Whew! We are making it through the week. Sometimes short weeks are the longest. Maybe I am easily spoiled or maybe I am looking forward to the weekend. It will be another busy one. My Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw will be in town, so there are plenty of activities planned. We are also celebrating my littlest sister's birthday. She has requested a Brownie Cheesecake with Mocha Whipped Cream for her birthday cake. I am excited to have the chance to make it again. I think I might make it in a round pan this time and maybe make a bigger size? Because more cheesecake always seems like a good idea!
Every time we have a good slow cooker dinner like this, it makes me wonder why I don't use it more often. I have a few ideas I want to try out soon. Hopefully they'll work out and I can share them with you. What are your favorite things to cook in the slow cooker?
Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches
makes 8 sandwiches
2-3 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts
24 oz jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
salt and pepper
1 pack of 8 hamburger buns
1 T butter
1/2 tsp garlic salt
8 slices provolone
- Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place in slow cooker. Pour sauce over chicken and sprinkle with garlic powder and oregano. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4.
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Place open buns, cut side up on a baking sheet. Melt butter and stir in garlic salt. Brush over bun faces. Place in oven and cook until lightly toasted, 5-10 minutes.
- Shred chicken with a couple of forks. Then mound on top of the bottom halves of the burger buns. Top with a slice of cheese and place back in the oven to melt the cheese, this should take only a couple of more minutes.
- Dinner is ready!
