Tips for Making Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan:
Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan may be one of the easiest recipes to make, it doesn’t always come out perfectly beautiful though because the chicken is so tender it shreds when you pull it out of the slow cooker; however, it is extremely tasty!
One thing to note is that you can use either boneless, skinless chicken thighs or chicken breast. Personally, I feel like chicken breast dries out rather quickly in the slow cooker, so I typically will choose chicken thighs.
Before the chicken goes into the slow cooker, you will go ahead and bread it with breadcrumbs and a cheese mixture.
Then, the chicken will be topped with your favorite marinara sauce. I use Prego Meat Sauce to top over the chicken, but you can use any variety that you prefer.
Once the cooking time is up and the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165*F, you can add sliced mozzarella right on top and let it just melt onto the chicken.
Once that’s done simply serve with a salad or over your favorite pasta.
Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan is a fabulous meal to set it and forget it…then eat up!
