This recipe was originally shared back in 2014. Since then, we’ve had it for dinner about one million times and seriously adore it.

It’s usually made in my crock pot, but, since, acquiring my instant pot, sometimes, I make it in that too.It just depends on my daily schedule.

A few notes:

  • Yes, you can use partially frozen chicken breasts!
  • I used 1.25 lbs of boneless chicken breasts. This should be approx 3-4 medium size breasts.
  • For the crock pot version: In the past, I have used boneless chicken tenders for this recipe and cooked the same amount of time. However, I haven’t used them in the instant pot yet, so, can’t say what the cook time would be for them.
