  • 1/4 teaspoons - crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • 1/4 teaspoons - freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 cups - shredded mozzarella cheese or small chunks of fresh mozzarella

    You can make this with frozen chicken breasts if cooking on low, though it will most likely take the full 8 hours to cook. I recommend thawing the frozen chicken at room temperature the morning before making.
