3. Add the chicken breasts to the bag, arranging them in a single layer.

4. Dump the honey, Dijon mustard, black pepper, salt, ground thyme, and water into the bag.

6. Seal the bag tightly, removing as much air as possible, and label it with the cooking instructions and date.

7. Place the bag in the freezer until you're ready to cook.

8. On the night before cooking, remove the bag from the freezer and place it in the refrigerator to thaw overnight.

9. In the morning, empty the contents of the bag into your crockpot and add the 1/2 c water.

10. Give everything a gentle stir to combine, then cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Chicken needs to have an internal temp of 165° to be considered done.***
