#Recipe Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches

Recipe Icon

 I love to cook with my crock pot. I love being able to throw everything together and just letting it cook all day. I often look on Pinterest for recipes. You never know when you will find your next favorite recipe. I found one that sounded good. It’s called Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches. 

This recipe is from Melanie from Melanie Makes. You can see her blog here. This recipe is posted with her permission. I changed it up a bit for myself, I’ll post my changes. Here is the original recipe.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours, 5 minutes


28 ounces crushed tomatoes

14.5 ounces diced tomatoes, drained

12 ounces tomato paste

1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

1 large onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, pressed

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon basil

2 bay leaves

3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

16 slices mozzarella or provolone cheese

12 buns or rolls


Add crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, oregano, basil and bay leaves to slow cooker.

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and nestle into sauce. Cook four hours on HIGH or six hours on LOW.

Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir to combine with sauce.

Toast buns and then top with chicken mixture and a slice of cheese. Heat under broiler until cheese is melted and beginning to bubble.

Top sandwich with other half of bun and serve.


Here is what I did different:

I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. I also did not use bay leaves. Instead of making sandwiches, I simply ate the chicken breasts whole and spooned the sauce over it. I also used some all purpose seasoning that I love and use on everything. 



This recipe is delicious. Not only is it delicious it’s very easy to make. It smells amazing while cooking as well. Be sure to check out all the other recipes on Melanie Makes.
