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.

How to Make Chicken Breasts Saltimbocca Style

Step-by-Step

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