Sesame Ginger Teriyaki Chicken Burger Loaf Style

This is one hard to eat burger, but it is so tasty!
I like to keep the ingredients for this burger in my freezer and pantry as it really is so fast to prepare and it is always a pleaser.
MARINADE
1 cup Teriyaki Sauce
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 tsp green onions-chopped fine
2 tbsp honey
Mix together well and pour over 4 chicken breasts. Marinade for at least an hour.
**if you don't want to make the marinade from scratch use ready made (Costco has a fantastic one) or use your favorite BBQ sauce**
BBQ chicken, using the sauce as a baste and remove to a foil lined dish to keep warm while you assemble the rest of the burger.
MAYO SPREAD
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp teriyaki sauce
Stir together and set aside.
SAUTEED PINEAPPLE
6 pineapple rings
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
In a nonstick fry pan over medium heat saute pineapple in the teriyaki for about 10 minutes. They will get alittle bit stick as they almost caramelize.
THE BREAD
1 foil wrapped garlic bread
8 large slices Monterey Jack cheese
Open garlic bread and place on a large baking sheet.( I remove some of the garlic butter as I find it is way too much.)
Broil the bread until the butter just start to melt. Remove from oven and spread with mayo. Place 4 slices of cheese on each side of bread and broil until cheese is really bubbly and bread is toasted.
ASSEMBLE YOUR BURGER
Place paper thin slices of red onion on top of the cheese on the bottom part of the loaf and then add your chicken and pineapple. To serve put the top part of the loaf on and slice wide pieces.
Try to pick it up and eat it, but you may need a fork and knife.
I like to serve this with California Salad. I'll post that recipe soon.
