Jen's Chicken Parmesan (Crock Pot)

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

If  you are looking for a really good crock pot recipe then this is it! I got this recipe from the Medifast recipe forum at www.mymedifast.com and it was shared by Jen2011. I love this recipe because it is definitely family friendly. The hubby or wifey and kids are sure to like this one! Not to mention, who doesn't like a great crock pot recipe? You just throw the ingredients in a crock pot and wait until the end of the day and you have a nice hearty meal! Ohhhhh and it makes the house smell sooooo good while it is cooking! Basically, there are no cooking skills required :) Yay! I enjoyed this dish with 2 cups of lettuce and Ken's Lite Northern Italian Dressing (as my healthy fat) while hubby ate his with pasta. Boy, did he chow down! It is so nice to be able to cook something for both myself and hubby so we can enjoy it together. Hubby isn't one to like "diet" food so I am always searching for some recipes that he and I can both eat without hubby going hungry LOL. This is another one of those recipes that hubby put on the "Must make again" list. Thanks Jen for a fabulous recipe!

If you do not want to use the marinara sauce below, there is another one that looks equally delicious with less condiments. I just happened to get it in my email this morning, but I had already made my own sauce last night. The other recipe is from Skinny Taste by Gina called Quick Marinara Sauce. It looks very yummy and is so simple to make. I may try making a large batch of that sauce and store it in the freezer! I hope you enjoy this recipe!
