I concocted this burger while craving a juicy burger with great flavor. Next time, I would like to mince the jalapenos and add them into the ground chicken patties…when the kids are not joining us for dinner.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add red onion, garlic, and ginger; saute until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

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

  • Combine chicken, panko, teriyaki sauce, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add cooled onion and mix gently with your hands until fully incorporated. Create 4 burger patties.

  • Grill burgers on the preheated grill until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side, adding provolone slices towards the end of the cooking time so they can melt. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the burgers should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Grill pineapple slices alongside the burgers until warm, about 1 minute per side.

  • While the burgers are cooking, prepare hamburger buns with a light smear of mayonnaise. Place cooked burgers on buns and top with pineapple slices and jalapeno peppers.

Cook's Notes:

You can cook the burgers on an indoor grill pan on the stovetop, if desired.

Hawaiian buns may be nice.

I really enjoyed these burgers a lot! The fruitiness of the pineapple, the heat of the jalapeno, the creaminess of the cheese, and the hit of ginger you get from the burgers themselves, all come together in a perfect flavor harmony. I did find that the burger patties didn't have a very strong flavor when eaten alone, however. I felt the could have used more seasoning, maybe more teriyaki sauce, and since I used about 2 tsps of minced ginger, I'd say more ginger as well. I also topped the burger with lettuce, tomato, and extra sauteed onion--and would do so again. Overall, a great variation on the classic burger, and definitely worth making again! (Note: I used ground dark chicken meat, and that made the burgers stay nice and juicy!) Read More
