Yesterday I found a link to a great slow cooker recipe blog and decided to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time—use my crock pot.
I found a recipe that I had all of the ingredients for (MIRACLE!) and cooked dinner at noon! SOOO COOL!
Here’s how it went.
Recipe: Chicken Parmesean
Reposted from A Year of Slow Cooking
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1/2 t Italian seasoning
- 1/4 t black pepper
- 1/4 t salt
- 1 T olive oil
- 1 beaten egg
- sliced mozzarella cheese
- favorite jarred marinara sauce
The recipe is really simple. Just mix up your breading, beat the egg, then dip the defrosted, rinsed and dried chicken breasts in the egg followed by the bread crumbs then place in the crock pot (which already has the olive oil in the bottom). Top with the mozzarella slices and empty the jar of sauce on top. Then set to low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours and voila! Yummy, tender, juicy chicken parmesan!
This dish turned out really nice! Matt inhaled it, so I think that says something. Best of all, this was sooooo simple to make! And I loved coming home from picking Matt up from work and having dinner ready to go. All I had to do was boil some pasta!
I think this marks a new chapter in my culinary adventures! I should probably invest in a more modern crockpot though. Specifically one that has a removable stoneware insert. Soooo much easier for cleaning!
Anyone have any good crockpot recipes they’d like to recommend?
