Notes

This recipe was developed using this exact type of frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I can only guarantee the results using this type. Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the chicken breasts you use. I suggest using a meat thermometer to ensure doneness. It’s an easy way to get chicken cooked throughout without overcooking it.
