HAWAIIAN HULI HULI CHICKEN RECIPE

This amazing recipe for Huli Huli Chicken comes from my friend Patricia. She originally shared her family recipe on the blog here about 8 years ago. Her recipe has since become one of my favorites so I figured this recipe post needed an update!HULI HULI CHICKEN ON A PLATE WITH SLICED LEMON

WHAT IS HULI HULI CHICKEN?

Huli Huli is Hawaiian for “Turn, Turn.” It is basically a Hawaiian version of teriyaki chicken. Patricia remembers this being sold in Hawaii often for school fundraisers. The chicken is on a rotisserie skewer and is turned over a fire and basted regularly with a sweet sauce which is similar to a sweet Teriyaki sauce.Grilled Hawaiian Huli Huli Chicken with sliced lemons on a metal serving tray

I think it is best served with some sticky rice or HAWAIIAN MACARONI SALAD. I always make extra sauce so I can baste the chicken as it cooks. So delicious!Huli Huli Chicken recipe from The Country Cook
