Hi - this sounds good. I only wonder if you are using bone-in or boneless chicken breasts? Or does it matter?

I usually only use boneless but not easy to find a "bag" but of course I can find 6 - 8 in package.

You also do not mention about skinless? Yes or no?

Thanks

I'm not the original poster of this recipe, but I think I know the answer to the questions. In some areas, boneless/skinless chicken breasts can commonly be found in the freezer section in 3 pound bags. I think this is what the poster is using. The same weight of boneless/skinless breasts bought in a tray could certainly work. Look around for the bags of frozen breasts to see if they are available in your area... they are handy because one can take out only as much as needed at a time, since they are IQF (individually quick frozen) so they are separate and not all lumped up together as happens when one freezes a tray of breasts. In my area, they (and the boneless/skinless breast tenders) often go on sale at a cheaper price than the packaged breasts in the fresh meat counter.

As for this recipe, it sounds delicious! I do something similar to make Mexican style crockpot chicken, but I do not use cheese because my daughter doesn't enjoy melted cheese with her meat. I use Rotel diced tomatoes with green chiles instead of salsa, a can of cream of chicken soup, and a sprinkling of taco seasoning.
