Grilled Huli Huli Chicken

Grilled Huli Huli Chicken - the juiciest and most delicious Hawaiian chicken you'll ever try! Great alone or served on rice or noodles!!

Have you ever tried Huli Huli Chicken before?? I first tried it years ago at a Hawaiian restaurant not realizing what it was, exactly. I just knew it was a very delicious, juicy chicken that I thought was amazing. Fast forward several years to our time in Houston, Texas and we had some friends from church invite us over for dinner. They had lived in Hawaii for several years and the husband was an avid BBQ enthusiast. One of the meats he had cooked up for us was this huli huli chicken, and I fell back in love with the dish and knew I needed the recipe. Unfortunately, it was recipe that was given by a friend who asked them not to share it, but with some research and reading lots of reviews, I was able to find a recipe that I think tastes just like it!

This chicken is so flavorful and so versatile. You can eat it as is, or you can serve it over rice or noodles. I need to cook it up again and serve it in a salad with almonds, fried wontons and an asian vinaigrette. I think it would be amazing!! More than anything, I’m just so glad that I can make this recipe from home and don’t have to go to a restaurant to get this mouth-watering chicken. 🙂

I’m seriously addicted to this chicken recipe. It’s so good!! Be sure you have plenty of sauce reserved because it’s even better when it’s still juicy. Don’t say I didn’t warn you though, this chicken is addicting!!

    Kathryn carr :

    So does this really need to be made with thighs? Have you tried it with breast?

    Is the ginger ground or fresh?
