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:

The chicken will be rendered safe through cooking.

this was delicious, and we thoroughly enjoyed the aroma of this dish as it was wafting in the kitchen while it slow cooked

Great Recipe .... Frozen or not! Made it many times and use both Breasts and thighs at the same time. Ummm

I would definitely wash chicken. And I would try unfrozen and lower cooking time.

I tried this last weekend and it was super. Used skinless, boneless chicken breasts and left them whole to eat. Will for sure be fixing this again and may cut up meat and eat as sandwiches.
