Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches are a great weeknight meal. Ron loves chicken parmesan and I decided that I wanted to make a slow cooker sandwich version for us to enjoy on the weeknights. This recipe is so easy and the chicken is very flavorful from the marinara and spices. I opted to sandwich ours between sub roll made into garlic bread. Kellen, Ron and I loved these sandwiches and they made wonderful leftovers for lunch the following day. I use a jarred pasta sauce for this recipe, but you can use homemade or a different type of tomato sauce than marinara.
I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
