Anyone know if you were to use boneless chicken breasts instead do you need to adjust anything, like the time and temp? Thanks! (I tend to buy the big bag of frozen chicken breasts rather than chicken pieces)

First time cooks! :-)

Drop pieces in bag means cut it up.

It is a whole Chicken? what about cuting it up first

Unlesss the recipe has been changed, the first ingredient says whole chicken, cut up. Is that confusing?

Very good very easy.
