Crock Pot Chicken Parm: A Healthy and Easy Substitute for Traditional Chicken Parmesan
I love to find recipes to make for my hubby that are easy to quickly throw together in the crock pot in the morning and taste delicious when I serve them at dinnertime. We’ve also been trying lately to eat healthier since Taylor is trying to lose weight. Needless to say, I’m thrilled when I can find a recipe that combines the ease of the crock pot and is healthy and tasty. This recipe for crock pot chicken parm definitely meets all of those qualifications!
I made this last night for my hubby and father-in-law and we gobbled up every bit of it! I put it in the crock pot (with my Slow Cooker Liners of course) after church and didn’t have to touch it again until I put it over pasta to serve it.
So here’s how I make my crock pot chicken parm:
I put two chicken breasts in the bottom of my crock pot. I sprinkle the basil and oregano directly on the chicken. Then I add one can of diced tomatoes and make sure the chicken breasts are completely covered so they stay moist and don’t burn.
This can be cooked on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6 hours depending on what fits best in your schedule. When you’re ready to eat, cook your pasta and serve the chicken and tomatoes on top of it with some mozzarella cheese. Last night I used whole wheat linguine since it’s a healthy alternative to regular spaghetti.
