hi, great recipe. Please can you tell me if I could also use chicken breast instead of thighs? Also, if this were to be used in a pressure cooker would that work too? Thanks

Videos can be helpful but I still prefer a list of ingredients, prep and cook times, how many servings, nutritional info and the ability to save to my recipes. Is this 4 servings?

Should the slow cooker be on low or high for this?
