Crockpot Chicken Parmesan

For the last few days, this has consumed my life.......

The Sixth Annual Garage Sale.

It was quite the success.  But after two days of selling it up, I was asleep on the couch (with a migraine) by 7:00 Saturday evening.

I woke up feeling much better.  Then I remembered my poor, neglected blog.  And I figured I'd give it some attention.

Since my thrifting efforts had been cast aside due to garage sale preparedness, I thought I'd share another recipe that blew our socks off recently..........

 Crockpot Chicken Parmesan
(original source)

2 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup of Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
1/4 teas. pepper
1/4 teas. Kosher salt
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 egg
mozzarella cheese
jar of marinara sauce

Pour the olive oil in the crockpot, coating the bottom.  Beat the egg in a separate dish.  Mix the Parmesan, S & P, and bread crumbs in another dish.  Dip the chicken into the egg, then coat all sides of the chicken with the bread crumb mixture.  Place the chicken in the bottom of the crockpot.  Sprinkle mozzarella over the chicken.  Pour the marinara over everything.  Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or low for 6 to 7.  Serve over pasta, and sprinkle with more cheese!

I was skeptical, but willing to try this recipe anyway.  I wasn't sure how the bread crumb mixture would work in a crockpot.  

It was insane.  The mister loved it too. 

Leftovers were even great.

This recipe fits all of my criteria.......very easy, super tasty, and since it's a crockpot dinner, minimal cleanup!  I also realized that I usually have these ingredients on hand all the time!

And if you don't have to run to the store for ingredients, then it gets double points in my book!

Now, one more nap and I think I'll be fully recovered from the garage sale extravaganza.

  1. Just pinned this! Thanks for sharing. Visiting from "Make Ahead Meals" blog hop.

  2. Okay, we've GOT to remedy this pattern you're beginning to display. Garage sales and migraines do not go hand in hand. Next year, we'll do on-site pedicures, facials, or massages. Something's gotta give, yo!

  6. our little town in kansas city is getting ready to have a big city-wide garage sale and I'm trying to get my butt motivated ... but it seems like a whole like of work right now. I know it would totally be worth it though, I love getting rid of things. p.s. you sold a picnic table?! :)
