    How many does this serve typically?

    • LA says:

      It makes a lot! I usually make it for two people and I always have a ton left over that we can use for dinner and lunches throughout the week!

    Are you suppose to cook the chicken first?

    • LA says:

      Hi Linsey! You don’t have to cook the chicken first – just throw it in the crock pot and it will cook in there. Enjoy!
