This slow cooker chicken parmesan recipe is great for weeknight dinners. Now that slow cooker season, aka fall, is approaching, this is a Crockpot dinner you’ll want to pin for your meal plan.
Full disclosure: the noodles are made separately. You cook the chicken in the slow cooker and serve over pasta.
Chicken Parmesan in the Slow Cooker
The end of summer is always a little bittersweet, isn’t it? On one hand it’s kind of a bummer. The weather gets yucky, days get shorter, time speeds up. But, on the other… Kids. They Go. Back. To. School! (that noise was me, clapping. Sorry, not sorry) That’s where this Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Recipe saves the day.
With one kid having after school activities. Another having Band rehearsals. The youngest needs to be picked up from scouts. The very last thing I’m going to want to do after playing taxi is start making dinner. But since I started this Chicken Parmesan way earlier in the day, I don’t have to. Go me! I’ll share!
Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Recipe
The beauty of this Chicken Parmesan Recipe is it's not only easy. Set it and forget it. But, it's also not breaded. So, it's healthier, and less work! We totally get to skip all that!
- 4 chicken breasts, skinless, boneless
- 1 can diced tomatoes, 14.5 oz can, I used the kind with Italian Seasoning
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 3 tbs red wine, good, dry, if you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it, blech
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp sugar
- salt & pepper, to taste
- In your slow cooker, combine all ingredients save for the cheeses. Add a touch more salt and pepper and all cheese.
- Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours.
- Check to make sure chicken is cooked completely. *170. Because, raw chicken. Eeww.
- Cover and cook for another 20 minutes until the cheese is a creamy, melty pot of yum.
- Serve over lightly buttered noodles. Family mealtime my friends! Enjoy!
