  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt divided (plus more to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup fat free buttermilk
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 3/4 cups finely grated parmesan cheese divided
  • 4 (8 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 (24 oz) jar pasta sauce divided (plus more, for serving, if desired)
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 3/4 cups freshly shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (16 oz) box spaghetti cooked al denté according to box directions, for serving


  • Whisk together flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper on a large shallow plate. Set aside.
  • Beat eggs and milk together in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  • Whisk together panko, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, Italian seasoning, basil, and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese on another large shallow plate. Set aside.
  • Bread breasts in flour, eggs, then breadcrumb mixture, then place them onto a clean work surface. Don’t be shy - there’s plenty of each breading mixture!
  • Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Working with 2 breasts at a time, cook chicken until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes on each side.
  • Repeat with remaining chicken breasts, adding oil to the sauté pan, if needed.
  • Grease a 6 quart crockpot with cooking spray, then pour half the sauce into the bottom.
  • Top with seared chicken breasts, then pour remaining sauce on top.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.
  • Uncover the crockpot and top with sliced provolone, shredded mozzarella, and remaining 1/4 cup parmesan.
  • Recover and cook until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
  • Taste and re-season, if necessary (I added more salt).
  • Serve on top of cooked pasta with extra sauce, if desired.
