Save time/effort and make everyone’s FAVORITE Italian dish in your crockpot. You can also freeze half for another meal!

Is it me or is it way too hot to put the stove on?

Because right now, it’s 96 degrees F.

And I’m not about to make my house any hotter than it already is.

Butters will begin to sweat in that sweater of his.

So instead, let’s make this crockpot chicken parmesan.

The chicken gets cooked low and slow for 4 hours, yielding the juiciest chicken of all.

Plus, Butters gets to keep his cardigan sweater on.

We all win.

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes

  • 1 pound penne
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Place chicken into a 6-qt slow cooker.
