How To Make It
A Honolulu businessman served a teriyaki style chicken dish to his dinner guests one night in 1955 and was so impressed by their response that he started marketing it. The result was Huli Huli chicken.
The original recipe is a trade secret, but we’re sure your guests will be just as impressed by your version! Because this is a sweet and sour dish you can experiment with the flavors – use honey instead of brown sugar if you like, or you could use vinegar instead of lime juice if you prefer less citrus flavor.
Traditionally this dish is accompanied by grilling some pineapple rings on the grill, which adds to the Hawaiian theme. It goes well with plain rice or a side salad to balance the strong flavors of ginger, garlic, soy sauce and lime juice, but could also be served with steamed vegetables.
