I used frozen chicken breasts. You would just need to lengthen the cooking time by a little. My slow cooker seems to cook faster than the recipe so I didn't need to adjust the time by much, though.

Did you make it with frozen chicken, or did you defrost first? Thanks.

Found this recipe this morning, threw all the ingredients in my slow cooker, and had it for dinner. It was wonderful and my husband, who likes anything spicy, really liked it, too! I didn't have tomato sauce so I substituted tomato paste with a little water to clean out the can and it worked just as well. Also, when I served it, I added the chopped fresh cilantro but also sprinkled grated taco cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Yes, that added a few more calories but the extra flavors were worth it. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I will make it again!
