Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan

This is what's for dinner tonight at our house.


2 Smart Chicken boneless breasts, cut in half horizontally
1 jar of Bertoli Marinara Sauce
3 cloves minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
Grated fresh Parmesan cheese

With a sharp knife, slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally.  Brown on both sides.  (I use my panini sandwich grill to do this).

In a small bowl combine 1/2 of the jar of Marinara sauce, minced garlic and Italian Seasoning.

Place chicken breasts into Crock Pot and pour sauce over them.

Cook on high for 2-3 hours or until chicken is tender.  Top with grated Parmesan cheese and continue cooking until cheese melts.

Although I enjoy cooking from scratch, the convenience and quality of jarred Marinara sauce makes it a pantry staple in my house. 

And, if you've never tried Smart Chicken and it's available in your area, you should!  The only drawback to the Smart Chicken is that the boneless breast portions are huge!  It's the only brand of chicken I will use.  It's hormone and antibiotic free and tastes better than any other brand available in our area.
