Recipe Review: Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan

When I came across Monster Mama's post for Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan, I knew that I would be making it in the very near future.  In fact, I featured it on a Must Try Tuesday post.  I love when I can use my crock just makes getting dinner on the table on those hectic days, so much easier.  It also sounded like the perfect Sunday dinner.  After all, who doesn't love the smell of a cooked meal after getting home from church? 

What makes this recipe unique, in my opinion, is that you don't have to pan fry the chicken in the breading before adding it to the crock pot.  You simply dredge your uncooked breast in egg and bread crumbs and add it to the crock pot.  So super simple!

I made just a few changes to the recipe.  Instead of using a jar sauce, I used my roasted Roma tomatoes which made this dish out of the world good!  I also did not have mozzarella slices on hand so I used shredded.  I wish there was smell-a-vision!  My kids came in and out of the kitchen several times asking if dinner was ready because it smelled so good and they wanted the yummy!

I highly recommend this recipe to any and all...especially if you are looking for a hearty delicious meal that doesn't require a lot of time!

Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan
(adapted from recipe at Monster Mama)

3-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 c Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 egg beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 batch roasted Roma tomatoes (makes 6 cups, use more or less to your liking)

Drizzle olive oil all over bottom of the crock pot. In a medium bowl or shallow plate, beat egg. In another bowl or shallow plate, mix bread crumbs, spices and grated cheese together and set aside. Dip each chicken breast into egg and then dredge in your breadcrumb mixture, making sure to evenly coat all sides. Place coated chicken on the bottom of crock pot. Sprinkle mozzarella on top of the chicken and pour the roasted Roma tomatoes and sauce over the chicken breasts. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours.

Serve with over a bed of pasta.
