We had an italian night over at our house last night. And one bite of this and it was an instant favorite! I love chicken parmesan but hate all of the hassle of making it. This chicken parmesan recipe was so EASY to throw together and it tasted amazing!

The breading on it was so delicious and the chicken just shredded apart because it was cooked perfectly. I swear that everything is always better in a crockpot. I also served garlic parmesan pull-apart bread as a side. This meal was a winner!

  1. I’ve been using this recipe for years and love it, thank you! Has anyone tried it in the Instant Pot? If so, what setting and for how long did you cook it? Thanks in advance!
