This tasty sandwich is like a luau on a bun!

Ingredients

Directions

  • Place chicken breasts into a plastic zipper bag with soy sauce, seal the bag, and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes. While chicken is marinating, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate, and set aside. Spread cut sides of hamburger buns with butter.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove the chicken from the soy sauce, and discard the excess soy sauce. Place the chicken breasts onto the preheated grill, and grill until chicken shows good grill marks, is no longer pink inside, and the juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes per side. When chicken is almost done, brush each piece generously on both sides with teriyaki sauce to finish grilling. Place a slice of Swiss cheese on each chicken breast, and cover with a lid to help the cheese melt onto the chicken.

  • While chicken is grilling, spread the buns open on the grill and cook until toasted and showing grill lines, about 2 minutes. Set the buns aside.

  • To assemble, spread the grilled sides of each bun with mayonnaise, and top each bottom bun with a cooked chicken breast, 1 1/2 slices of bacon, a slice of pineapple, a slice from a head of lettuce, a slice of tomato, and the top bun.

Cook's Note:

If you don't want to grill, loosely roll up marinated chicken breast with teriyaki sauce in foil, and bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Then open foil, and melt cheese on top.

Tip

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I used ground turkey patties because my family doesn't like to eat chicken breasts in a sandwich. Very tasty and everyone agreed they would eat them again. Grill the pineapple too and if you want an extra treat put the pineapple in a bowl with its juice and brown sugar before placing it on the grill then put it on the sandwich.

I grilled the pineapple slices which added to the open-face presentation. Not being a big fan of bacon (or Spam) I omitted it. I found that a single slice of Swiss cheese wasn't sufficient to influence the taste of sandwich and recommend two slices of Swiss or trying a less mild cheese for anyone trying this burger. Overall I found this to be a pretty bland sandwich.

This was good but I think it needed brown sugar added to the soy sauce. The soy was a little over powering. My daughter said it needed a little sweetness. I will try this the next time I make this recipe. Thank you for sharing.

My husband and I really loved this recipe. I did cook the chicken in a crock pot on high for almost 4 hours soaking in the soy sauce & I did add brown sugar to it as well. I did grill the chicken and I did grill the bacon and put it together just as the recipe stated. It all came out very tasty and will be making this many times again!

Simple and great tasting! You can even shred the chicken if you don't like eating chicken breast whole.

Wow! I loved this sandwich. I marinated the chicken with Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce & Marinade. I put it in a ziploc bag and add 1 fresh clove of garlic grated and 4 green onions sliced. I sprinkled brown sugar on the pineapple and grilled that for about 4 minutes. I used a thicker teriyaki sauce to brush on my chicken at the end. It was also from Kikkoman but had sesame seeds in it. I took a taste of the chicken when it came off the grill and it was fantastic however; when I put it on my sandwich I felt the mayo overpowered it and all I tasted was mayo and not the great teriyaki flavors. I will definitely skip the mayo next time. I also didn't use the bacon & tomato. I was out of bacon and was afraid of pairing the tomato with the pineapple but I might give it a try next time.
