If you’ve traveled in Hawaii at all, perhaps you’ve smelled it—that enticing smoky, distinctive huli chicken smell billowing from roadside stands, food carts and restaurants all over the islands. Hawaiian huli huli chicken originated in 1955 when Honolulu-based businessman Ernest Morgado whipped up a teriyaki-inspired sauce based on a recipe handed down from his mother. He slathered it all over some grilled chicken, and served it to a large group of local farmers. A bit sticky, sweet and smoky, it was an instant hit. It’s called “huli huli” because huli is the Hawaiian word for “turn” and huli huli chicken is turned constantly as it is cooked. Traditionally, chicken pieces were placed between two grill racks and flipped part-way through the grilling process, but you’ll also often find huli huli chicken in Hawaii cooked on a rotisserie. Ours is grilled and turned often while being basted with our yummy sauce.
