BBQ Chicken Pineapple Sandwich

I think I’ve told you all in the past, that sometimes my recipes come together just on a whim. I look in the refrigerator and see what’s in there. I stand there for about 5 minutes, give or take a few minutes, then I look in the freezer, and then to the pantry, and back to the fridge. Sometimes this goes on about two or three more times until inspiration smacks me in the face. Does anyone else go through this?

Jon suggested grilling chicken. We at least had that part figured out, but I wanted something other than the usual grilled chicken. To the fridge!..and freezer…and pantry…

Luckily, we had a pineapple that needed cut up and some bacon that needed to be used. Ah-ha! BBQ Chicken Pineapple Sandwiches were born!
