Hawaiian Chicken Wraps: An Easy Summer Meal

Light and easy meals are perfect for the hot days of summer. Combine bbq with fresh pineapple for a delicious wrap everyone will enjoy!

Nothing says summer dinner like good ol’ BBQ! Then throw in some delicious pineapple and I am sold. My family has had a recipe for Hawaiian Chicken for as long as I can remember, and it’s also made with pineapple, but it’s very different.

During the summer, I like to eat light meals most of the time such as salads and grilled chicken and cool foods. Of course, not everything can fit that category, but this still felt like a fairly light meal when we were eating it.

Our original meal was made as wraps and the chicken was warm. But we almost always have leftovers since the boys don’t eat a lot just yet, and I had some of this the next day as a salad. Instead of putting it on a tortilla shell, I chopped some lettuce and added the bbq chicken cold with the cheese and pineapple and it was really good that way, too. It’s perfect for someone who needs a quick lunch at work or if you don’t have a way to easily reheat your food.

Since pineapple is in season and easy to get cheap right now, we used a fresh pineapple and our handy-dandy corer to cut up the fruit we needed. If that isn’t an option or you want to save the time, you can buy a can of chopped pineapple. When you use a fresh one, there will be extra, but we all devour pineapple, so that isn’t a problem at my house.

Do you want to know the best part about this meal? I know, it already sounds so great…. but there’s more! Hawaiian Chicken Wraps can be done in less than 30 minutes AND only uses one pan! It’s even quicker if you have the chicken already cut up, or use your kitchen shears to make it quick work.

Step by Step

Start by heating a medium skillet over medium-high heat and add one tablespoon of olive oil. Then put the chicken in the pan and season it with salt and pepper. Fry the chicken, stirring occasionally until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown on the outside.

Turn off the heat and add your choice of bbq sauce to the pan and coat the chicken.

Fill each tortilla shell with a scoop of chicken, mozzarella cheese, some chopped pineapple, and a bit of lettuce. Roll it up like a burrito and use a toothpick to secure if needed. They tend to open up because it isn’t easy to fit all of that delicious food in one wrap. Serve these immediately while they are warm in the wrap.

  1. This looks so good! BBQ chicken is my favorite and I always eat it with pineapple so I know I would love this wrap!

  2. this looks delicious! I love wraps all year round but especially during summer. I will swap the chicken for a vegan version,and see how it turns out!

  3. I just love wraps. Infact, whenever i don’t feel like having my meal i order a wrap from a nearby restaurant and have it. As a vegetarian, i don’t have lot many varieties to choose from but my favorite is bbq paneer, hara bhara kabab and mixed vegetable wraps.

  4. I absolutely love pineapple! This would be something that I really need to add into my life especially since it is awfully hot here.
