  1. Hi, I would like to use chicken breasts instead of thighs. As with other chicken recipes of yours do I reduce the cooking time on low by an hour (5 hours to 4 hours)? Many thanks

    1. Hello, yes you can use chicken breast, yes just reduce cooking time to 5 hours and it will be perfect! Enjoy x

  2. You’ve done it again! Great tasty and simple recipe loved by the three meat eaters. Will definitely be batching this one – thank you xx

    1. Hello!
      Can’t wait to cook this but does the recipe need chicken thighs bone in and skin on or skinless and boneless?
      Thanks!
      Lucy

    1. No it isn’t but you could reduce or just take out the harissa to make suitable for your toddler!

    1. You add it just before the end of the cooking time so it thickens up the sauce. Hope that helps!

  3. Hello! Loving all your recipes! Can I ask if you are substituting chicken thighs for chicken breasts how many chicken breasts for a portion for 4 people? I was going to do 1 chicken breast per person but thinking that might make a huge portion with the additional ingredients? Many Thanks

    1. Brilliant to hear thanks Yvonne! I would say around 2-3 large chicken breasts would work well, you can cut them in half so everyone has their own piece. Hope that helps!
