Hawaiian Chicken Burger Recipe

One of my favourite meals to BBQ (although I do not make these often enough), is Hawaiian Chicken Burgers:

Hawaiian Chicken Burger Ingredients:

  • Grilled Chicken (boneless/skinless thighs or breasts)
  • Grilled Pineapple (peaches works too)
  • Burger Toppings (such as cheese, mayonnaise and lettuce)
  • Teriyaki Sauce
  • Buns

I prefer making my Hawaiian Chicken Burgers with thinner cuts of chicken to cut down on cooking time and ensure they are cooked evenly.  I also prefer the meat being an even thickness through the burger.

One thing I hate when eating BBQ’ed food, is tasting burnt.  I tend to have my BBQ on the lowest setting.  My rule has always been, if its too hot for my hand a couple of inches above the grill, its too hot for my food.

SOF had packs of thin sliced chicken breast for $11 this year (which is what was used in the photo) and I threw two pieces of chicken onto my burger.  These pieces of chicken cooked in about 12-15 minutes because of how thin they are.  A full chicken breast will take 30-35 minutes and the chicken thighs about 25-30 minutes.

The pineapple takes between 5 and 10 minutes to grill depending on thickness which I throw onto the grill when the chicken is 5-10 minutes from being fully cooked.  At the same time, I start to sauce my chicken.

Once the chicken and pineapple are cooked, assemble your burger with your favourite toppings and enjoy!
