I am so excited for Summer BBQs! The friends, the fun, the FOOD. It’s one of my favorite times of the year! These Grilled Hawaiian Chicken Burgers are the perfect meal to bring to the party.

These ground chicken burgers are topped with pineapple, BBQ sauce, ham, and served on hawaiian rolls! It’s such a delicious mix of flavors, and I just can’t get enough of them.

Lots of amazing ingredients are packed into these grilled Hawaiian BBQ chicken burgers, but it only takes a few steps and about 30 minutes to make them. It’s an easy summer recipe to throw on the grill on weekends, or any night of the week.

  1. Start by combing ingredients to make the ground chicken mixture for the burgers. Mix ground chicken, BBQ sauce, provolone, breadcrumbs, cilantro, garlic, pineapple juice, and salt & pepper.
  2. Form the mixture into 4 patties (1/4 lb. burgers) or 8 smaller patties (sliders).
  3. Grill them on medium heat for about 6-8 minutes on each side. Grill the pineapple slices for a couple of minutes alongside the burgers.
  4. When done grilling, assemble the burgers. Start with Hawaiian rolls or buns, then place the chicken burgers, swiss cheese, grilled pineapple, lettuce, ham, and BBQ sauce on each one.

Ground Chicken Burgers

I had never made ground chicken burgers before this recipe, but I was so happy with the results that I just kept going with it. Ground chicken is very lean and low calorie, so these little Hawaiian BBQ chicken sliders are a guilt-free treat. Definitely a healthier alternative to beef burgers and red meat. And don’t forget to try our Chicken Burgers with Feta and Sun-dried Tomatoes too. Both recipes will be a hit!
