Another recipe from the luau we had on Saturday. We came up with this one after a few failed attempts to get that island flavor down.
Many Hawaiian dishes as most good recipes of any nationality are made with just a few simple ingredients. But like making bread. which has the basics of ingredients to it. it is very tough to get the right amounts down other than through trial and error.
We here at the Foodopolis test kitchen have tested this one again and again. this recipe seems to be our favorite version. Or maybe it was because we marinated ourselves first?
Either way. We submit for your culinary approval. Our version of another classic.
Huli Huli Chicken.
5lbs - Chicken pieces
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup Shoyu (soy sauce)
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1tbs diced ginger
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cup chicken stock for sauce.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl but not the chicken stock. Place chicken in liquid and let marinade for at least 2-4 hours. Place chicken on hot grill and grill until chicken is cooked thoroughly. Don't go to far from the grill, all the sugar that is in this marinade will burn quickly.
Pour remaining marinade in a sauce pan along with the chicken stock and reduce by half. strain it and pour over the cooked chicken.
