1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons Dole pineapple juice
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tablespoons butter
8 Hawaiian slider rolls
1 tablespoon butter
1 small onion, diced
3 tablespoons sugar

FOR TERIYAKI CHICKEN:
Combine teriyaki sauce and pineapple juice in a small bowl. Pour over chicken thighs, cover and refrigerate for 1-8 hours.
Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to 350°F.
Drain marinade from chicken and grill 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked.
Cut Hawaiian rolls in half and brush with butter. Place on grill for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown.

FOR PINEAPPLE JAM:
While chicken marinates, heat butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and cook for 5 minutes, until soft and translucent.
Add sugar, vinegar and pineapple to saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, or until thick. Stir in chopped Fresno chiles and jalapeños.
