“To everything (turn, turn, turn, turn),
there is a season (turn, turn, turn)”…..the Byrds
Apologies for the dated reference, but the discovery that “huli” means “to turn” got me to thinking about the cooking steps involved in the creation of this delicious favorite, for which this is definitely the season! Three simple steps which each add depth to the sweet, smoky, fruity flavor, and during each of these steps you turn, turn, turn. First you marinate, for a few hours to overnight, then you grill and baste while grilling, and then right at the end of the cooking, you add some glaze and let it cook into the tasty chicken or pork. You can also serve the glaze with the dish for even more Hawaiian scrumptiousness.
I like to make these as skewers, but the recipe works just as well with full chicken breasts, chicken wings or thighs and is great with lean pork too.
