I love having grilled chicken sandwiches in the summer. It’s nice to get out and use the grill to cook instead of heating up my kitchen and the kids get to swim some more while I cook. So that by the time dinner is over they are ready to wind down for bed. That makes me like them even more! It is a must to change up the chicken so my family doesn’t get bored and I get to keep my cool kitchen.
These Luau Chicken Sandwiches are so tasty. Our friends were over the night we had them and they loved them. They were unsure of the flavor combo with the grilled pineapple, bacon and mayo but they gave them a try and were happy they did. The flavors work so well together that I am craving one now as I look at this picture! 🙂
