If cooking frozen chicken breasts you’ll need to add 3-5 minutes of cook-time depending on the size of your breasts. If they are below 2.5” thick opt for 3 minutes, and if they’re above, 5 minutes.
For the Crockpot or other slow cookers, sauté the sauce in another pot if you don’t have a sauté option. Then, you can cook the chicken for 4 hours on low or 2 hours on high.
For the stovetop, use a large pot with a lid. The cooking time will be about 45 minutes.
Oh, and if you have a stovetop pressure cooker, you can follow this recipe exactly as stated.
