I’ve had chicken parmesan meals and they’ve never been my favorite. Not a dislike exactly…. more of a, “There are so many better things to eat out there!!” I had this recipe pinned for a while though and finally decided to give it a try, just for something different. I was most pleasantly surprised! It was quite tasty and couldn’t have been easier to throw together!! This was edited from Thriving Home.
- about 6 – 8 frozen boneless chicken thighs
- poultry seasoning
- 1 jar (28 oz) marinara sauce
- shredded mozzarella cheese
- grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 – 2 tablespoons olive oil
- whole wheat spaghetti noodles
Place frozen chicken thighs in your crock-pot, season liberally with poultry seasoning, and cook on low 7 – 8 hours or high 4 – 5 hours or cooked through. Shred with a couple of forks.
At supper time, preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease a 13″ x 9″ baking dish, and place shredded chicken in. Pour marina sauce on top and mix it together evenly. Sprinkle (or dump heavily) mozzarella cheese all over the top until it’s well covered. Sprinkle some parmesan over the top of that.
Combine bread crumbs, seasonings, and olive oil in a small bowl. Sprinkle it around on top of the cheeses. Pop it in the oven and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or lightly browned and bubbly.
While the chicken is baking, cook some whole wheat noodles. Serve the chicken parmesan on top of the noodles and be amazed at how quickly this tasty dish came together! 😀
