- 1 box brown rice, prepared according to package directions
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 8 slices deli ham
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Flour, as needed for coating
- 3 tablespoons EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
- 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
- 2 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup tamari (dark soy sauce)
- 1 cup prepared tomato sauce (use a plain variety instead of one with a lot of add-ins)
- 3 to 4 scallions, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 400F.
Get the rice going, according to the package directions.
With that working, flatten the chicken breasts into cutlets first by butterflying each piece. Open one of the breasts up and place it into a large zipper bag with a small amount of water. Squeeze as much of the air as you can out of the bag then seal it. Using a meat mallet or small, cast iron skillet, pound the breast out until it's evenly thin (while you'll need a little force here, don't be too aggressive when pounding or you'll end up with an uneven cutlet or, even worse, tear the meat). Remove the cutlet from the bag and reserve it on a large cutting board. Pound out the rest of your chicken breasts the same way.
With all of your chicken flattened out, take one cutlet and lay two pieces of sliced ham in the center. Top it with a small handful of cheese (about 1/4 cup) and roll it up into a log. Secure the roll-up with a toothpick then roll up your remaining chicken breasts, ham and cheese the same way. Season the outside of the roll-ups with salt and freshly ground black pepper and toss them lightly in the flour to coat the outside.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of EVOO, about 2 tablespoons. Place the chicken into the pan and cook until each side is golden brown, 8-10 minutes total. Once the roll-ups are golden brown, finish cooking them in the oven for 6-8 minutes.
While the chicken roll-ups are cooking, place a medium skillet over medium-high heat with 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, about 1 tablespoon. Add in the onion and pineapple, and cook until the onion begins to get tender, 4-5 minutes. Add in the brown sugar, vinegar, tamari and tomato sauce. Simmer your homemade BBQ sauce for a couple of minutes to thicken it up and season it with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
To serve, stir the sliced scallions into the brown rice and put some on each plate. Slice the chicken roll-ups on an angle and pour the sauce over each one.
