With layers of prosciutto ham and provolone cheese tucked inside Parmesan-crusted chicken, these quick and easy Italian Stuffed Chicken Roll-Ups are a fun twist on the classic Cordon Bleu! Best of all, it’s a simple weeknight dinner that comes together with just 15 minutes of prep!

This meal was definitely a winner in our house. Since Italian food is one of our favorite cuisines, I thought that it would be fun to create a spin on another popular classic (Chicken Cordon Bleu), using Italian-inspired ingredients.

The end result was a family-friendly, low-carb, high-protein stuffed chicken recipe that I know you will love, too!

The stuffed chicken is delicious served alongside pasta with marinara sauce, or just paired with a green salad for a lighter option. And, like most of the recipes that I serve, you can adjust the ingredients to accommodate a smaller household with just 1 or 2 diners, or prep the stuffed chicken in advance and bake the dinner when your crew is hungry.

I aim for flexible, easy dinners that suit our busy life, and this particular dish is no exception!

Since the recipe uses 1.5-2 pounds of meat, our family even had some leftovers to enjoy later. Keith (who doesn’t usually enjoy leftovers) loved this dinner so much that he took the last few bits of stuffed chicken and put them in a sandwich for work the next day!

That’s when I know that a meal was a total success — the leftovers disappear instantly!

Need a leftover dinner idea?

Prepare two thick slices of garlic bread (the frozen kind works great!), add some sliced Italian Stuffed Chicken Roll-Ups inside, and spread with marinara sauce. Top with a little bit of extra provolone or mozzarella cheese, warm the whole sandwich in the oven, and dinner is served!

Tips For Making Italian Stuffed Chicken Roll-Ups

  • Cooking Just for Two? Cut all of your ingredients in half to prepare fewer roll-ups! The preparation instructions remain the same. Cooking instructions are also the same.
  • Want to Prep Ahead? You can prepare these roll-ups and freeze them for a few weeks before baking; OR you can bake the roll-ups, keep them in the refrigerator, and then just reheat them in a 350F (180C) oven for about 15 minutes.
  • You can use mozzarella instead of provalone.
  • Try adding different dried herbs to the breadcrumbs such as oregano, fennel seeds, marjoram or basil.

These Italian stuffed chicken roll ups are so easy to make and are incredibly delicious. Made with provolone cheese and slices of prosciutto these are sure to please the whole family!


  • 1.5 - 2 lbs. thinly-sliced chicken breasts I buy thin-sliced boneless chicken breasts at my grocery store as a shortcut, but you can also use regular chicken breasts that have been pounded to ¼-inch thickness
  • 3 ounces thinly-sliced deli ham or prosciutto
  • 4 slices or about 3 ounces provolone cheese
  • 2/3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley or 1-2 tablespoons of dried parsley flakes
  • ½ cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 425F (220C). Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Pour milk into a separate bowl.
  • Place a slice of ham and a slice of provolone cheese on each chicken breast. Depending on the size of your ham and cheese slices, you may need to trim them or cut them in half so that they are not hanging too far out of the roll-up.
  • Roll up chicken and secure with toothpicks.
  • Dip chicken rolls in milk, then coat with a light coating of the crumb mixture.
  • Place chicken seam-side down on prepared baking sheet.
  • Lightly spray chicken with cooking spray (this will help it turn golden brown!).
  • Bake, uncovered, for about 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove toothpicks and serve!

    I can see why these were a hit in your house…they look SO good! I love that you filled chicken with prosciutto and cheese. This sounds delicious and looks like such a cozy meal. Definitely need to try this one!

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Gayle! It’s such a great flavor combo!

  2. Susan Crowley says:

    I make a similar one with spinach instead of the prosciutto. It’s delish! Can’t wait to try this. I love your blog. Your kids are adorable sometimes I miss those crazy days! Enjoy!

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Susan! The spinach sounds like a really good addition. Thanks for that idea! 🙂

  3. Kristy from Southern In Law says:

    These look perfect! I’m always looking for new chicken recipes!

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Kristy! I agree — new chicken recipes are always welcome around here! 🙂

      1. Chip says:

        Has anyone tried this recipe with an air fryer? If so, what were the settings and how was it?

        1. Blair says:

          Hi, Chip! I’m sorry, but I haven’t tested it with the air fryer, so I’m no help in that regard. 🙂

        2. Monica says:

          I used the “chicken” button on my air fryer and cooked for 12 minutes thinking I would just check it and add more time but they were done beautifully with crispy edges and because I added cream cheese all the pan drippings made a yummy sauce! Love my air fryer for everything now!

          1. Blair says:

            Great tip, Monica! I don’t use the air fryer often, so it’s always helpful when folks share their experiences for others. Thank you!

            Can I do this with boneless, skinless thighs?

          3. Blair Lonergan says:

            Hi, Connie! Sure! Just pound the thighs flat to an even thickness so that you can roll them up easily. Hope you enjoy!

    Thank you for the wonderful recipe- chicken turned out perfect by following the easy instructions! Will definitely make again and again! Soooo good!!

    1. Blair says:

      That’s wonderful, Amber! I’m so glad that you enjoyed it! 🙂

  6. Ann says:

    What is the method to bake from frozen, please.
    These look amazing!

    1. Blair Lonergan says:

      Hi, Ann! I would cover the frozen roll ups loosely with foil for the first 25 minutes or so. Then remove the foil and continue baking for about 25 minutes, or until completely heated through. That timing is just a guess, though, so definitely keep an eye on them. Hope you enjoy!
