So delicious! Probably the best of any recipe I’ve made this week. I ended up using arugula instead of basil leaves and cut my chicken into strips. If you don’t like using mayonnaise, you could easily use a substitute, like ranch, teriyaki sauce, or barbecue sauce.


  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 4 (½ inch thick) slices fresh pineapple
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted
  • Light mayo (optional)
  • 4 large basil leaves


  1. 1. Prepare grill.
  2. 2. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until done, brushing occasionally with lime juice. Grill pineapple 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned.
  3. 3. Spread mayonnaise on bottom halves of buns, if desired. Top each with 1 chicken breast half, 1 pineapple slice, 1 basil leaf, and 1 bun top. Serve immediately.
