Huli Huli ChickenPosted by in Food
I’m still in love with the food we had in Hawaii, so from time to time, I try to recreate that trip on our dinner table. I came upon this recipe in July Taste of Home (a magazine in which I rarely find something I want to make in!) and really enjoyed it – simple to make and delicious to eat. Here’s my adaptation.
Huli Huli Chicken Breasts
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup organic ketchup
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cooking sherry (substitute chicken broth if you don’t have any)
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
3/4 tsp minced garlic
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Mix the marinade in a bowl, then reserve 1/2 cup for basting or serving. Place chicken breasts in ziploc bag and pour the marinade over them. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Grill the chicken, basting with the reserved sauce, or heat the reserved sauce and serve it as a sauce with the chicken. This is great with rice. The leftover chicken is delicious in salads or on sandwiches. I make a double batch and we eat the leftovers for lunch all week.

This is easy! I love the sound of it and all the ingredients. Gonna try to tomorrow night.
This sounds delicious and easy. I’ll be trying this one soon.
Those look soooo easy and tasty. If I wanted to add a kick, any suggestions? What do they generally use in Hawaii?
I didn’t have spicy food in Hawaii really at all, but then again, I just don’t like spicy food so I wasn’t looking for it! I think you add ancho chili paste to this to make it hot.
