Chicken Breasts Saltimbocca Style

Jane Whittaker


This is a delicious chicken dish. It comes from the Mable Hoffman's Crockery Cookery book.
Over the years I have tweaked it a little.
This is my go to cookbook for my slow cooker and had lots of recipies that I make all the time.

  • 3Roll the chicken up, tucking in both ends in while rolling.
  • 4Secure with skewers or butchers twine.
  • 5In a shallow pan combine the flour, parmesean cheese, salt, parsley, and pepper.
  • 6In another bowl whip the eggs, and water together.
  • 7Roll the chicken in the egg, then roll in the flour mixture.
  • 8Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • 9Heat oil in fry pan and brown the chicken on all sides.
  • 10Place chicken in a single layer in a slow cooker.
  • 11In a bowl combine the cream of chicken soup, wine, 1/2 cup water, and gravy packet mix.
  • 12Pour over chicken.
  • 13Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.
