I get a lot of requests for more slow cooker recipes and since I’ve been craving Italian food a lot lately, I decided to combine the two! I’ve slow cooked chicken breasts in various sauces before and they’ve always turned out well, so I figured Chicken Parmesan was the perfect next step. Who doesn’t love seasoned, breaded chicken smothered in marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese? As with all the best slow cooker recipes, this is very easy to make. The prep time is less than 10 minutes and then your work is done until you’re ready to eat! I served this with a side of wheat spaghetti and pasta sauce, but you could definitely serve it with vegetables or a salad if you want to get some greens in. Some days you just don’t want to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen, and this is the perfect recipe for one of those days.
- 1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 2 T flour
- 4 (4 oz each) raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 lb total)
- 2 egg whites
- 1 ½ cups marinara sauce
- ¾ cup 2% shredded Mozzarella cheese
