Just finished eating Saiko's Huli Huli chicken. I overcooked and it was dry, but the flavor is good. I will make this again.

Funny you said that, we normally use chicken halves for Huli huli, and its normally cooked well past done...not on purpose, it just happens, because it done in big bathches...IMHO...

Looks perfect! Don't know if you read an earlier thread on Huli Huli, but a couple of people have had the chicken come out a little "mushy" with a full hour-plus marinade. I made a batch today and shortened my marinade time down to 30 minutes and the texture was perfect.
As mentioned in other threads, they don't traditionally use pineapple in the marinade in Hawaii, but I think it really adds a pop to the flavor profile.

Wierd thing is, the wifey and I have been going to Maui for Christmas for the last 15 years (don't know why, we just always have), and I've never seen a Huli Huli chicken stand. I guess they are more popular on the big island, Oahu and Kauai.
