How to make Grilled Huli Huli Chicken

This recipe is simple to do! To make it, you will need:

  • 2 lbs chicken thighs or breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • green onions, sliced for garnish
  • pineapple, sliced for serving
Grilled Huli Huli Chicken sprinkled with green onion

To start, in a bowl, I mix pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, chicken broth, ketchup and ginger. I reserve half of the sauce (to be used for basting and serving).

With the other half of the marinade, I place it in a ziplock with the chicken and place it in the fridge to marinade for at least 2 hours.

When i’m ready to cook, I (or more likely my husband) grill the chicken for approximately 6-8 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through. I remove it from the grill and then baste the chicken with the reserved sauce. Every last drop of it, cause that sauce is gold!

To serve, I garnish with green onions and serve with sliced pineapple (you can also grill the pineapple slices for a couple minutes if you like which I recommend). If you have basting sauce left over, drizzle some over the chicken before serving.

That’s it! Serve with rice (I like it with coconut rice) and your favourite greens).

I hope you enjoy this fun chicken recipe! Bon appetit!
