Huli Huli Chicken

Can I just say....Oh my yummy! This was a huge hit. The chicken was so moist and had the best flavor. I think this is a new family favorite. Especially with summer barbeque's coming up.

Huli Huli Chicken

5-8 Large chicken Breasts cut in half
3/4 C GF soy sauce
1/2 C freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 C honey
1/3 C brown sugar
3 Tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbsp minced fresh ginger root
1 tsp Asian chile paste or sambal oelek ( I used Sambal Chili Paste. Can be bought at Smith's)
1 tsp sesame oil
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Hawaiian sea salt or other salt to taste

In a medium-size bowl, whisk together all ingredients except chicken. Place the chicken in a Ziplock bag and pour in marinade. Marinate for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator. Grill until chicken is done.
