I was walking thru the grocery store and saw a pile of fresh pineapples from Hawaii and figured I would skip the canned pineapple slices. It is summer after all. So I sharpened my knife to cut thru the thick skin. I cut thick horizontal slices. Then cut off all of the skin around the edges, and used a mini round cutter to remove the core.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • For a super fast meal, use store-bought teriyaki sauce, buns, and canned pineapple slices.
  • When you flatten the chicken breasts it is only to even them out so they cook evenly, not to make them super thin.
  • I personally like mayonnaise on my sandwiches but I leave that up to you.
  • When you have more time on your hands you might want to try my Homemade Teriyaki Sauce and Hamburger Buns.
