Crockpot Chicken Parmesean

This was the easiest and best chicken parm I have ever eaten. Normally, I shy away from chicken parm because the chicken tends to get too dry... but in the crockpot, the chicken was so moist it virtually fell apart.


Crockpot Chicken Parmesan - Adapted from the Crockpot Lady


  • 2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 C bread crumbs (I used 1 thick slice from our whole wheat bread)
  • 1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning (salt-free)
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • dash, salt
  • 1-2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/8 C milk
  • 1/2 - 1 C mozzarella cheese, shredded*
  • 2-4 C spaghetti sauce (we used our homemade)*
*use more if you use more chicken


Tear thick slice of bread into pieces; then place in a blender and grate it until you have fine bread crumbs.

Add Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings, and stir to combine.  Then, pour milk into another small bowl, and line up the chicken, bread crumbs and milk.

Dip the chicken in the milk, then in the bread crumbs and coat well.

Place the chicken into a crockpot that has been sprayed with olive oil.  Cover with freshly grated mozzarella cheese.

Top with spaghetti sauce.

Cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours. I cooked mine on low for roughly 4 hours, and then on high for about another hour. The chicken was 180 degrees, and tender as can be :)

Boil pasta about 20 minutes before you're ready to eat....we used whole wheat spaghetti noodles.

Serve with green veggies, and fococcia bread for a lovely dinner.

This is such an easy dinner - one we love!

  16. This looks delicious! Adding it to my menu this week.

  17. Made this last night....You were right, the chicken is very juicy. We just had trouble with the breading. It fell of in the crockpot. Has this happened to you?

  18. @Cal --

    Yes, our breading falls off too -- gets wrapped up in the sauce, which is delicious. For added crunch, I often sprinkle a little more bread crumbs over the top, just before serving.

    Oh, and the last time I made it, I reserved the mozzarella cheese, sprinkling the cheese over the top of the entire dish, just a few minutes before serving. I really enjoyed the yummy, melty cheese on the top, coupled with the crunchy panko bread crumbs.

  19. Making this dish today and I'm so excited to try it. Thanks for another great idea!
