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

"My family loves this recipe. I reduced the amount of ingredients to fit 4 boneless chicken breast and I have an indoor grill. Favor is fabulous"

"I needed to come up with a quick dinner tonight. A friend posted this recipe on her FB page and it looked delicious. I used chicken breast instead of thighs and heated the marinade to pour over the chicken. I also used it on the chicken as it cooked on my stove top grill pan. It was a big hit! I served it over RiceARoni chicken flavored pasta. It would've been better had I had the time to allow it to marinate. This one's a keeper for sure!"

"Hands down, the best grilled chicken I've ever eaten. I didn't change a thing, other than scaling back all quantities for less chicken. The full recipe will be fantastic for summer get-togethers with more of a crowd. I'm already imagining using some of the basting sauce on some grilled pineapple next time!"

"This is a go-to recipe in our house, especially when we have people over in the summer. Whenever I make it, people always ask me for the recipe.

The only change I make is to use boneless chicken breasts rather than chicken thighs."
