Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan Recipe
2 tsp. olive oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 3 oz.) each
1 1/4 cups crushed tomatoes
2 large cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp. Sugar
Pinch of celery seeds
2 tbs. dry red wine
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over med.-high heat. Add the chicken and saute, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 10 min. Combine the chicken and next 5 ingredients in the crock pot. Cover and cook on LOW until the chicken is cooked through and a meat thermometers registers 170 degrees – approximately 6-8 hrs. Combine the cheeses in a small bowl and sprinkle them over the chicken. Don’t stir. Cook until the cheeses are melted, about 15 min.
