Huli-huli chicken


Huli-huli chicken (huli means "turn") is a Hawaiian roadside treat of chicken marinated in pineapple, soy sauce and ginger. This version, where the chicken is basted instead, is both quick and tasty.

You'll need

250 ml (1 cup) fresh pineapple juice 125 ml (½ cup) tomato sauce 125 ml (½ cup) light soy sauce 60 gm brown sugar 2 tbsp malt vinegar 30 gm (6cm piece) ginger, finely grated 3 garlic cloves, finely grated 1 tbsp each hot paprika, cumin seeds, onion flakes and black peppercorns ½ tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste 1.8 kg chicken pieces on the bone, such as thighs or drumsticks 2 tbsp olive oil To serve: steamed rice, coriander and lime halves

Method

  • 01
  • Combine pineapple juice, tomato sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, ginger and garlic in a saucepan, bring to the boil over medium heat and cook until slightly reduced (10 minutes).
  • 02
  • Heat a barbecue or char-grill pan to medium-high heat. Finely grind paprika, cumin, onion flakes, pepper, cayenne and 1 tbsp sea salt flakes with a mortar and pestle (or small food processor). Place chicken in a bowl, drizzle with oil, then scatter with paprika mixture and toss to coat well, patting mixture into meat. Grill chicken, basting frequently with pineapple sauce and turning occasionally, until cooked through (8-12 minutes). Serve hot with rice, coriander and lime halves.
