  1. Hi, what if I just want to make ONE chicken breast (probably a 200 gram chicken breast). So if I divide the recipe by 4…how long in the slow cooker?? Thnks.

  2. I made this today and it was great. I substituted sweet potatoes for the regular potatoes and used green beans instead of peas. My husband loved it too!
