This chicken teriyaki with grilled pineapple sandwich is a favorite in our house. It’s a perfect combination of savory & sweet with a bit of crunch. These chicken teriyaki sandwiches are easy to make, kid-friendly, and really good. This burger pairs nicely with baked thick-cut fries.
Chicken Teriyaki with Grilled Pineapple Sandwich:
- 3-4 chicken breasts, trimmed of any fat
- 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.
- 1 can of pineapple rings (or fresh pineapple if you prefer)
- Swiss cheese slices
- Hamburger buns (whatever flavor you like)
Additional topping ideas:
- Tomato slices
- Sweet yellow onion slices
- Extra teriyaki sauce
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!
