Tonight's dinner mission was more of a back-up plan as my original idea took longer than I had time for and my day was consumed with unexpected errands.  Oh well, at least we didn't result to going out to dinner and I'm sure what I made was way healthier for us than any fast food place.  I originally found this recipe earlier this year when my daughter was playing with her Hawaiian-themed American Girl doll, Kanani, and she asked me what type of food they ate in Hawaii.  Having never been there, the only way to figure this one out was to go online and do a little research.  After some surfing, I came across a website, Polyneasin Culture Center,  dedicated to Polynesian foods and decided Huli Huli chicken seemed simple enough to try and I figured my daughter would eat it.  Typically I would serve this with grilled pineapple, but given that it is October I doubt that a fresh pineapple would be very good so I opted to use different sides I had ingredients for already.

Here's what you'll need

Huli Huli Chicken
4 chicken breast
1 cup pineapple juice (or 1/4 cup pineapple concentrate)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup white wine
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2 drops Worcestershire sauce

I asked my husband to pick up pineapple concentrate on his way home from work because I realized I hadn't got it when I went grocery shopping last week because the store I was at didn't carry it anymore.  Well, sometimes sending someone else to the store doesn't work out like you plan and my husband thought I meant pineapple juice.  Oh well, I decided to roll with it and opted to include 1 cup of juice in place of the 1/4 cup of concentrate.  It didn't change the flavor so if you can't find concentrate, pineapple juice will work too.


In a small bowl, whisk together pineapple juice, chicken broth, white wine, ketchup, soy sauce, ginger, and Worcestershire.


Place your chicken breast on a hot grill and brush sauce.  Cook about 10 to 15 minutes then turn.  Continue to brush with sauce as the chicken is grilling.


Brush this side with sauce and continue to grill 10 to 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. 


Serve with your favorite sides.  Tonight we had rice pilaf and broccoli.
