Take-out Tuesday, Chicken Parmigiana Rolls

I am a huge believer in cooking chicken in a slow cooker, whether to put into a casserole, or for a complete meal. I have seen recipes for Chicken Parmigiana in the slow cooker floating around and decided to give it a whirl~ my main inspiration came from Plain Chicken, her method is so easy, I had to give it a try~


I used boneless chicken thighs, Basil and Tomato Sauce, minced onion, garlic and Italian seasoning


This is one of those embarrassingly easy recipes, but hey, who doesn’t need easy sometimes~


Pour the sauce over the seasoned chicken, cover and go scuba diving or something


Cook on low for 6-8 hours, and when you come back all you have to do is toast some buns and serve it up


I used small crusty rolls, and spread them with butter and garlic seasoning and toasted them


Place a piece of chicken, or shred the chicken if you prefer, on the toasted bun and top with with a generous amount of shaved Parmesan


This tastes really good after a long busy day~
