Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan - $5 Meal

On our road to keep meals inexpensive here is another $5 Meal.  I found this Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan on Full Bellies, Happy Kids website.  As you all know I love my slow cooker and this was a easy one to throw together and let it go during the day and it was ready when the boys came home.  I believe I was right around the $5 mark so it was a budget friendly one!

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs (**I toasted a 2 pieces of bread and put in my ninja)
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
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.

** As always I suggest you use a crockpot liner.  They are around $2.50 for a box of 4 and so worth the time and money it would cost to scrub and let you pot sit over night soaking.  All my spices and noodles I buy in my bulk section to keep cost down. **

Hope you have a wonderful day!  What is on your menu tonight?
