slow cooker & a frozen bird?

huruta | Nov 22, 2008 07:08 AM

Anyone tried to use a slow cooker to cook a frozen bird, say over low heat. Did it work well? Any tips? I have several whole chickens in my freezer and don't seem to use them because they take days to defrost in my fridge.

One supposedly faster option to defrost a whole bird is to soak the bird in water and change out the water until defrosted. Anyone have an estimate of how long this would take with an average 3.5 lb chicken, for example?
