What is a Huli Huli Chicken & What Makes it So Popular?

The Huli Huli Chicken is a popular dish in Hawaii. The dish consists of chicken marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar, and ginger that is then fried in a hot air fryer.

This dish can be made using an air fryer but it’s also possible to make it using the oven. An air fryer will cook the chicken faster and with less oil than an oven. However, the air fryer version has been found to be healthier because there are no added oils that can cause high-fat content.

The Huli Huli Chicken was originally created by Chef Roy Yamaguchi who was inspired by his mother’s cooking style from Okinawa, Japan.

How an Air Fryer Can Help You Cook the Perfect Chicken

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that uses hot air to cook food. It is a great way to get crispy and tasty food without the need for oil or any other cooking utensil.

With an air fryer, you can get crispy, juicy chicken with minimal effort!

  • 1/4 cup splenda
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger

Using a fork, poke the hols into the chicken, then place it in a large bowl. Set aside.
