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. —Sharon Boling, Coronado, California

"This chicken - IS...AMAZING!! I have made it upwards of 5 or 6 times now, and it never gets old. I've used both chicken breasts and chicken legs and it is delightful in any form! Instead of sherry/broth I've just used water, and have used ground ginger in place of the fresh gingeroot. A truly delicious chicken dish!"
