Course: Sandwiches
Cuisine: Grilling
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 canned pineapple rings
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 6 onion rolls split and toasted or grilled
  • 2 large tomatoes sliced
  • Romaine lettuce for sandwiches
  • 1/2 cup 1000 island dressing
  • 1 cup Hawaiian-style marinade such as Lawry's
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
  1. Season the chicken breasts with the kosher salt and black pepper. Put them in a resealable plastic bag and pour in the Hawaiian-style marinade. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Light a charcoal barbeque or heat a gas grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grate.
  3. Shake any excess marinade off the chicken and grill them, turning once or twice until they are cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
  4. About 5 minutes before the chicken has finished cooking, put the pineapple rings on the grill. Cook them, turning once until they are heated through.
  5. Put the grilled pineapple on the chicken breast, then put 1 slice of the provolone cheese on each ring. Close the cover to the grill and let the cheese just slightly start to melt.
  6. Put the chicken with the pineapple and cheese on a toasted onion roll and add the lettuce and tomato. Spread the top of the buns with the 1000 island dressing and put it on top of the sandwich. You may need toothpicks to hold the top on.

Food For Thought – This type of sandwich is open to a lot of adaptations to suit your individual taste.

It is well suited to getting spiced up just a bit with pepper jack cheese in place of the provolone, chipotle mayo instead of the 1000 island and hot barbecue sauce, such as KC Masterpiece Hot’n Spicy replacing the Hawaiian-style marinade.

But don’t leave out the pineapple rings – it just wouldn’t be the same!

You really need to try this Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Good To Know – The longer that chicken is marinated, the more tender it will be.

This sandwich will still be good if you have only 1 hour for marinating time, but you should add 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to speed up the tenderizing processes.
