This Grilled Huli Huli Chicken was the best thing we ate last week. Chicken Legs loves chicken thighs, so when I came across this recipe in one of my old cookbooks I knew I had to make it for him. It was SO good that we actually made it twice in one week!

The chicken is marinated all day in a quick Hawaiian BBQ sauce made of ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and sherry. It is seriously delicious! I used dried ginger in the marinade, but feel free to use fresh ginger. I am not a huge ginger fan, so I didn’t use a lot. If you love ginger, bump it up in the marinade. The bbq marinade has cooking sherry in the mixture. If you aren’t a fan of sherry, you can swap it for some chicken broth. It will still taste delicious!

We used chicken thighs in this recipe. If you aren’t a fan of chicken thighs, feel free to use chicken tenders or breasts. I am going to make it with chicken tenders this weekend. YUM! Make sure to brush the chicken with all the reserved sauce right before you pull it off the grill – the sauce is way too good to waste!

We served it with some macaroni salad and asparagus. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this bbq grilled chicken:

Notes:

Can use any cut of chicken you prefer – breasts, tenders, or thighs,

  1. Reminds me of when I was stationed in HI. Made this along with some Hawaiian macaroni, kinda a plate lunch thing.

  2. I am going to make this forn the first time tomorrow and am so excited!!

    One question – your recipe calls for dried ginger… do you use ground ginger? Or do you use something else. I just want to make sure I am using the right thing. Thanks!!
