Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan ~ by Sarah

Why, hello, Richelderfers' Recipes!  Long time no post!  

Tonight I made something worthy of posting, so I want to make sure I can find the recipe again in the future.  I wanted to make something in crock pot, so after searching Pinterest for awhile, I found something that I thought everyone in the family would enjoy.  And we definitely did!  This was super good and super easy.

Here is the recipe and directions and then I'll give my tips:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 slices mozzarella cheese
24 oz jar marinara sauce

Pour olive oil in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place beaten egg in a shallow bowl. Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan, oregano, garlic powder, pepper, and salt in a second shallow bowl. Dip chicken breasts in egg and then in bread crumb mixture, coating both sides. Place breaded chicken in the crockpot and top each with a slice of mozzarella. Pour marinara sauce over chicken. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

**My two cents:
  • Four hours in the crock pot was too long because the chicken basically fell all apart and was a little shredded when I pulled it out.  I'm not sure how to remedy this.  Maybe less time?  I think next time I make it I will use the crumb recipe and then bake it in the oven and will add the sauce before serving.  (First I'll simmer the sauce to heat it up.)
  • It's almost not enough sauce, so next time I'll probably use two jars.
  • I served it all over spaghetti noodles and it made it even better!
P.S. I can't post a picture because I didn't take one and the website I got it from won't let me steal theirs.  Here's the link to the site if you want to see it:
