When my husband and I would eat out a lot, one or both of us would end up ordering Chicken Parmesan. We are hooked! I love how easy this recipe is to throw together and that you still get the same end result (plus your house smells fabulous all day while it simmers)!
Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Recipe:
(Recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking)
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 Tbl. olive oil
1 egg, beaten
sliced or shredded mozzarella cheese
favorite jarred marinara sauce (23 oz.)
Spread the olive oil into the bottom of your crockpot stoneware insert. Beat the egg with a fork in a separate bowl. Mix the bread crumbs with the seasonings and the Parmesan cheese in another separate dish. Dip the chicken into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture, coating both sides with crumbs, cheese and seasonings. Place the chicken breast pieces in the bottom of the crockpot. Layer 2-3 slices or 1-2 cups of mozzarella cheese on top, depending on how much cheese you like. Cover chicken and cheese with entire jar of marinara sauce. Close lid and cook on low for 4-5 hours or high for 2-3. Serve with your favorite pasta.
