Ham & Swiss Chicken Roll-Ups Recipe

White wine dresses up cream of chicken soup to make a lovely sauce for chicken, ham and Swiss cheese roll-ups. The tried-and-true recipe comes from my mother. —Carol McCollough, Missoula, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Cook: 4 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 6 thin slices deli ham
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
  • Hot cooked rice


  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Top each piece with a slice of ham and cheese. Roll up tightly; secure with toothpicks. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Roll chicken in flour mixture; refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. In a large skillet, brown roll-ups in oil on all sides; transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine the soup and wine or broth; pour over chicken.
  • 3. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until meat is longer pink. Remove roll-ups and stir sauce. Discard toothpicks. Serve with rice.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled chicken roll-up and sauce in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a covered saucepan, gently stirring and adding a little broth or milk if necessary. Yield: 6 servings.

"Anything I can make in a slow cooker is a good dinner to me! This chicken turned out great. Just put it in the crockpot and let it go. Big hit with my family!"

"garyzee, No where does the recipe say it's Saltimbocca. It's called HAM & SWISS chicken ROLL UPS!!!!! Why are you people so critical of these recipes??? I've made similar dishes like this and whatever the name, the recipe is delicious. You want to lighten it up or use less salt, then do it, but why criticize everything?"

"Made it the first time with some ham I had in the ' was a honey roasted ham. I liked the recipe so much (no thanks to this ham) That I made it again, changing nothing but the ham to a fresh black forest from the Deli and wow amazing how just changing the ham made such a difference. Very nice thank you for sharing your recipe"

"I have made this many times in the past. My husband and I both love it. Only change I make is I use provolone cheese instead of swiss since I don't like swiss."

"This is delicious. I used chicken tenders, sharp cheddar cheese, made my own cream of garlic soup instead of using the canned soup and used chicken broth. It was fantastic with mashed potatoes."

"<p>Whoever the chef is for this recipe should know better-it is not Saltimbocca unless there is sage with a white wine reduction sauce. No deli ham, no swiss cheese. It should be prosciutto and provolone, definitely no parmesan cheese, no cream of chicken. The photo's chicken looks thicker than 1/4". The only thing correct about this recipe is that it is rolled.</p>"

"I am not a ham eater but in this recipe it gives it such a good taste. Make sure to pound the chicken out thin, I did not and it was a challenege to roll. I would definatly make this again."

"I noticed that TOH has another version of a chicken Saltimbocca recipe. I liked the ingredients better in this one and tried it yesterday (along with TOH's Mini Toffee Rolls). What a wonderful meal. This chicken dish is so delicious. Instead of rice, I made a side dish of stuffing which I topped with the fabulous sauce. This is definitely a keeper recipe."

"Using low sodium cream of chicken soup/broth and leaving out the 1/2 tsp salt, using low fat cheese will make this a MUCH healthier meal."

"We found this recipe to be fabulous! I'm a harsh critic of my own cooking and even I was impressed. I was short on time so instead of refrigerating for an hour and cooking in the crock pot on low for 4-5 hours, I put the rolled chicken in the freezer for 30 minutes and cooked on high for 3 hours. chicken was very tender and delicious!"
