Teriyaki Chicken Sub | Sandwiches are the best recipe idea for a quick lunch or light dinner. This chicken sub takes a twist from the classic recipe by pairing pineapple with teriyaki to add some sweet umami flavor. Dress with all your favorite sandwich toppings, then pack up your sandwich for a work lunch, plan an outdoor picnic in the park on a warm day, or cut into smaller portions for easy game day bites. Serve with a side salad or cup of soup for a bigger meal.
