BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Grilled Cheese is the perfect ooey-gooey Hawaiian style grilled cheese sandwich. Delicious!
I was reading an article last week that mentioned that if you add any ingredients to a grilled cheese, other than cheese, than it’s not really a grilled cheese. I didn’t really get it. If you add stuff, but still have cheese, and still ‘grill’ it, why isn’t it grilled cheese? I have a feeling this is a widely debated topic, however, I will still refer to any cheesy sandwich as grilled cheese, and also mention the additions, such as this BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Grilled Cheese.
Not too long ago I was making a similar dish, only inside a quesadilla. I thought that this combination would be delicious piled into a sandwich and grilled to perfection. Moist white meat shredded chicken, coated in savory sweet BBQ sauce, delicious juicy pineapple slices, and rich extra sharp cheddar cheese….so perfect. While we don’t eat chicken, one of my friends was happy to be the guinea pig and try this out for me. Not only did she say this was the best grilled cheese she had ever eaten, but she also said that she would love to try this combination of ingredients every way possible…on a quesadilla, on a bun, on a bagel…you know, the usual. If you are scared of bread (not me, I love carbs), then you could also just take all these ingredients and throw them on top of some lettuce…actually, I am going to do that…stay tuned for that blog post.
As with any grilled cheese sandwich, make sure you use a delicious pure cheese…not of this fake shredded cheese with tons of additives. Sure, it’s okay to use in other recipes, but when the cheese is really standing out in the recipe, you need it to taste great and also melt really well. pre-shredded cheeses have additives so that they don’t clump together in the bag, but you need the cheese to melt together so pre-shredded cheese really isn’t ideal for melting. Do yourself a favor and buy some good cheese!
