  • 4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken I use two breasts and two thighs to please everyone at my table
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup panko crumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick Italian Seasoning Or, make your own: 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried rosemary and 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ lbs sliced mozzarella cheese
  • 3-4 cups red sauce


  • Mix panko, ¼ cup Parmesan and spices together in one bowl
  • Place eggs in separate bowl and beat
  • Place one piece of chicken at a time into the beaten egg and make sure it is well coated - then press egg drenched piece of chicken into the panko crumb mixture and turn to coat with crumbs on all sides
  • Place each breaded piece of chicken into the slow cooker
  • Lay one slice of mozzarella cheese on top of each piece of breaded chicken
  • Fully cover all cheese-topped chicken with marinara sauce
  • Place lid on pot and cook 4 - 6 hours on low.
  • About ½ an hour before serving, sprinkle remaining grated Parmesan cheese over top of sauce and finish cooking; allowing cheese to melt.


The best way to determine when your chicken is ready is by using a meat thermometer. Chicken must reach an internal temperature of 165° to be considered properly cooked and safe for consumption.
