Gluten-free Huli-huli Chicken Recipe

By Sandy Kirby Quandt

While on Oahu, Hawaii, Pilot and I saw signs on the road advertising Huli-huli Chicken. We had no idea what it was. Sure wish we knew then what we know now!

Once home, Pilot searched for a recipe for Huli-huli, and this is what he came up with for the grill. Pilot grills pineapple slices at the same time. Delicious!

  • 1 chicken cut-up
  • 1/2 frozen pineapple concentrate
  • 1/2 cup Gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 finger of fresh ginger, grated fine
  • couple cloves of garlic, crushed – Pilot uses 3
  • 3 Tbs brown sugar

Mix all the ingredients together and marinade the chicken for at least 1/2 hour before grilling.

Fire up your grill. When ready, place chicken on grill.

Baste frequently.

Huli-huli means turn over, turn over. So, that’s how you cook this chicken. šŸ™‚

Cook until done. About an hour.


I wish you well.
