am going to make this can I put it all in a pot and put in oven to cook or does it have to be a pan?

Hi Tasha

Yes, it can be cooked in the oven, which would probably take 1 hour. Then add the cannellini beans and continue cooking for a further 30 minutes until chicken is cooked.

Hope this helps :)

Reply from Food in a Minute Team

Hi Daphne, thanks for your question. Yes this recipe can be cooked in the crock pot. We would suggest reducing the water to ½ cup and cooking for approximately 4-5 hours. We hope this helps.
