Why this parmesan chicken recipe works
I always see slow cooking a meal as a major perk. Not only does it prevent you from having to stand over a stove but it can also make things taste better. While the slow cooker cooks up this parmesan chicken dinner, you can tackle getting a few things done.
This one-pot, dump-and-go meal is definitely something to consider making for dinner tonight!
- Chicken Breasts: Boneless skinless chicken breast is the way to go with this recipe. The crock pot will cook them to fork tender and marinate the flavors of the other ingredients.
- Red Potatoes: These potatoes hold up extremely well when being cooked in the slow cooker. They won’t become too mushy and will often hold their shape.
- Green Beans: Not only does this vegetable add flavor, but it also adds an additional side cooked along with the chicken and potatoes.
- Seasonings: Italian seasoning, fresh garlic, garlic powder, kosher salt, and pepper create the perfect garlic parmesan sauce.
- Olive Oil: You’ll coat the bottom of the crock pot with it to keep the chicken from sticking.
- Parmesan Cheese: Added at end of cooking time to create the best-tasting garlic parmesan chicken.
Step One – Place raw chicken, potatoes, green beans, minced garlic, and all other seasonings into a slow cooker that has been sprayed with non stick spray.
Step Two – Toss all of the ingredients together to mix and ensure seasoning gets on everything.
Step Three – Cover and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours or on HIGH for about 4 hours. Make sure the chicken is cooked through.
Step Four – At the end of the cooking time, add one cup the shredded parmesan cheese.
Step Five – Stir the fresh parmesan into the cooked chicken meal.
Step Six – Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan cheese. Cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe FAQs and Variations
Yes! They will taste just as amazing as using chicken breasts. You can also use chicken legs!
Add cooked pasta directly to the meal, underneath as a bed, or as a side item.
Pour any leftovers into an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Russet potatoes, Yukon golds, or white potatoes can be used and will still work great in this recipe.
I don’t recommend putting frozen chicken into the slow cooker. Allow it to defrost, then add chicken into the slow cooker.
