Chicken Parmesan is my comfort food. I love Italian food, and this is one of my favorite dishes. It translates very nicely to a crockpot, and gives the chef the opportunity to get out of the kitchen, and the house.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I use gluten free bead 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 beaten egg
sliced mozzarella cheese
1 (26-ounce bottle) favorite jarred marinara sauce
--spread the 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the bottom of your crockpot stoneware insert
--whip 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 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.
Serve with your favorite pasta. We chose penne brown rice pasta from Trader Joe's.
This tasted great, was really easy, and presented well. This is definitely a dish you can serve to company without hesitation.
