Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan

Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan
Don't let that bad picture fool you - this recipe is delicious! It is simple to make, and it does taste like pan made chicken parm! But all it takes is a few minutes of prep (no pre cooking!) and a couple of hours in your slow cooker. I actually made this one as written! SHOCKING I know. lol But with seasoned breadcrumbs and real Parmesan cheese, I didn't even need to change the spices. Ok, I did sprinkle the leftover breadcrumb mixture on the top of the chicken before cooking, as you can see below. But that is it! The leftover cooked sauce I used on pasta. Yummy!!!

I used 3 chicken breasts in this recipe - 4 would be perfect

Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan 
(this is NOT my recipe, but i don't know where it is from!)

2 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 t black pepper
 1/4 t salt
1 TBSP olive oil
1 egg, beaten
 sliced or shredded mozzarella cheese
favorite jarred marinara sauce

Spread the 1 TBSP of olive oil into the bottom of your crockpot.
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 5-6 hours or high for 3. Serve with your favorite pasta.
