Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches

You know that when I participate in the recipe swaps its with some lovely ladies from a cooking board I spend too much a lot of time on, right? Well on the day you see this go live on my blog, everyone else who participated is also posting their recipe as well and a few days later our awesome host Sarah compiles everything together and does a recap of the recipes for the swap. So you really don't get just one recipe to make since I've yet to have participated in a swap where I didn't immediately print out some recipes that the other participants have made.

Such was the case with this sandwich. Apparently I'm not the only one who thought it looked abso-freaking-lutely delicious considering 7 of us put it on our menus for the following week. Now that's saying something!

Ingredients:
    • 6 thin chicken cutlets, cut in half
    • 1 large can pineapple rings
    • 6 slices provolone cheese
    • 6 hamburger buns
    • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
    • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
    • 3 tsp. Dijon mustard

Directions:
1. Whisk together the juice from the canned pineapple, soy sauce, brown sugar and Dijon mustard in a container with a lid. Add the chicken and marinate overnight.
2. Prepare your grill. Discard marinade and cook the chicken for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through. Add the cheese slices to the chicken and let melt. Grill the pineapple on both sides.
3. Place each chicken cutlet on a bun and top with 1-2 pineapple rings.

Holy crap these were as delicious as they look! You don't need any condiments on this sandwich at all. The juice of the pineapple combined with the saltiness of the soy sauce makes the chicken incredibly juicy and flavorful. And for something that is so simple to make, I can see these sandwiches on the menu quite often in the future!
