Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan
Brandie @ The Country Cook
jar spaghetti sauce
boneless, skinless chicken breasts
(depending on how many will fit in your slow cooker)
Italian seasoned Panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper (to taste)
(about a teaspoon each)
shredded mozzarella cheese
(more if you prefer)
Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour in jar of spaghetti sauce.
Get out two shallow bowls.
In one bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Season with salt and pepper.
In a second bowl, mix together panko bread crumbs with garlic powder, oregano and basil.
In a large skillet, begin heating up the vegetable oil (over medium-high heat). You want to get your skillet very hot before adding chicken to it.
Dip each chicken breast into the milk mixture.
Then roll it around in the seasoned bread crumbs. Coat each breast one at a time.
Then add chicken to hot skillet. Continue with the rest of the chicken.
You aren't cooking them all the way through - just getting a good browning on each side. If necessary, add more oil to the pan.
After browning both sides, add chicken to the crock pot on top of the sauce.
Cover and cook on low for about 6-8 hours. Internal chicken temperature will be 165F degrees when finished.
About 10-15 minutes before serving, sprinkle each piece of chicken with shredded mozzarella cheese.
Cover again and allow cheese to melt. Serve over cooked spaghetti noodles.
About 30 minutes before this is ready, you'll want to start cooking the spaghetti noodles, if using.
Serve over cooked spaghetti with a crisp, green salad and some garlic bread.
