sprinkled a few dashes of Emeril Lagasse's "Essence Seasoning" that I had on hand from making gumbo. Will definitely make this recipe again.

Marge said...

Marge said...

Can anyone tell me how much rice they used. Having the right consistency would be helpful.

Bettina McCoy said...

I made this for dinner earlier tonight. It was super easy and very tasty! My fiance and I almost ate the who pot! As I was shredding the chicken, I realized that this would be a great base for chicken and dumplings. I'm definitely trying that next time. After reading the reviews, I made a few alterations this time. I softened my cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds, didn't let it sit on low for 30 minutes, added 1 1/4 cups of water in anticipation of it being too salty, and used fresh, chicken breast tenderloin. We ate it over rice. I can't wait to make it again with some of the suggestions from previous comments.

Marge said...

definitely needs some add'l water or milk added to this or it will start burning around your crock pot, I added milk, but it was a winner!

Elizabeth said...

Made this last night. It was a winner with the whole family. No burning issues here. Maybe you are using a too big crock pot? I used a 4 quart one and three chicken breasts and it fit in perfectly. The only think I did not like was the way it looked. Going to add a bag of peas or some mushrooms and spinach at the end next time to add some color.

Monique Hernandez said...

I made this for dinner tonight and while I think this dish has great potential,I would make some changes. I cooked 6 pieces of boneless/skinless chicken. I used 2 cans of cream of chicken (stick to 1 can). Next time I'd used 2 packages of Italian dressing, 2 cream cheeses, a little garlic and a little salt. I'd also chop up the chicken and lay it over pasta versus rice. I would add broccoli for the veggie on the side. All in all this was a nice creamy recipe. Thanks for the share!

Chelsea M said...

Has anyone tried it with Greek yogurt yet? I think Im going to today but Im a little nervous. I hope it comes out okay! :/

cnr said...

I just made this for dinner tonight! It was delicious! I served it over egg noodles instead of rice and had peas on the side. I will be making this again soon! 4 hours on high seemed a bit too much. I did 3 hours on high and 1 hour on low. I used about 7 chicken tenderloins instead of breasts and they were mostly thawed. Thanks for the great recipe!

Tatjana said...

How'd it work out? Trying to find alternatives to cream cheese

Tatjana said...

Would you blend up the cottage cheese to make it smoother? I want to find a less fat alternative. I have light sour cream and low fat cottage cheese sittin in my fridge which would be best? Thanks for
your help!

Brandi said...

What about potatoes? Has anyone tried this dish adding potatoes?

Lina Decker said...

Delish!!!

Heather said...

I made this and it was FANTASTIC! So easy and delicious!

Susan Yakus said...

Does anyone know what size can of soup to use? 10 0z. or Family size? Thanks

Mercy Lorenzo said...

I made this tonight, it was fabulous, will certainly make it again, very simple ingredients.

Mercy Lorenzo said...

I made this recipe tonight, it was fabulous, will certainly make it again. It is very simple

Miranda Alexandria said...

I didn't have the packet seasoning (they are hard to come by here) so I used my tube of organic Italian herbs and a bit of the dressing. Also used thawed chicken breasts, I will just do the 4 hrs on high. Hope it turns out! Thanks for sharing :)

Judy said...

Just put it all in the pot.. Set my timer to add chicken in about 15 min. (not frozen).It ought to be ready for hubby when he get's in about 8:30. Can't wait!

Judy said...

Well, I got a thumbs up from my hubby tonight. My GD even ate some and liked it..she is terribly picky. After our meal, I made sure the chicken was shredded and added some baby carrots, bag of peas. Tomorrow we will have a warm bowl of chicken soup.

Rory said...

I found this recipe a while back and decided to make it today. I started throwing the ingredients together trying from memory and though "cream cheese would make this nice" and put a block in. Then I came back to double check your recipe and realized that's what you had done anyways! I can't wait to eat this tonight for dinner, it sounds great!

Jessica Latham said...

Came out great. I had to make my own cream of chicken. Nice and creamy. Very easy. Thanks :)

Monica said...

Wow this was a hit! So creamy and delish. I doubled the recipe with 6 chicken breasts and it turned out awesome. I think it would be good over wide egg noodles as well and may try that next time, but the fact is I WILL be making this again! Thank you for sharing :-)

Jessi Mitch said...

If my chicken is thawed how long to cook?

Brittany Rose said...

I found this recipe on Pinterest and am trying it tonight! It sounds delish, but the real test will be whether the boyfriend likes it or not!

High hopes! (:

beckysings2u said...

@Brittany Rose....We're having this tonight too!!! The fam LOVES it! I always add 2 cans of cream of chicken to make it more moist and go farther :) Just my tip!

Ladyinwaiting35 said...

In making this tonight ;). Hope it's good. Don't have cream of chicken only cream of celery.

tempest teri said...

Old housewife...brand new crockpot! It's in...4 breasts,baby carrots, wine, garlic, and pak of seasoning with half can of chicken.Low. Will add other half of soup with cream cheese in last 30 min. or so. Jack Sprat will give it thumbs up or down. Stay posted.
Teri

Jessica said...

I put this on while home for lunch and wasn't sure what I would come home to. (Every time I attempt a crockpot meal while I'm working I mess it up somehow). I came home and shredded the chicken and tasted it while boiling water for egg noodles and was in heaven!!! It tasted wonderful over the pasta! Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Do NOT put frozen chicken in the slow cooker! That is a recipe for salmonella poisoning and extremely unsafe. No cook who knows anything about kitchen safety would recommend that. WOW.

I made this last night and it was a big hit with my husband! I pretty much followed the recipe, but added about 3/4 cup chicken broth, about 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, fresh mushrooms, and frozen peas and carrots. I let the cream cheese sit out to soften before throwing everything in the crockpot to warm up for about 30 mins (to make sure it was combined nicely) before adding the frozen chicken. I cooked it on low for 8 hours, then had it on warm for about 3 hours (since I was gone all day). It was done perfectly when I got home ready for dinner. It smelled great walking in to the house and tasted even better!

Even using frozen chicken and cooking on low, it was perfectly safe, no salmonella poisoning here :)
