Crock Pot Chicken Parmesean

This was a hit with the whole entire family. Yum.
(originally found here)

2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (I cut mine into strips, to make them into more reasonable serving sizes for the kids)
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 egg, beaten
4-6 slices mozzarella cheese
1 jar (28-ounces) favorite marinara sauce

Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the bottom of the crockpot stoneware.
In a medium bowl, beat egg. In second medium bowl, mix the bread crumbs, spices, and grated Parmesan cheese all together.

Dip chicken in beaten egg and then toss into bread crumb mixture to coat completely on both sides. Place chicken breasts on bottom of crockpot. Place a layer of mozzarella slices on top of breaded chicken breasts. Cover cheese layered chicken with entire jar of sauce.

Place lid of crockpot securely on and turn heat to LOW for 6-7 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours. Serve over cooked pasta of your choice.

mmm...this was good and easy. you don't need to cut it into strips, b/c it just shreds when it's all done (if you want it to, it stays intact too).

agree. that was the original cooks' remarks. but i'm not gonna cut it up when i make it again.

we really like this too, I recommend cooking it for a shorter time. I usually only do 2 breasts, so that probably makes a difference, and cook it for 3 hours on low. I'm sure everyones crockpot is different.

Also, I figured out calories, and my estimation is with sauce, this is 185 calories per serving. This is chicken plus sauce (not counting pasta). 2 breasts makes 4 servings for my family. Kelli have you figured this out? can you confirm?

oops, i forgot to calculate the mozz cheese, so it's actually 225 cals.
