Broiled Huli Huli Chicken

My friends used to live in Hawaii and made this juicy chicken that is full of flavor. It's so easy to make! I serve it over over rice and add my favorite vegetable as a side.

  • 4 pounds skin-on chicken pieces

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or as needed

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 1 (1/2 inch) piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ cup chicken broth

  • 3 tablespoons pineapple juice

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar


  1. Season chicken with salt on top of and underneath the skin. Set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  2. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a broiler pan with foil.

  3. Pulse garlic and ginger in a food processor until combined. Add brown sugar, soy sauce, chicken broth, pineapple juice, and rice vinegar; process until well combined. Strain marinade into a bowl, pressing with the back of a spoon to remove all liquid. Discard pulp.

  4. Blot chicken with paper towels to remove excess salt and moisture. Place skin-side down on the prepared broiler pan.

  5. Cook under the preheated broiler, turning every 5 minutes, until raw surface have cooked, about 20 minutes. Continue to cook, turning and basting with the marinade every 5 minutes until well browned, another 20 minutes. Cover with foil and cook for 10 more minutes.
