I was making up a bunch of recipes, so I did some adjusting to this recipe so we didn’t have quite so many servings. If you need more servings, you can double this recipe and make it in a larger crock pot. You will just want to adjust your cook time and watch it closely the first time you make it.
I have made this recipe twice. The first time, I used a 6-quart crock pot. This was NOT the correct size for the portions I had. It ended up turning the pecans black because I used the wrong size of crock pot. (I was going to take a picture for you to show you what NOT to do, but Michael ate the last chicken breast before I could get a picture! It still tasted alright, but it didn’t look so pretty.) So if you are using the exact recipe below, use a 3-4 quart crock pot. I used my 2.5-quart crock pot and it worked perfectly. Now, if you are doubling the recipe, then you can use a 5-6 quart crock pot.
I used three chicken breasts the first time and two the second time. The reason for this is because the first ones were smaller than the ones that I used the second time. Use your best judgement. If you have huge chicken breasts, two will do. If they aren’t quite so big, then go ahead and use three.
As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
