It’s warming up outside and camping season is starting! We are going on our first big camping trip this weekend for Memorial Day and have been mapping out our recipes. Since there is a large group of us who go every year, we love to keep the recipes simple and easy to prepare as well as easy for anyone to mix up according to their own taste. 

One of my favorite ways to do this is to incorporate Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce when grilling. There are so many gateway recipes that people of all cooking levels can try and it’s always a winner using it in my grilled recipes. You can use it in so many styles of recipes because of it’s versatile flavor profile and you can even grab the low sodium versions if you need to cut back on sodium. As an added bonus, Kikkoman® offers a variety of Gluten-Free products certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG).

For my assigned cooking night, this year I’ll be cooking up my super popular Hawaiian Chicken Burgers! There is so much flavor with the Kikkoman® Teriyaki  Marinade & Sauce with grilled pineapple, it’s always a crowd favorite and can be garnished in so many ways but my favorite is with bacon, avocado, and a bit of chili sauce for a kick, but my hubby prefers his with tomato and grilled onion.

To prep for the trip, I always head to Walmart since I know not only do they have the Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce as well as the Kikkoman® Traditionally Brewed Soy Sauce that I need, they have everything and more I need for cooking and camping!



We always pack along our grill when we camp for Memorial Day Weekend. It makes cooking a fun and social event. However, if you don’t have a grill, you can easily bake your chicken instead and still get a great result. I’ve done this several times over Winter when it’s too cold to grill!

Getting started is easy. I cut my chicken breasts in half so they are a better fit for the buns, and rarely can someone eat the whole chicken breast since this is such a filling entree.  Put your chicken breasts into a large Ziploc bag and pour your Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce in to cover the breasts. I used about half of the 15 oz. bottle to cover 3 large chicken breasts (6 halves). 



Squeeze out excess air from bag and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes. I let mine rest for about an hour to really soak in the rich flavor.



When you’re ready to start cooking, turn on your grill to medium heat. Place your breasts on the grill turning once after about 15 minutes. Cook until they reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees using a meat thermometer to check for doneness. 



Place your sliced pineapple on the grill the last 15 minutes. Grilling the pineapple brings out so much flavor and the juices in the pineapple! 



Doesn’t this chicken look amazing!

FYI… it also tastes amazing just like this chopped up over a fresh garden salad!

Time to assemble your Hawaiian Chicken Burger!

As I said, I put together mine with avocado, crispy bacon, and some chili sauce.
