  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or canned)
  • Sliced green onions for garnish (optional)
  • Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Marinade
  • In a bowl, combine 1 cup of pineapple juice, 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of ketchup, 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar, 4 cloves of minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of minced ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. 
  • Stir the marinade mixture until the sugar is completely dissolved or cooked for 3 minutes in a small saucepan. 
Huli Huli Sauce is Prepared.  

Step 2: Marinate the Chicken
  • Place 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a large resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. 
  • Make sure the chicken is evenly coated with Huli Huli Sauce after pouring the marinade over it.
  • Seal the bag or cover the dish, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to infuse into the chicken.

Step 3: Preheat the Grill
  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. To avoid sticking, make sure it's clean and lightly lubricated with lightly oil.

Step 4: Grill the Chicken and Pineapple
  • Take the marinated chicken out of the plastic bag or a shallow dish.
  • Place the chicken breasts and brush any leftover marinade on them on the preheated grill and cook for about 6–8 minutes per side, or until they are fully cooked through with nice grill marks.
  • During the last few minutes of grilling, add 1 cup of pineapple chunks to the grill. Cook until they start to caramelize and get a little burnt.

Step 5: Serve
  • After the chicken is thoroughly cooked, take it from the grill and give it some time to rest.
  • Slice the chicken breasts diagonally into strips.
  • Serve the sliced chicken with the grilled pineapple.
  • If preferred, garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.

Step 6: Enjoy!
  • Serve the Huli Huli Garlic Chicken with Pineapple alongside your favorite side dishes, such as rice or grilled vegetables.
