I was skeptical of this recipe. Breaded and in the crock pot don’t normally go together. I tried it anyways and was pleasantly surprised. I knew there was breading so I was on the look out to see if it held up and it did pretty well. Simple to put together.
- 1lb boneless skinless chicken cutlets
- 1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
- 1/2 tbsp italian seasoning
- 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
- 1/4 t black pepper
- 1/4 t kosher salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- favorite jarred marinara sauce
Spread the 1 tbso of olive oil into the bottom of your crockpot.
Beat the egg with a fork in a separate bowl.
Mix the bread crumbs with the seasonings and the Parmesan cheese in another separate dish.
Dip the chicken into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture, coating both sides with crumbs, cheese and seasonings.
Place the chicken breast pieces in the bottom of the crockpot.
Layer mozzarella cheese on top, depending on how much cheese you like.
Cover chicken and cheese with entire jar of marinara sauce.
Close lid and cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3.
Serve with your favorite pasta.
