Crockpot Chicken Parmesan
5 chicken breasts, cut into strips (I cut each breast into 3 strips)
1 T. olive oil
8oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 green pepper, cut into chunks
1 onion, cut into wedges
2-3 small zucchinis, cut into chunks
1 jar pasta sauce
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 bay leaves
Hot cooked pasta
Heat oil in a large skillet. Brown chicken on both sides; set aside. *Note: chicken does not need to be cooked through, just browned on the outside.
In a medium bowl combine pasta sauce, basil, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and parmesan cheese; set aside.
Layer veggies in the bottom of a large crockpot. Next, add chicken and pour sauce mixture on top. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and add the bay leaves right on top. Cover and cook on Low 5-6 hours or High for 3-4 hours.
Before serving discard bay leaves. Serve over hot pasta.
Makes about 6-8 servings
*I have substituted eggplant for the zucchini before and it turned out great!
