Grilled Huli Huli Chicken Recipe

Grilled Huli Huli Chicken Recipe

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. This sweet and savory glaze is fantastic on pork chops, too. —Sharon Boling, San Diego, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup sherry or chicken broth
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 24 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 5 pounds)

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, mix the first six ingredients. Reserve 1-1/3 cups for basting; cover and refrigerate. Divide remaining marinade between two large resealable plastic bags. Add 12 chicken thighs to each; seal bags and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 3. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink; baste occasionally with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes. Yield: 12 servings.

Recipe Note


Test Kitchen Tips

  • For grilling, we love the moistness of chicken thighs, and they're economical, too. But use any cut of chicken you like.
  • This sweet and savory glaze is also fantastic on pork chops.
  • Transport yourself to Hawaii without firing up the grill! Pat chicken dry with paper towels; sear in a touch of oil in a skillet or grill pan. Transfer to a 375-degree oven for basting and baking.

    "The first time I made this, I didn't let the chicken sit in the marinade for 8 hrs, it was more like a couple of hours. I also forgot to set aside marinade to baste with when grilling. Despite my faults, the taste was still amazing, and it has been requested over and over again. Great flavor, and so easy!!!"

    "Delicious! I mis-read the recipe and did not reserve marinade for basting and it worked out just fine. I also mixed boneless thighs and boneless chicken breasts (I cut these in half so that the sizes were similar) so that guests could have a choice. Taste was very good; I tried this out on guests and they gave it a thumbs up. It met all of the criteria I have for a winner of a recipe: it was easy, used ingredients that most people would have on hand, could be assembled ahead of time, had a short cook time and, most of all, tasted great!!"

Not sure why it says prep time is 15 minutes when it needs to marinate 8 hours! I have had a version of this recipe for many years, and instead of ketchup it asks for 1/3 cup dry sauterne and 3T Dijon mustard. NO brown sugar and half the soy sauce. It is not as salty, and calorie count is lower, but equally good."
