Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan

Four boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 jar marinara sauce (preferably organic with minimal sugar)
  • 1 box whole-wheat penne or spaghetti pasta
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 4 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  1. Place four boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crockpot and cover with 1 jar of marinara sauce.  Cook on High for 3 ½ – 4 hours. 
  2. Before the chicken is done (half hour), cook one box of whole-wheat pasta.  Add in two cups of fresh broccoli florets the last three minutes of cooking and drain.
  3. Place 1 slice of part-skim mozzarella cheese over each breast and let it melt in the crockpot. 
  4. Serve 1 chicken breast over about 1 ½ cups of the pasta-broccoli mix.
