Chicken parmesan is probably one of my favorite comfort foods. It doesn’t get much better than mountains of pasta topped with breaded chicken and gooey cheese. However the typical chicken parm dish can be upwards of 1000 calories! So I decided to recreate one of my favorite foods into a healthier version, that didn’t blow your diet. This slow cooker chicken parm is simple to make, full of protein, and low carb. Serve it with your favorite pasta, turn it into a sandwich, or simply serve it with veggies to keep the carbs low. The possibilities are endless!
Start out by grabbing all of your ingredients and your slow cooker. I used a 7 Quart crockpot, and there was plenty of room! In your slow cooker, add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, onions, garlic, parsley, oregano, and basil. Stir well until fully combined.
Then set the chicken breast on top of the sauce, sprinkle generously with salt/pepper, cover and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours. Once the chicken is fully cooked, shred it using two forks. The chicken should fall apart easily. If yours isn’t, then let it cook a bit longer.

Serve immediately and top with the low fat mozzarella cheese. I served mine with chickpea pasta and broccoli to make a complete meal! I’ve also served this over zoodles (zucchini noodles) and with potatoes. It’s delicious every time! This recipe is sure to be a favorite of even the pickiest eaters.
