skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
Hawaiian style marinade
onion rolls, split
thousand island salad dressing
This recipe was not only easy but a crowd HIT! I marinaded the chicken overnight with Lawry's Hawaiian Marinade. The chicken was so tender. The pineapple slices and provolone were great togther! SO tasty! A definite cook book add!
Not very good at all - I've had this type of sandwich in restaurants and loved it, but I didn't think the thousand island dressing went well with the marinade and pinapple. Needs something spicier...
I used this as a base recipe and added my own touches. I pounded the boneless, skinless chicken breasts between two pieces of saran wrap to make them tender and less thick. I used my fav. teriyaki sauce to marinate and I also sauteed some sliced mushrooms then added some sauce to the mushrooms. I grilled the chicken on wood chunk briquettes (the smoky flavor was amazing). I use swiss or provolone cheese and grill the pineapple per the recipe. I used plain mayo instead of thousand island. My sister suggested to use chipoltle mayo to add a little kick. I may try that next time.
Great recipe to add your own touches to!
These were really good but I did make some changes....I skipped on the tomatoes and lettuce (the sandwich is already juicy from the pineapple). Also, I didn't have any onion rolls so instead I used sesame rolls and then added onion strings to the sandwich(I really recommend this addition). Also, I'm not a fan of thousand island dressing so I used dijon mustard and instead of the provolone I used muenster jalapeno cheese! I realize that this is a lot of changes but I just made it according to what I had in the refrigerator and my BF and I loved them!
I think that the 1000 Island dressing would have to be a personal taste - not one that appeals to me. BUT I do recommend trying Swiss cheese with the chicken burger! A local restaraunt here uses Swiss on their chicken/pineapple burger, and it is DELISH! Something so good about the swiss and the pineapple together. Trust me!!! Go reg mayo though!
These were reallly good. I used motzerella instead of provolone great for lunch or dinner.
This sandwich was very tasty. A solid four in my opinion, but my husband's praise bumped it up to five! The thousand island dressing nicely complements the sweet chicken and pineapple.
I was looking for a recipe that reminded me of a "Hawaiian" sandwich my kids loved in Belgium. This came very close to hitting the mark; just made a few changes to make it just like what we ate there. Thank you!!
