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

"I've made these chicken thighs about 100 times. Sometimes I forget the basting sauce and sometimes I don't. It's good either way. I always get asked for the recipe too. This is my go to potluck dish."

"Used it with some thin cut chicken breasts and had excellent flavor with the grill marks. Can see why it would be great with thighs or wings."

"I have to admit, I tried this recipe because I thought the name was so cute. I was going to a football party so I used wings instead of thighs. It was a big hit. They licked the platter clean!"
