I got this grilled chicken recipe from a friend while living in Hawaii.  It sizzles with the flavors of brown sugar, ginger and soy sauce.  Huli means “TURN” in Hawaiian.

Grilled Huli Huli Chicken Recipe

Grilled Huli Huli Chicken

1 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup ketchup

¾ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup sherry or chicken broth

2 ½ tsp. minced fresh gingerroot

1 ½ tsp. minced garlic

24 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 5 lbs.)


In a small bowl, mix the first six (6) ingredients.  Reserve 1 1/3 cups for basting; cover and refrigerate.  Divide remaining marinade between two large resealable plastic bags.  Add 12 chicken thighs to each; seal bags and turn to coat.  Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

Drain and discard marinade from chicken.  Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.

Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink; baste occasionally with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes.          12 servings
