Grilled Huli Huli Chicken Recipes

This Grilled Huli Huli Chicken was the simplest thing we ate last week. Chicken Legs loves chicken thighs, so once I found this recipe in one among my old cookbooks I knew I had to form it for him. it had been SO good that we actually made it twice!

The chicken is marinated all day during a quick Hawaiian BBQ sauce. it's seriously delicious! I used dried ginger within the marinade, but be happy to use fresh ginger. i'm not an enormous ginger fan, so I didn't use tons . If you're keen on ginger, bump it up within the marinade.

We used chicken thighs during this recipe. If you are not a lover of chicken thighs, be happy to use chicken tenders or breasts. i'm getting to make it with chicken tenders this weekend. YUM! confirm to brush the chicken with all the reserved sauce - the sauce is much too good to waste!

Grilled Huli Huli Chicken Recipes


  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 Tbsp ketchup
  • 6 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2-1/2 Tbsp sherry or chicken broth
  • 1/4 tsp 1/2 tsp dried ginger
  • 1-1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 12 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 2.5 pounds)


  1. In a small bowl, mix the first six ingredients. Reserve 1/2 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate.
  2. Pour marinade over chicken and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. (I put the chicken and marinade in a gallon ziplock bag)
  3. Remove chicken from marinade and grill until done, approximately 12 to 15 minutes. Baste chicken with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
