  • 1-2 cups of your favorite teriyaki sauce

Place chicken breasts, 1 at a time, between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound to an even thickness.

Marinate in the teriyaki sauce for 6-24 hours in a Ziploc bag.

Other Ingredients:

  • Swiss cheese slices
  • Mayonnaise
  • Hamburger buns (whatever flavor you like)

Additional topping ideas:

  • Lettuce
  • Tomato slices
  • Sweet yellow onion slices
  • Extra teriyaki sauce

Spray cooking spray in a grill pan over medium heat. Add pineapple rings & cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from grill pan & set aside.

Add more cooking spray or some olive oil to the pan; add chicken and cook over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on the first side.

Turn over and add the pineapple rings and Swiss cheese. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.

Heat the bun under the broiler for 1-2 minutes.

Add mayonnaise to the bun, chicken/pineapple/cheese, and all the fixings you want. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
