Pineapple Chicken Burger with Wasabi Mayo

Pineapple Chicken Burger with Wasabi Mayo


  • 6 Chicken Breasts
  • 6 Burger Buns
  • 1 tsp Chives
  • 1 tsp Granulated Garlic
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Lite Soy Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. Pineapple Juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Honey
  • 6 Pineapple Rings
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Lite Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Wasabi Powder (Spicy!)
  • 1 tsp Sugar


    1. Combine the chives, granulated garlic, onion powder, soy sauce, pineapple juice, and honey as a marinade in a large baking dish or ziptop bag. Add chicken breasts and let marinate for 1-8 hours.

    2. Heat a large skillet or grill over medium-high heat. With tongs, remove the chicken from the marinade and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side (internal temperature of 165°).

    3. Meanwhile, season the pineapple rings with 1/4 tsp of black pepper, then use the olive oil to grill or sear the pineapple rings in a skillet for 1-2 minutes per side or until the pineapple begins to caramelize. Grill or toast the burger buns.

    4. In a small bowl, combine the lite mayonnaise, wasabi powder, and sugar for the wasabi spread.

    5. Serve with pineapple over the cooked chicken on a toasted bun; top with wasabi spread if you like a little heat!
