This is a relatively simple recipe for making great chicken Parmesan at home. Goes great over angel hair pasta with a big piece of garlic bread, steamed broccoli, and a glass of Cabernet.

  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry breaded chicken breasts, 2 at a time, until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining butter and chicken breasts.

  • Layer chicken breasts in a slow cooker, covering each layer with marinara sauce.

  • Cook on low until flavors combine, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Place chicken breasts side-by-side in a baking dish, spooning additional sauce on top. Place 2 slices mozzarella cheese over each piece of chicken. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, and garlic powder on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

Tips

Substitute margarine for the butter if desired.

Leftovers are best reheated in the oven at 275 degrees F (135 degrees C) for about 15 to 20 minutes instead of microwaving.

Sprinkling the seasoning on top wasn't such a good idea. Cause I can't do it evenly so on some parts of the chicken it'd be flavorless & others I would get a mouthful of seasoning. I'd recommend mixing the seasoning into the sauce before you put it into the crockpot. That way it's evenly spread out. Read More

For the amount of time it took, I'd rather go with Chef John's recipe on this site. It takes about the same amount of time, and tastes much better. I appreciate the recipe but I won't be making it again. Read More

This was amazing!! I didn't have time to use crockpot so I followed all the steps and then baked in oven at 350 for about 45 minutes then added spices & cheese and baked for additional 15 minutes. I have a very picky family and we rarely ever eat leftovers. This recipe made enough for all of us to have a leftover for lunch the next day and surprisingly EVERYONE ate it all. Will make again! Thank you for sharing the recipe!! Read More

Chicken was very moist and it took very little time to prepare. I served it over noodles along with spinach salad. Huge hit! Read More

The only thing I changed is the number of eggs. Three eggs seemed like too many so I used two and I still had some leftovers after dredging. Read More

Crockpot recipes are supposed to be easy and save time. You might as well just skip the crockpot and do this in the oven. It takes less time. Read More

I made it in the oven in a tightly covered baking pan and slow cooker it at 240 for 4 hours. It was too much for my crock pot. Read More

This recipe has recently become one of my go-to dishes; I've made it twice in the last ten days! The first time I used canned marinara and the second I made fresh marinara for the sauce (recipe also found on AllRecipes). I also used whatever cheese I had on hand-- mozzarella the first time asiago the second. Both were great. With some roasted broccoli garlic bread and a bottle of cab this meal was wonderful.
