SLOW COOKER CHICKEN PARMESAN – A FAVORITE ITALIAN CLASSIC MADE EASY, WHILE TASTING JUST AS DELICIOUS.
I love Chicken Parmesan. Especially at our family’s favorite to-go-to place – Carrabba’s. They have a dish where it’s crusted Parmesan chicken with arugula and it is my absolute favorite and it comes with so much food that I have leftovers for the next days lunch. PERK!
What I love about Chicken Parmesan is all the bread crumbs – and so of course I had to incorporate them into the recipe. And friends, you can never have too much cheese – am I right? My son, Madden and I love red sauce aka Spaghetti Sauce. So I love that this dish is baked in sauce. You could easily substitute the canned tomato sauce in this recipe for jarred spaghetti sauce – just be sure to adjust the seasonings then too.
I have tried Chicken Parmesan in so many different ways – like with Baked Chicken Parmesan Sticks. The kids always love these and I do too because they are so simple.
My husband loves mushrooms and so when my friend Rachel made them like a stuffed chicken parm I knew this would be a hit with him. This Chicken Parmesan Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms recipe is divine. But on a busy night I am more tempted to try out something like this Chicken Parmesan Pasta Skillet, easy and delicious. So whether you make Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches or this Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan you will love that having this Italian classic has never been so easy or tasted so good. Enjoy friends.

My favorite kitchen items I used to make this SLOW COOKER CHICKEN PARMESAN.
Knives: A good set of kitchen knives is essential for preparing any meal. I just recently invested in some Cutco knives and I have not regretted it one bit. These are hands down my favorite knives I have owned.
Cutting Board: For me this is a kitchen must-have and kitchen counter saver. While we have counter tops you can cut on, I find that this extra step will preserve my counter. I also find that using a cut board makes for less clean up afterwards. I love this cutting board because it has a groove all the way around the board prevent juices from running all of the counter.
Mixing Bowls: I love having a variety of sizes of mixing bowls. From small to large, I find that having at least 3 bowls of different sizes has been an essential in my kitchen. I prefer Pyrex because of the durability.
