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

"Tasty, good way to make grilled chicken. Followed the recipe as is and didn't think it needed to be altered at all."

"Great sauce. I browned 4 chicken thighs in a skillet . Meanwhile I made 1/2 the sauce in a saucepan, reduced it slightly then added the sauce to the skillet over the chicken. It continued to reduce while the chicken continued to cook. I served it all over rice. It was very tasty and tender. Quick and easy.. servings 2"
