Simple Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches

I assume because I added pineapple it makes these Hawaiian. (?)

But look at that bacon! and MELTED SWISS.

I think technically, if a sandwich has pineapple, cheese, and something teriyaki-y in it, it’s Hawaiian. And your entire upper torso. But don’t try to double check that last part because I heard the Internet is down.

I actually really love sandwiches for dinner. It feels strangely festive to me. Especially if it’s a warm sandwich, which this is and you’re like WE CAN TELL THAT ALREADY.

So this is how it all goes down. Plop some chicken breast in some plastic baggies, and violently dump in some teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice and brown sugar. Voila! Your marinade.

Quick question while I have you: do you say mariNOD or mariNADE? Martha (I call her Martha) always says mariNOD and it makes me giggle. But not the kind of giggle where I’m looking at a puppy dog. More like the kind of giggle right before a colonoscopy.

Let your chicken chill in the fridge as long as you want! Even if you have just an hour, you’re still a good person.

Make you some dang bacon.

The sandwich itself is super straightforward and painless. Sear or grill the marinated chicken. Sear or grill a bunch of pineapple rings. Toast yer buns. Mix together a little bit of mayo with teriyaki sauceDO YOU WANT TO HEAR A STORYomg.

So, a long time ago (and my sister is going to murder me for this), she was making dinner for some friends (I wasn’t there, thank the freaking baby ponies), and she was preparing chicken of some sort. She’d been marinating her chicken all afternoon, then removed her chicken to grill it, right? THEN, she takes the marinade in the bag, and proceeds to pour it into small cups. A dude that was standing near goes, “Hey, Barb – what are you doing with that chicken marinade?” And she goes, “Oh, it’s our dipping sauce! Instead of wasting the marinade, I figured we’d use it to dip our chicken in.” He like, basically barfed. Then gasped. Then barfed again and reached over to her and was like, “WUT. NO. STOP. SIT DOWN.” And guided her to the light.

What if he hadn’t noticed her?!

I have no idea how long she’d be doing this before that dinner (apparently some time), but I will never stop making fun of her for it. And simultaneously hurling at the thought.

The end.

So you uh, won’t do that here. You dump that marinade like whoa.

But you will mix together a little bit of mayo and teriyaki sauce and make a nice little sandwich spread for your face!

Layer it up, boo. Bottom bun, teriyaki mayo, chicken, swiss, lettuce, onion, BACON and pineapple. Top bun. Boom.

But here’s a little side step that will take it to 11. Stick the sams under the broiler so the cheese melts – THEN layer on the rest. This will make you so happy.

As for the sweet potato fries – crazy simple. Thinly sliced, tiny drizzle of oil and salt, bake at 400 for about 45 minutes. Ba da bing.

Honestly, there’s nothing super magical about any individual step or ingredient. But when it’s AWL TUGETHER, you will not understand how a sandwich can make you cry like a baby. I think it has something to do with bacon.

I think.

I know.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken breasts (split in half lengthwise to make thinner)
  • 3 Tbs. Teriyaki sauce
  • 3 Tbs. pineapple juice (from a 20 oz can)
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 6 slices bacon, rendered until crispy, but leave a Tbs. of grease in the pan
  • 6 pineapple slices (from the same 20 oz can)
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 hamburger buns (wheat, sesame, your choice!), split and toasted
  • 2 Tbs. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbs. Teriyaki sauce
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Romaine lettuce leaves

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken in a large plastic bag, and add the teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice and brown sugar. Seal and toss the chicken with the marinade. Let it rest in the fridge for at least an hour.
  2. Heat a large skillet (or indoor grill) over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken in the reserved bacon grease on one side (covered) for five minutes. Flip and sear another four minutes. Remove from the pan and let rest.
  3. Place the pineapple rings in the skillet and cook until you get good sear marks on both sides, about six minutes total.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayo and teriyaki sauce. Spread the mix on the toasted hamburger buns.
  5. Then layer! Bottom bun, sauce, chicken breast, a slice of Swiss cheese. At this point slide the sandwiches under the broiler to melt the cheese. Then keep layering with lettuce, onion, bacon and seared pineapple. Top bun (with some mayo!) and inhale.
  6. Makes 6 sandwiches.

    My husband loves anything Hawaiian (but that usually involves ham and pineapple on my blessed pizza, no thank you) but these look right up our alley. OMG your sister and the dipping sauce lol I'm surprised she hadn't gotten salmonella up to that point.

    People do stupid shit with food all the time. I will never forget the Christmas that my now ex mother-in-law put the turkey in the oven on Christmas eve and cook it for a couple of hours and took it out and put it in the fridge and said she was going to finish cooking it the next day! I almost stroked out and couldn't say anything because of the nature of our relationship but I did everything in my power to keep my five-year-old son from eating it. Thank God she had ham too and that's what he wanted!!!!

    Chicken sandwich to say is very tasty and very strange mouth. So far I've only eaten pork sandwiches. But now I have changed the taste of breakfast for my husband and my children. Grilled chicken meat and very tasty. Feeling not fatty as pork. If you have not tried then please try. It was really cool. ludo king, bubble am

    The ginger is not there as a palate cleanser. It is there to fight any type bacteria from the raw fish. When dealing with a high end sushi chef, they will brush on whatever sauce they wish you to have the experience. Soy sauce, Ponzu. I’m here in Tokyo now. Was just certified as a sushi chef myself. Still so much to learn! If your interested in some of my sushi dishes, I’ve been posting on my FB page. Jabberwocky Foods Incsanta ana boulevard

    I think the biggest problem for 18 year olds investing is that it’s not on their radar unless their parents teach them for it to be. I am going to speak to high school classes soon, and this is definitely a topic I want to bring up in hopes of influencing students who don’t have those influences at home.El Gregal Curridabat

    They really do light up when you start running the numbers for them. Most don’t think they’d ever be able to retire a millionaire. Start investing early enough and stay consistent with it and it’s certainly achievable. lisa

    I really enjoyed this post. (Always awaiting your next one) Laughing my way through. As an avowed serial painter, I have learned never to use tape. It adds like 16 extra unnecessary hours to a job. Also guilty of not painting the ceilings and completely regretting it later. Lazy. Do you mind if I put a link to this post on my blog? I would love to share as I am painting my stairway hall from top to floors and you have a very witty tutorial here.

    Hi, We like to drive the boat to deserted beaches and enjoy picnics and playing in the sand. The cold water scares most boaters away (and the lake is surrounded by national forest, so no houses directly on the lake), so often we are the only ones out there! There are some warmer reservoirs in southern Colorado that are better for swimming and not quite. Lisa
