I have something quick, easy AND delicious to share with you today! This recipe is a crowd pleaser and its easy to make a big tray of sandwiches in a hurry! Juicy pineapple, tender chicken smothered in tangy barbecue sauce and a whole lot of melted cheese make these sandwich rolls a perfect dinner.
We just packed up our house and moved everything into storage while we’re going through a crazy transition from a doctorate program to a real job. As I was cleaning out the fridge I realized that I had a big bag of Rhodes rolls that I needed to finish off before we moved. I had this brilliant idea to make a big tray of these sandwich rolls with some leftover barbecue pulled pork and mmmm-mmmm. This is a great way to use up leftover ingredients and make them new and delicious! They were amazing - the kids gobbled them up so fast! They were even good as a cold late night snack after hours of packing... I might have eaten half a dozen of these in one night!
Not only were they delicious, but they were so easy to whip up amid the chaos of packing a storage pod. Here’s how we pulled these delicious sandwich rolls together!
Start by pulling out your rolls and letting them thaw. I let my raise a little bit as well so they were a little fluffier.
For this recipe, I just grilled up some chicken and shredded it (to make it even easier, just grab a rotisserie chicken)! Toss some barbecue sauce on to coat the chicken. Grab a can of pineapple and some cheddar cheese and ta-da! All the ingredients are ready to go!
Put all the ingredients in bowls to make them easier to top the rolls.
Stretch each roll out so that it’s flat. I didn’t even grab a rolling pin for this recipe, just stretched them out a bit.
On one side of the roll add a spoonful of barbecue chicken.
Top with a few diced pineapple and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
Fold the other half of the dough over the top and then place on a cooking sheet. To make the process quick and easy, I didn’t worry about sealing the rolls, but left them open so they look more like a taco.
I made as many as I could get to fit on a cooking sheet! So much goodness. Top them all off with another sprinkle of cheese!
These rolls take about 15-20 minutes to bake in the oven at 350.
Take them off the sheet and let them cool for a couple minutes! This is an easy dinner idea if you pair it with a big yummy salad! It’s also a great on-the-go lunch or snack idea. Just grab it and go!
