Huli Huli Pineapple Chicken

Recipe by  

"This Hawaiian BBQ is commonly found at roadside fundraisers. This recipe uses crushed pineapple and brown sugar for caramelized texture and wonderful flavor. And, if you are wondering, 'huli' is the Hawaiian term for 'turn.'"

Directions

  1. Stir pineapple, brown sugar, shoyu, ketchup, red wine, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, garlic, and liquid smoke together in a pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced and thickened, about 30 minutes. Cool completely. Transfer 1 1/2 cups sauce to a bowl and refrigerate.
  2. Place chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour remaining sauce over the top; toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator, 4 hours to overnight.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade; discard used marinade.
  5. Cook chicken on the preheated grill until caramelized, about 5 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low and cook, turning and basting frequently with reserved 1 1/2 cups pineapple sauce, until no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I loved this! I saved some of the marinade to use with chicken kabobs at a later date. Hubs thought it was good, but felt it needed a kick (he says that about everything though). I served this with Caesar Salad Supreme (also from the site) and grilled bread, and it made a delicious summer meal. Thanks Mark, for sharing your recipe!

This marinade is superb. Have tried many, but this was the first that gained a 5-star hubby review. You will love it.
