Marinated, grilled chicken is topped with grilled pineapple and cheese. It may sound a little strange, but it is very tasty!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
  • 1 cup Hawaiian style marinade
  • 6 pineapple rings
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 6 onion rolls, split
  • 6 tablespoons thousand island salad dressing
  • 6 leaves romaine lettuce
  • 6 slices tomato

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place the chicken pieces into a large resealable bag and pour in the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  2. 2 Preheat a grill for medium-high heat. When hot, lightly oil the grate. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade.
  3. 3 Grill the chicken pieces until cooked through, about 10 minutes, turning once. 5 minutes before they are done, place the pineapple rings on the grill and cook for a couple of minutes per side. Place the pineapple slices on top of the pieces of chicken and top with a slice of cheese. Close the lid to the grill and allow the cheese to melt for a minute. Toast the buns, if desired.
  4. 4 To assemble the sandwiches, place the chicken, pineapple and cheese onto the bottom buns. Top with lettuce and tomato. Spread the thousand island dressing onto the top buns and place onto the sandwiches.

  1. I'd been looking for some time to duplicate a sandwich my husband and I first had while on vacation in Florida a few years ago. This is the taste we remember we both love it. The Thousand Island dressing makes it great. We like using a soft bun. If you can't find Hawaiian marinade I've - Read more ...
  2. These were reallly good. I used motzerella instead of provolone great for lunch or dinner.
  3. 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.
  4. This recipe was a hit. Didn't use thousand island used chipotle mayo like another user suggested. Made my own marinade with pineapple juice soy sauce garlic and onion powder since I couldn't find commerial marinade. Used the frozen breasts and marinaded them overnight.
  5. 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 - Read more ...
  6. 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 - Read more ...
  7. 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...
  8. 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 - Read more ...
  9. 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!
