Ham & Swiss Chicken Roll-Ups

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
  • Makes
    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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    This was a good recipe and easy to put together. I’m working from home right now so I threw it together on my lunch hour and it was good to go by dinner. I did use wine which I reduced by boiling 1 cup until I had 1/2 c liquid (about 6 minutes). I also thought the sauce may be bland without seasoning so I added rosemary, tyme, sage, and garlic powder (1/2 tsp each). I served with mashed potatoes and a green salad. I didn’t go for seconds, I thought it was good but great, maybe a little bland even with the extra seasoning. My boyfriend liked it a lot and went for seconds.

    Excellent recipe! I didn’t have time to leave them in the refrigerator for an hour before browning, and they still turned out delicious! Super easy, and I didn’t change a thing.

    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

    This was very good I felt the flavor was a little bland so I added some fresh herbs. I added chopped sage thyme and rosemary. My guests loved it. ,!,

    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.

    I changed some items. Used turkey ham, used provolone cheese, used olive oil, no soup, cooked in oven instead. Served with pasta with olive oil insstead of rice.

    <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>
