Grilled Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches will quickly become your new favorite chicken sandwich and are packed with a homemade pineapple barbecue sauce, juicy grilled chicken, grilled pineapple, red onions, and more!
This sandwich is everything, it's seriously delicious. I mean it's got grilled chicken and pineapple all in a quick and easy barbecue sauce flavored with pineapple juice, garlic, ginger, and Sriracha if you like things spicy. Plus it couldn't be easier to make. The sauce takes all of 5 minutes to put together and the chicken takes about 10 minutes on the grill. That's it to have the most amazing grilled chicken sandwiches.
If this recipe looks kind of familiar, it's based off this Grilled Pineapple Barbecue Chicken I shared a couple weeks back. We loved that meal so much, I have been making it on repeat and to switch things up one night, we made sandwiches instead and they were so good I had to share them. I have also made that recipe with pork chops after a reader suggested it and they came out amazing as well. I think the moral of the story is that anything tastes delicious with this doctored up barbecue sauce and grilled pineapple.
Another quick note, I got a few questions asking if it is really necessary to grill the pineapple. While you could skip this step, I really recommend taking the extra step and grilling it. The pineapple caramelizes on the outside and gets a nice smoky flavor from the grill that really adds something to the dish. It doesn't really take any extra time either since you will already be cooking the chicken.
