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!
Very good burger! One thing I would do next time though is maybe choose smaller chicken breasts than the ones we had this time around since they were quite large and it made for a hard to eat burger lol. And with the larger breasts the chicken to pineapple ratio wasn't really as good. I think I would like more pineapple on each anyway. I had to use vegannaise since my son is allergic to eggs, but it didn't compromise it at all. I toasted the buns first, and also grilled the pineapple slices before putting them on. As was mentioned by another reviewer some provolone would be great one this, but my son is also allergic to dairy so we haven't been using cheese obviously anyway. I think I might also put some lettuce or something on it next time. Simple to make for sure!

I live and work in Olympia, WA. I've never been much of a cook, never really enjoyed it. I think I inherited that from my mother. During my childhood, her idea of a gourmet meal was when someone else, like Grandma, cooked it. Every now and again she'd get excited about a BLT sandwich, chili dogs, or chicken-pot-pies. Woohoo! Watch out Martha Stewart! ;-)
