Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan

Another week, another new slow cooker recipe, and I was pretty leery after the Orange Chicken of last week. My recipes with a slow cooker seem to either be incredibly fantastic or a fantastic disaster. This one was the rock-star new recipe of the rocked! Super easy to put together, and very yummy.

I am sharing this at The Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap, so stop over there for more recipes!

Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan
adapted from A Year of Crockpotting

2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg, beaten
sliced mozzarella cheese
Jar of marinara sauce

Spread the 1 T of olive oil into the bottom of your crockpot stoneware insert.

Beat the egg in a bowl. Combine the bread crumbs with the seasonings and Parmesan cheese in another separate shallow bowl or plate. Dip the chicken into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture, coating both sides with crumb mixture. Place the chicken breast pieces in the bottom of the crock. Layer 2-3 slices of mozzarella cheese on top. Cover with entire jar of marinara sauce.

Close lid and cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4. If your chicken is still frozen, it will take longer. Mine was 3 thawed chicken breasts and took about 5 hours on low.
