These quick Huli Huli Chicken Noodles are a weeknight favorite at our house. There are only a few simple ingredients in the recipe and it takes about 15 minutes to make. Chicken simmered in a sweet Hawaiian BBQ sauce and tossed with ramen noodles and green onions. YUM! We always have the ingredients on hand to whip up these spicy noodles. They are SO much better than takeout!

How to Make Huli Huli Chicken Noodles

This noodle bowl is super easy to make. Start with cooking some ramen noodles. Drain the noodles and set aside. Next, sauté some chicken in a skillet. Add soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, ginger, sherry, and garlic to the skillet. Bring the sauce to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the cooked ramen noodles and toss everything together. Garnish the dish with some green onions.

  • What is Huli Huli Chicken? Huli huli chicken comes from Hawaii. Huli means “turn” in Hawaiian. Authentic huli huli chicken is usually made with a whole chicken and cooked on a grill. It is rotated while cooking and basted in a sweet teriyaki-like sauce.
  • Feel free to add some fresh broccoli, asparagus, green beans, or some sugar snap peas to these noodles. It is a great way to sneak some veggies into dinner.
  • You can use either raw or cooked chicken in this dish. Either one is fine. If using raw chicken, just cut it up into bite-sized pieces and sauté for a few minutes before adding the sauce mixture. If you are using already cooked chicken, chop it into bite-sized pieces and toss it into the bubbling sauce. SO easy and a great way to use up any leftover chicken you have lying around.
  • Don’t like chicken? You can use any meat/protein that you enjoy. Pork, steak, or tofu all work great.
  • You can use any flavor of ramen noodles. You are not using the seasoning packet in this recipe.

  1. I googled it- cooking sherry can be replaced with other cooking wines, or apple cider vinegar, apple juice or orange juice! I’ll let you know when I make it what works!

  2. Is there a substitute for Sherry, never have that in my house so wondering if it is necessary. Also, when I print out recipes from this site they don’t print out like the recipe looks on the webpage. Do you know why that would be. Don’t have trouble from any other sites printing recipes.

  3. What can I substitute for the sherry? Would it affect the taste a lot if I just left it out? Love your recipes – they always turn out great!

  4. This sounds so good! I have a question. Is the sherry in your recipe, cooking sherry? Also, if you don’t have any kind of sherry (cooking or otherwise), what would be a good substitute? Thank you in advance! Loving your recipes here in Kentucky! 🙂
