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 made this recipe as written but cut it in half. Cooked it on my indoor grill because of a roaring thunderstorm. Served it with a seven spice rice. Very delicious! Will make it again.

This is the best BBQ chicken I have ever had. I have been using it for several years now and every time I made it, people ask me what I used to marinate my chicken. I also used it on pork tenderloin. Delicious!!!!! It is my to go recipe. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.
