Slow Cooker: Chicken Parmesan

chicken parm from crock pot

Definitely not the most beautiful thing in the world, but oh so delicious!

So, I have to admit my recent obsession for the slow cooker.  I have seriously fallen in love with it and there are a few reasons why.  However, I will save that for a different post.  We went over to my friends house for dinner two weeks ago and she made chicken parm in the crock pot.  It is DELICIOUS!  I decided to make it too.  I did modify it (of course) to fit phase 3 of the South Beach Diet.  She got the recipe from crockpot365 dot blogspot dot com.

Here is what you need:

This is what you need for chicken parm in the crock pot!


  • It calls for 2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, but I used 6
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (I made my own 100% whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 t Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 t black pepper
  • 1/4 t kosher salt
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 beaten egg
  • sliced mozzarella cheese
  • favorite jarred marinara sauce (I used hunts garlic and herb in the can because there is no sugar)
  • spread the 1 T 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

I did an assembly line.

  • 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

Ready to cook in crock pot!

  • 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 (although I would never recommend putting frozen chicken in the crock pot)
  • Serve with pasta (I didn’t because of my crazy obsession without too much grain)
I thought it was delicious.  I would totally make it for my husband and myself over and over again.  However, it isn’t the best looking dish in the world.  I probably wouldn’t serve it for a formal dinner, but it was so good!
