Summer is the perfect time for a bit of grill and braai on the weekend. However, you can always try new recipes from around the world and chicken is the best way to experiment. This huli-huli BBQ chicken recipe is sweet, sticky and perfectly tender when you take a bite, giving you everything you’ve ever wanted.

It’s all in the marinade when it comes to the chicken to perfectly flavour the chicken while helping tenderize it. Huli-huli chicken is Hawaiian grilled chicken prepared by barbecuing a chicken over mesquite wood, and basting it with a sweet huli-huli sauce. Serve your chicken with some rice and potato bake or creamy mushrooms, and roasted vegetables.
