Weekend Cooking: Malibu Chicken Rollups

A couple of months ago, Trish and I had a short twitter conversation about Malibu Chicken. We both remembered it from Sizzler's growing up. And perhaps our moms had attempted to make it at home as well. Malibu Chicken sounded like a great meal idea so I took to the internets to find a good recipe. I didn't find just one recipe that I could use but several. I combined them to make my own recipe.

Malibu Chicken Rollups

6 thinly sliced chicken breasts
6 slices of ham
6 slices of swiss cheese
1 cup panko crumbs
2 tbs garlic powder
1/4 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
1 large egg

Heat oven to 375ยบ. In a bowl combine panko, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese. Beat egg in separate bowl. Set aside.

Take one piece of chicken and place one piece of swiss cheese on top like this:
The lay a slice of ham on top:
Then roll the bundle carefully and secure with a toothpick. Repeat process with the rest of the chicken, swiss, and ham. You'll have six bundles like this:
Carefully dip each bundle in the egg then roll in the panko mix.
Bake on a foil or parchment lined cookie sheet for 25-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked and coating is golden brown.

Malibu chicken all cooked:
I also made a honey mustard sauce to go over the chicken. Combine mayo, yellow mustard, dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and honey to taste. I usually start with 1/4 of mayo and 2 tbs of everything else until I get the right taste for me.
Pour honey mustard sauce over chicken:
A big hit here. Everyone loved the flavors. It's on our menu a few times a month now.

Do you remember the Malibu Chicken at Sizzler?

  1. I've never been to a Sizzler's Restaurant, I don't think I've ever seen one in my area. This chicken sounds very tasty, though, no matter where the inspiration came from. :)

  2. I've never heard of the restaurant either, but the chicken does look really good!

  3. that's what I usually got! off to pin recipe :-)

  4. I have never been to a Sizzler either, but I make a similar recipe that I found in a low-fat cookbook. My family loves it.

  5. I've never heard of Sizzler's, but this dish looks amazing!

  6. I've never been t a Sizzler's but this looks like an Americanized chicken cordon bleu. I bet this tastes wonderful!

  7. Great - looks easy and delicious!
