Chicken Parmesan {healthier version}

Author: Kasey Trenum

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 jar no sugar added spaghetti sauce (see options in notes)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes Italian style
  • 4 garlic cloves diced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker.
  • Cover chicken with the next 5 ingredients and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
  • Once the chicken is done, spoon spaghetti sauce into a greased casserole dish.
  • Place cooked chicken breasts on top of a low-carb spaghetti sauce. (Chicken may break in pieces since it is tender.)
  • Sprinkle parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese on top of chicken breasts.
  • Turn oven on broil and place chicken on the top rack of the oven.
  • Broil for 2-3 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese begins to brown.
  • Serve on either spaghetti squash or whole grain noodles if you don't eat low-carb.
