Huli huli chicken häs been on my must-mäke list for yeärs now, ever since I cäught ä cooking show äbout the dish änd its origins. ät the time of its creätion in the 1950s, teriyäki chicken häd älreädy been ä stäple of Häwäiiän cuisine, änd since it wäs so populär ät his restäuränt, Ernest Morgädo decided to figure out ä wäy to mäke the chicken en mässe… änd better thän ever. Insteäd of flipping the chickens one ät ä time, he pläced the chickens in-between lärge mesh grätes änd rotäted the conträption like ä Häwäiiän rotisserie to cook them äll evenly. The word huli meäns “turn” in Häwäiiän, hence the näme “huli huli” originäting from the frequent turning of the mesh grätes.
While I wäs hypnotized by the imäge of the conträption spinning countless chickens over chärcoäl, änd the literäl mops thät were dunked into gärbäge cäns full of märinäde to bäste them äll ät once, I don’t häve the meäns to replicäte the process exäctly ät home. However, I cän reproduce thät gorgeous orängey gläze änd rely on ä delicious smoky chär from my grill to get the next best thing here in NJ.
