Pineapple Chicken Teriyaki Sandwiches

This is one of those yummy go-to recipes in our home that is so simple to throw together on a busy weeknight. My kids actually beg for this dinner too!  So... cheap, affordable, fast and big "mmmmm" sounds from the whole family ranks this meal a perfect 10 in our house!

Start by slaving away over a hot stove, cooking and shredding chicken breasts tossing one of those amazing pre-cooked rotisserie chickens in your cart at the grocery store.  Then just chop it up before preparing the sauce.

In a large skillet or sauce pan, add the following ingredients and heat:
  • 2 Tsp Finely Chopped Green Onion
  • 1/2 c teriyaki sauce
  • 2/3 c Pineapple Juice (I just use the juice from the can of sliced pineapples you'll need later)
  • 2/3 c Barbecue Sauce
  • 4 Tbs Brown Sugar
  • season with salt, pepper and garlic powder 
I add a little cornstarch (2 tsp?) and water mixture to thicken it as well.  Once it has thickened, add the chicken to warm. The chunks of chicken will fall apart as it heats to give it the "shredded chicken" texture. 

You will also need:
  • hamburger buns
  • can of pineapple slices in juice

Add a yummy pineapple slice and toss some chips and fruit on the side and they are ready to serve. These are amazing! But hey, don't take my word for it --> try them for yourself!
