I’m a sucker for any dish with “Hawaiian” in the name. Chances are it’s going to involve pineapple juice and brown sugar, so what’s not to love?
The chicken marinates overnight in a soy sauce, mustard, pineapple and brown sugar (see!) mixture. 5 minutes of prep and 15 minutes to cook, and you’ve got one killer sandwich. And you don’t need to travel to Hawaii to get it. Although that would be nice…
Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Sandwiches
Prep time: 5 minutes
Grill time: 15 minutes
• 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
• 1 can (8 ounce) pineapple rings
• 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar
• 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
• 4 slices provolone cheese
• 4 hamburger buns or kaiser rolls
Pound out the chicken breasts to an even thickness and slice each in half, so you have 4 pieces total. Combine the juice from the pineapple can, soy sauce, brown sugar, and mustard. Marinate the chicken overnight in the the juice mixture.
Prepare your grill for medium-high heat. Grill the chicken for 15 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Add the cheese with 3 minutes left. While the chicken is grilling, add the pineapple rings halfway through, turning once. Smear some mayo on the buns, then top with a piece of chicken and a pineapple ring.
