Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan


I've really been on a crock pot cooking kick lately and spent quite a bit of time online looking for yummy crock pot recipes I should try and stumbled upon this one.  Chicken Parmesan is a favorite in our household so you can imagine my relief when I saw that I could just throw it all into the crock pot and it would be ready when I got home.  

What You Need:

  • 2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 t Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 t black pepper
  • 1/4 t kosher salt
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 beaten egg
  • sliced mozzarella cheese
  • favorite jarred marinara sauce
What To Do:
  • Spread the oil on the bottom of the crock pot
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese and the bread crumbs
  • In a different bowl, whip the egg with a fork
  • Dip the chicken into the whipped egg, then dip it in the breadcrumb mix, making sure to cover the entire chicken breast
  • Place the breaded chicken breasts in the crock pot
  • Cover each breast with 2-3 slices of cheese.  If you do not have slices, shredded mozzarella cheese will do the trick
  • Pour the entire jar of marinara sauce on top of the chicken breasts
  • Cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4
  • Once the chicken is ready, serve over your favorite pasta and enjoy!
This recipe, while delicious was not my favorite.  I found that if cooked too long, the sauce had an overall burned taste which made the chicken less enjoyable to eat.  If I had to choose between this or the Healthy Baked Chicken Parmesan, I would choose the Healthy Baked Chicken Parmesan, but that does not mean I will not be making it again because it is simple and tasty.
