Saltines deliver a satisfying crunch, while ham and Swiss make up the savory, melty filling in this chicken that rocks (and rolls).

Crispy Chicken Roll-Ups Recipe


  • 6 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
  • 12 slices deli-style smoked ham
  • 6 thin Swiss cheese slices
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 14 PREMIUM Saltine Crackers, finely crushed (about 2/3 cup)
  • 3 Tbsp. margarine or butter, melted


  • Heat  oven to 350ºF.
  • Place  chicken, top-sides down, on cutting board; cover with ham and cheese. Starting at one short end of each, roll up tightly. Secure with wooden toothpicks.
  • Dip  chicken in eggs, then roll in cracker crumbs until evenly coated on all sides. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; drizzle with margarine.
  • Bake  40 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Remove and discard toothpicks before serving.

Recipe Tips

Serving SuggestionServe with cooked fresh green beans.

How to Easily Crush the CrackersUse a food processor or blender to crush the crackers.

Food FactsIf the chicken breasts in your market are larger than 4 oz. each, they will take longer to cook. Be sure to cook them long enough so they are no longer pink in the centers and the juices run clear (165ºF).
