For this recipe do you use frozen or thawed chicken breast?!
Hi Jenny, I used thawed chicken but frozen can be used. You will have a little more water and it will take longer to cook but it can be done!
I made this for Sunday lunch yesterday and it was a hit! I did add a 1/2 cup of broth and I was glad, just the right amount of sauce for our liking. Lots of flavor, and easy clean up! This pin is going in the "keeper" folder. : )
So glad you liked it!! Slow cooker meals are the best for Sunday lunch!
This sounds yummy. For 2 pounds of chicken, that doesn't seem like very much liquid. Is this recipe complete? I know the chicken juices will add some liquid as it cooks, but I'd hate to leave my house for 5 hours to come back to a burnt dinner. Just want to double check (not trolling!). Thanks
Hi Meredith, Thanks for asking! With the chicken and the liquid from the soy sauce and honey was enough for us. But I get what you are saying. You can add 1/2 - 1 cup of chicken broth to it if you are worried and I am sure it will taste just fine like that and extra juice is never a bad thing!
I hope you enjoy the recipe and let me know how it turns out for you!!
