*So I forgot to take a picture of this when I made it the other night, but next time I make it I'll remember and then I'll post a picture. This chicken is so stinkin' easy to make, it takes about 30 min.(Rachael ray show) from beginning to end to make! And it looks like you spent so much time preparing it! It's like the Hawaiian version of Chicken cordon bleu! You absolutely have to try it! Please let me know what you think when you do!
-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
-mallot or skillet (one that can be put in the oven)
-italian seasoning (or whatever you like to use)
-small sweet onion (the purple ones, or whatever you have will work, the purple ones just add a sweeter flavor)
- 1 can of chunked pineapple
-soy sauce (just a little)
-3 tbs. brown sugar
-3 tbs. vinegar (anykind is fine, I use white)
-scallions (if desired)
-preheat oven to 400 degrees.
-place chicken breasts in a plastic bag with a tiny bit of water) or on your hard surface with wax paper over the top. (this helps the chicken not splatter everwhere when you're taking all your frustrations out on it!:O)
-butterfly your chicken (cut the chicken breast in half, but not all the way, leave a little bit connecting it to each other)
-now pound out the chicken with a mallot or some skillet pan to make it thin.
-sprinkle the italian seasoning (or seasoning of your choice) on the open part of the chicken breast.
-place a ham slice in each chicken breast and top with the cheese.
-roll up the chicken as best you can.
-now roll the chicken in a little flour. Just enough to coat it.
-drop it in a skillet with hot olive oil. You're just browning it.
-after chicken is browned, place it in the hot oven (you can transfer chicken to a pan if you don't have a skillet that can go in the oven) and bake it for another 10-15 min. or until done.
-while the chicken is cooking you can cook your sauce~
-saute sliced onion in olive oil.
-Add the pineapple chunks and let it sweat out a little (till they get a little translusent looking)
-Add: the brown sugar, vinegar, tomato sauce and soy sauce (just a few shakes of soy).
**Serve the chicken on top of rice mixed with scallions and then the sauce. I don't always serve mine on top of rice. Instead I just serve the chicken with a nice salad and some other veggie like steamed broccoli or green beans. It's so yummy! Enjoy!!
