  1. I would love to make this recipe this weekend! Would pre-cooked chicken work, and would it be the same weight as noted in the recipe?
    Thank you!

    1. Yes you can use pre-cooked, but it is going to be a different weight! I used 3 chicken breasts for this recipe so you can just use 3 cooked breasts 🙂
