  1. Place the chicken thighs between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/2-inch.
  2. Whisk together the teriyaki sauce and chili sauce in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 18 to 24 hours.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with butter-flavored cooking spray.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Lay each chicken thigh flat, then layer a slice of ham on each thigh followed by the string cheese. Roll up each chicken thigh around the string cheese and ham, and secure each roll with a toothpick.. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  5. Spray each bundle with the butter-flavored cooking spray. Pour panko flakes onto a dish, then roll the bundles into the crumbs and place on prepared baking dish. Lightly spray the bundles once more.
  6. Bake the chicken bundles until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 35 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

These flavors just do not go together. The teriyaki and mozzarella just does not work.

What a great flavor combination! I only marinated for 8 hours, but that seemed to be long enough to impart the teriyaki flavor. I'm going to try to find a low-sodium teriyaki sauce (or make my...

This was so easy and turned out really nice. After mine was done I added Deli mustard at my husbands request. Surprisingly good.

OMG!!!! This was so good. Cut the recipe to 2 servings. I ate the ham for lunch so I substituted genoa salami. It was mouth watering good. The next day I sliced it and ate it on a sandwich.

This is a very original and awesome recipe. I read the other recommendations and lowered the teriyaki marinating time to 6 hours. You could taste the flavor very well. I put the thighs in a g...
