* 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* bbq sauce
* 4 slices swiss cheese
* 4 slices pineapple (1/2″ thick)
* 4 whole-wheat kaiser rolls
Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag, add enough bbq sauce to cover, and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (or up to 12 hours).
Heat a grill; it’s ready when you can’t hold your hand above the grate for longer than 5 seconds. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the grill. (Discard any remaining marinade.) Grill for 4 to 5 minutes, flip, and immediately add the cheese to each breast. Continue cooking until the cheese is melted and the chicken is lightly charred and feels firm to the touch. Remove and set aside.
While the chicken is resting, place the pineapple slices and rolls on the grill. Toast the rolls lightly and cook the pineapple until it’s soft and caramelized, about 2 minutes on each side. Top each roll with chicken and, if you like, drizzle on a bit of bbq sauce from the bottle. Top the sandwiches with pineapple
Heat 1/4 cup of the oil in small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and chile peppers and cook, stirring frequently, until just brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Process with cilantro, lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and black pepper in blender or food processor until smooth.
Put chicken in shallow dish and spread half the garlic mixture over all sides of chicken. .
Return skillet to medium heat and add remaining tablespoon oil. Lift each breast and let excess marinade drip off. Discard extra marinade. Add chicken to hot pan and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Brown on one side, about 5 minutes, then flip and finish cooking, 3 or 4 minutes longer.
Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave on high 1 minute. Remove paper towels and keep tortillas warm. Cut chicken across the grain into 1/4″ slices and toss with onion in pan. Serve with tortillas.
