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
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!
