Huli Huli Ramen Chicken

I have come a long way since the packaged ramen noodles days. At one point, in Junior High, my friends and I would eat ramen raw right out of the bag. I don’t know if that is something y’all have done before, but I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread at the time. I’ve since learned how hillbilly that is.

Now though, I only have the prepackaged ramen for when a stomach bug tears through the household and kiddos refuse to eat anything. As soon as I realized I could purchase ramen noodles by itself without the packaging and seasoning, my life was changed.

Huli Huli chicken originated in Hawaii, and it is chicken that is grilled or roasted over an open flame while being marinated with Huli Huli sauce. Huli Huli sauce is the key to the original flavors. There is always an Asian flare of flavor with the garlic, soy sauce, and ginger; but there is also always ketchup or some sort of tomato based sauce. The sauce also has a sweet flavor and that comes from brown sugar traditionally, or honey can be substituted.

Have you ever had Huli Huli chicken? This recipe is definitely tasty and super easy to recreate. And…while the dish is traditional with chicken, it is super tasty with other types of meat, or even a vegetarian version with tofu or grilled vegetables such as mushrooms.
