quick crockpot question

Fruityflavors | Jun 30, 2015 10:24 AM

I know that the food safety fanatics advise against frozen meats in a crockpot, but I've shoved frozen chicken in the slow cooker and let it cook on low for 5-8 hours many times with no ill effects.

Today, for some reason, I'm having second thoughts--I have semi-frozen chicken breasts that I have doused with sauce and individually foil wrapped and tucked into the crock pot along with foil-wrapped sweet potatoes. Can anyone tell me whether there any reason why the addition of foil-wrapping would increase the chances of some sort of foodborne illness? Am I just overthinking things?
