Mama K’s Tomato Basil Chicken Roll-Ups

This is one of my favorite recipes to make, it’s always a fan favourite as well!

I like to serve this meal with a slice of garlic toast and a fresh green salad.


  • Chicken Breasts- 1 per person
  • Sliced deli ham (I prefer black forest ham)-1 slice per breast
  • Provolone Cheese- 1 slice per breast
  • 1 package of grape tomatoes
  • 1 Jar (large) of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning Mix
  • Canola Oil (or whatever you usually use)
  • Angel Hair pasta

How to Make It

  • Take chicken breast, and lay on a large cutting board.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper over top, and pound until flatten and thinner.
  • Add slice of ham, and slice of cheese to the chicken breast.
  • Then roll up, and hold together with a toothpick.
  • Take a deep pan, and turn on medium-high.
  • Once hot add oil, and drop in grape tomatoes.
  • Cook until they blister.
  • Add tomato sauce to the pan, and Italian seasoning. Then bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, turn down to low-medium heat (or if you have numbers on your stove, about 3-4). Then slowly add chicken breasts and basil, and cover with lid.
  • Cook 20-25 minutes.
  • I am a huge fan of temp checking. So, if you have a thermometer, stick it in the chicken after 20 mins. Food safe temp for chicken is 165F.
  • Fill a pot of water for pasta, let boil.
  • When boiling, add a table spoon of oil, and a sprinkle of salt.
  • Add pasta.
  • Angel hair, is so thin, it literally only takes 3 minutes to cook!
  • Drain pasta.
  • Add to plate, then add chicken (don’t forget to remove toothpicks).
  • Drizzle tomato sauce from pan on top of the chicken.
  • Serve! And enjoy!

Oh, just a note! We had an incident while I was dishing this up. My husband tried to be helpful, by carrying the plates to the table. I made a perfectly set up dish for a photo, and he dropped it… Straight up, all over my kitchen floor, my pants, my lower cabinets. So, I had to quickly scoop up the chicken, and remake some pasta! Don’t be my husband!
