Can I Use Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts Instead Of Thighs?
If you don’t want to use boneless skinless chicken thighs in this recipe but want to use chicken breasts instead you can easily substitute them. Because chicken breasts tend to cook a little faster and can dry out if over cooked I suggest that you reduce the cooking time by 1 hour regardless if you are cooking this recipe on HIGH heat or LOW heat. Then, check the internal temperature of the chicken meat with a meat thermometer and then cooking longer only if the chicken is not the proper temperature (165° F Or 74° C). The cooking time will vary depending on your individual slow cooker.
Can I Add Other Things To This Chicken Recipe?
Can I Use Something Else Besides Heavy Whipping Cream?
To lighten this dish up a little bit you can use fat-free half and half, regular half and half or even whole milk. However the sauce won’t be quite as creamy.
