Easy Teriyaki Chicken Burgers

A super simple way to make a chicken burger that zings with flavor! Sometimes it's referred to as "hawaiian-style." This has been my husband's favorite for a long time, especially at Red Robin. That got too expensive after a while so I thought I'd try making it at home instead. He loves it! These burgers have been a big hit whenever we have friends over for a barbeque.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken breasts in glass dish and smother with teriyaki sauce; turn breasts over to cover thoroughly.
  2. Marinate as long as possible, preferably in the fridge overnight.
  3. 15-30 minutes if you’re in a hurry.
  4. On stovetop or grill, cook chicken about 12 to 14 minutes.
  5. (7-8 minutes in a George Foreman grill).
  6. Chicken breasts (bone-in and boneless) should be cooked to an internal temperature of 170 F.
  7. Exact grilling times will depend on the heat of your grill/pan as well as on the thickness of the chicken breast.
  8. Chicken is done if, when pierced, the juices run clear or the breast is no longer pink inside.
  9. Spread mayonnaise on each bun, top& bottom.
  10. Place each cooked chicken breast on a bun and top with a pineapple slice.
  11. Serve alongside a summer salad or veggies and don’t forget a tall glass of iced tea!

We loved these sandwiches! Had them tonight, actually. Used the King's Hawaiian Hamburger Buns, which are a little on the sweet side, and marinated the chicken in Soy Vay Island Teriyaki for 2 hours. We took the suggestion of adding a slice of provolone cheese on top of the pineapple. Delicious!! We served with corn on the cob and pineapple. I'll definitely be making this recipe again!

Super Delicious, I made my own teriyaki sauce and marinated the breasts over night and it was AMAZING!

I make something similar to this, only I grill the pineapple ring and add a couple pieces of thick sliced bacon. Mmmm good.
