Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Sliders Recipe

Rebekah Garcia Kalinowski | Kitchen Gidget

Slow cooker chicken parmesan sliders are mouthwateringly delicious and insanely easy to make! Chicken breasts cook in marinara sauce until fall-apart tender and can be used in these party sliders or a quick dinner during the week!

This recipe was inspired by one of my friends. She is the queen of cooking chicken in the crock pot and using it multiple ways throughout the week. It always comes out tender and juicy, and she rotates the seasonings so it never gets boring.

I thought slow cooker chicken parmesan sliders with mozzarella cheese would be delicious. Plus, they are so easy to make and healthier since it doesn’t involve breading and frying chicken.

In a Crock Pot, cook chicken with marinara sauce until it shreds with a fork. You can simply serve this on buns with cheese for dinner, or turn it into party sliders like I did. You could also go low-carb with a chicken parmesan veggie bowl. So many options!

I served these on mini rolls and gave them the royal treatments with a cheesy garlic butter sauce that was divine! Bake for a few minutes until everything is hot and the cheese is melty – so good!

These are going into the dinner rotation and I can already they are going to be a huge hit at parties and game day. Don’t forget dessert – if you like things a little sweet and salty check out my Tropical Orange Pretzel Salad!

The recipe below will make two dozen sliders. However, I like to make double the meat while my crock pot is already working.

The slow cooker part of this recipe is one of my favorite aspects because I can use the leftovers throughout the week. Nix the hamburger in my Ricotta Pasta with Beef and use this chicken instead. Boom – dinner is served!
