Delicious and flavorful meals like Chicken Parmesan don’t have to be complicated, and in my opinion should not require you to stand in the kitchen for over an hour preparing them. That is where our handy friend the crock pot comes into play. Using your crock pot to prepare your meals is a quick and easy way to infuse flavor and reduce fuss. Who doesn’t love coming home to a hot, and tasty meal ready to serve?
