Crockpot Chicken Parmesan

Crockpot Chicken Parmesan is a convenient and delicious way to enjoy this classic Italian dish without much fuss. Here’s how to make it:


  • 48 oz Ragu Pasta Sauce (two 24-oz. jars)
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano (or Italian Seasoning)
  • 1 lb. penne pasta (cooked according to package directions)
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


  1. Prepare the Slow Cooker:
    • Place the boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a 6-quart or larger slow cooker.
  2. Season the Chicken:
    • Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper, and oregano (or Italian Seasoning).
  3. Add Pasta Sauce:
    • Pour the Ragu Pasta Sauce over the seasoned chicken in the slow cooker.
  4. Cook in the Slow Cooker:
    • Cover the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or on LOW for 6-8 hours. Resist the temptation to open the lid during the cooking time to keep the heat and moisture inside.
  5. Prepare the Pasta:
    • While the chicken is cooking, prepare the penne pasta on the stovetop according to the package directions. Drain it very well.
  6. Shred the Chicken:
    • When the cooking time for the chicken is done, use two forks to shred the chicken directly in the slow cooker.
  7. Combine Pasta and Chicken:
    • Add the drained penne pasta to the shredded chicken and sauce in the slow cooker. Stir everything together until well combined.
  8. Add Cheese:
    • Flatten the pasta and chicken mixture into an even layer in the slow cooker.
    • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese over the top.
  9. Melt the Cheese:
    • Cover the slow cooker again and let it cook for an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is bubbly.
  10. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once the cheese has melted, the Crockpot Chicken Parmesan is ready to be served. Spoon it onto plates and enjoy your delicious homemade meal.
