Recipe by Linky
READY IN: 38mins
YIELD: 2 rolls




  • Start the rice according to package directions.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Carefully butterfly the chicken breasts with a very sharp knife. Spread open and put into a zip plastic bag with a little water. Pound flat with the back of a cast iron pan or meat mallet.
  • Remove from bag. Put 2 pieces of ham and half of the cheese on each breast. Roll up and secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, roll in flour until coated.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a cast iron skillet. Add chicken rolls, seam side down, and cook on each side until golden brown. (About 8 - 10 minutes) Put in oven to finish cooking (about 8 more minutes).
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in medium skillet. Add chopped onion and pineapple. Stir until onion has softened. Add brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and tomato paste. Simmer, stirring occasionally until somewhat reduced.
  • When done, cut each chicken roll into diagonal slices. Serve with brown rice and the pineapple sauce.
