This is a dish Scott had in Hawaii and loved. After some research I found the original recipe which is fantastic. Huli in Hawaiian means Turn.
This recipe is great either on the BBQ or in the oven and can be done with a whole chicken jointed or just maryland or thighs. I did mine with bone in thighs and marinaded for 4 hours. I did however freeze some in the marinade which worked really well as well.
1/3 cup tomato sauce
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup sherry
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 cm piece of ginger, crushed
3 garlic cloves, crushed
pinch of chilli flakes
juice of half a lemon
Chicken jointed as desired. This amount will marinade 3 whole chickens or 2 with some marinade to baste.
Place all ingredients in a jug and mix.
I double bagged my chicken in zip loc bags to ensure there was no leakage.
Pour a third of the marinade over the chicken and seal with as much air removed from the bag.
Seal the second bag for insurance. Marinade for 4 hours. You can freeze at this stage as well.
If using the oven, fry on the stove top first to get the crispy skin and render some of the fat off.
Place on a baking sheet baste with the spare marinade and bake at 170C for 1 hour remember to turn and baste every 15 minutes.
