It is advisable that you do not wash the chicken before cooking. This is from the food standards. Yes relatively new. The reason is because more bacteria is splashed around by washing it and therefore you are at higher risk of contamination in your working area. Cooking the chicken kills the bacteria.

I always rinse the meat before cooking.

I don't care what the blog says, wash your chicken before you cook it. Wash it in a colander holding the colander over the sink and rinsing it well.

They didn't even rinse off the chicken. YUK!

Instead of worcestershire sauce, I would use teriyaki sauce. I'd also cut up the potatoes and put them in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Cooking poultry without first rinsing it may not be a health risk, since the bacteria will be destroyed by heat. Wowever, with that said, I still prefer to rinse poultry. The reason is this: During production, intestines are sometimes ruptured, and the fecal matter spills into the cavity of the bird. Although the poultry goes through a washing process, some of those contaminants can still be on the meat. True, it won't kill me to eat the animal's well-cooked body waste, but I prefer not to eat poultry "a la manure." Thanks, but I'll just make sure that I clean kitchen surfaces well, and I'll keep washing my poultry!

Frozen chicken is washed and prepped prior to freezing and selling. Using directly from frozen in a slow cooker provides no harmful effects in regards to bacteria or food poisoning. I have very rarely used fresh meat in my recipes, always frozen unless I am looking for the taste that browning provides. But this can all be subject to preference

I agree with noting the meat isn't cleaned or washed prior to placing in the slow cooker. I actually notice a lot of chefs DO NOT wash their meat before cooking. I don't get it.

The US Dept.of Agriculture has long mmaintained that it is not safe to clean chicken before cooking, because doing so splashes any bacteria all over the sink and counter. See here:
