WOW!! I was a little sceptical as to how this would turn out but shame on me for being a doubter. This made an excellent chicken parmesan and as you said, without all the work. I liked the inclusion of the eggplant, too. Sauteing the chicken beforehand I think contributed to the success of this dish. I served the chicken and eggplant with noodles. Thanks for making a believer out of me ;)

Wow! This was a huge hit with both me and my husband! Normally, my husband does not like chicken in the crock pot, but I decided to try one more recipe and he LOVED it! I think sauting the chicken before putting in the crock pot made a big differnce. The recipe was very easy to make and the eggplant was such a wonderful addition.

the BEST! this has DEFINATELY made it into my "favorite and often" category in my cookbook here at home. I made this last night and the only "tweaking" I did was, instead of using pizza sauce, I used what I had in my pantry (1 can of diced garlic/basil tomatoes, 1 can tomato sauce & 1 can tomato paste) and it was FANTASTIC! I served mine over ziti with sides of a green salad and garlic bread...a hit with everyone in the family AND I'm looking forward to leftovers for lunch today! AWESOME!!!
