Pseudo Saltimbocca Recipe

serves 6

  • cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into thirds lengthwise
  • 12 thin slices provolone cheese
  • 1/2 pound sliced prosciutto or good-quality boiled ham
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Coat the slow cooker crock with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Slice the cheese in half crosswise, making two stacks. Then cut each stack in half again, making rectangular pieces.
  3. Assemble the roll-ups: On a cutting board or clean counter, lay one prosciutto or ham slice with a short end closest to you. Lay two pieces of cheese atop the prosciutto slice, lined up with the bottom edge of the prosciutto slice. Lay one strip of chicken across the cheese.
  4. Roll up, starting at bottom edge (chicken may stick out the ends of the roll-up). Place roll-up in the slow cooker crock and repeat until all prosciutto, cheese, and chicken is used, making layers of roll-ups in the crock as you go. Tuck the sage leaves around and between the roll-ups. Sprinkle roll-ups with pepper.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours. When done cooking, use tongs to remove the roll-ups to a platter. Turn slow cooker to high. Stir cream and Parmesan into the juices in the crock; cover and cook about 10 minutes.
  6. Return roll-ups to the slow cooker crock to coat them with the sauce, and serve.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
