But this is even easier. Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Casserole. And it's so good!
Now if you want to use jarred sauce, be my guest (but make sure to use about 28 oz.). But I prefer using crushed tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper. The flavors end up making a really tasty sauce, especially with the chicken cooking in it.
So anyway – just cook the chicken in the sauce, shred it, and then add the pasta (I recommend something like penne). Now the pasta will take longer to cook than if you were following the directions on the box. But a pasta like penne would take about 20 minutes to become al dente.
Once the pasta is done, top with cheese and then close the lid. It will melt in about 10 minutes.
Ok – now for my favorite part… for any good chicken parmesan recipe, you will need a bit of crunch, right? The best chicken parmesan always has a nice crispy breadcrumb crust on the outside. So to achieve that, we will make a crispy breadcrumb topping. Simply fry some breadcrumbs in oil for a few minutes, and that's all it takes.
Use this awesome breadcrumb topping when you serve it. Super good.
