Hawaiian Huli Chicken Marinade

Combine all the ingredients – except the chicken – in a large glass bowl and mix well.

Reserve 1 cup of the marinade for basting and refrigerate.

Split the remaining marinade between 2 large Ziplock bags. Add 12 thighs to each bag; seal bags and massage to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight for best results.


Next day, drain and discard the marinade from the chicken. Oven bake at 350f basting occasionally with the reserved marinade, for approx. 1.5 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 165f.  If grilling, cook the chicken for approximately 6-8 minutes on each side, basting from time to time.
