Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan

  • Cooking Time:

    7 hours
  • Servings:



4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 T olive oil
1 egg
sliced mozzarella cheese (can also use shredded)
Spaghetti sauce (26 oz or more)
canned or fresh mushrooms, sliced

Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite “healthier” Italian dishes.  Carb-concious crockers can omit the bread crumbs and instead just dredge through the herbs & cheese.  If you do this, though, be sure to increase the amount of herbs and cheese accordingly.
NOTE: To prevent the bread crumbs on bottom of the chicken from getting soggy, use an insert like this one.

  1. Pour olive oil into the bottom of a slow cooker and coat the bottom well using a paper towel.
  2. Beat the egg in a medium bowl.
  3. Combine bread crumbs, seasonings and the parmesan cheese and place in a shallow dish.
  4. Dip the chicken into the egg and then lightly dredge into the bread crumb mix to coat both sides.
  5. Place the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  6. Place one slice of cheese on each chicken breast.
  7. Combine pasta sauce and mushrooms the pour over top of the chicken breast pieces.
  8. Cover. Cook on Low for 7 hours (8 hours if you are using frozen chicken)
  9. Serve with angel hair pasta and crusty french bread.

Happy Crocking!

I hope your nutrition information is for all four servings, not for one serving as stated. 16,000 mg of sodium??? Even divided by 4, that’s a heck of a lot. Over 900 calories??? Please give the amount per serving. Thanks.


What did you use to calculate the Nutrition information? how many servings is this set for?

Looking at the nutrition facts that accompany the Chicken Parm recipe; numbers look really high and would like verification that they are calculated for the entire recipe rather than serving size?

Substitute eggplant and you have eggplant parmesan


I am looking to make this and wanted to make sure of something. Does the breaded chicken become crispy?


I just want to know if I can cook this on high for a shorter time? Thank you. I love your site!!!


I really appreciate you sharing your recipes! However, I was skeptical about this recipe….chick parm is supposed to be somewhat crispy. Your picture makes the chicken look a bit crispy. My results were what I expected. 🙁 I followed the directions….mostly, I did add additional seasoning to the chicken, the beaten egg, and the breadcrumb mixture. I did use fresh mushrooms. However, my chicken was a dry (almost shredded) soggy mess. It did taste really good, but I’m guessing I either did something wrong, or the outside of the chicken never gets even somewhat crispy. Please understand, I’m totally NOT… Read more »

Love your site! One question when I tapped “like this one” I was sent to “about:blank”.
NOTE: To prevent the bread crumbs on bottom of the chicken from getting soggy, use an “insert like this one.”
I really hate soggy anything and I’m interested in what the insert you were talking about is.

What kind of insert are you talking about using to keep the bread crumbs from getting soggy?


Hi! What is the amount of time to cook it on the high setting?


Just made this for dinner. Absolutely LOVED it! So easy and so delicious. I am about to trawl your website for something for tomorrow!
